One of the most crucial aspects of an Open Device Lab is keeping up to date with the latest technology. As of today, we’re bringing in a refreshed collection of brand new devices and removing some older, unused devices. This time around, rather than just bumping up our total devices, we’re cutting the chaff and improving the device lab’s quality.

This switch is a key part of our dedication to keep the ODL updated, relevant, and engaging. Thanks to our partnership with WDS, we’re able to have all these new devices and keep the ODL updated.

Devices leaving the lab

Many of the devices leaving the lab are very old. As I packed them away to go back to WDS, it showed how far we’ve come since the early 00’s of mobile phones.

Many of these devices we’ve had in the lab for a while now, and many of them were left unused. Some don’t have WiFi and don’t work with modern carriers, rendering them useless.

Most of these devices are from 2014. We’ve tried hard to get modern devices. We’ve got an iPhone 6 joining our iOS devices in the lab. We’ve got some huge phablets that put the iPhone 6 Plus to shame, we recommend them as a must-test for your sites and apps. There’s also the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, an immensely popular and immensely huge phablet.

We’ve also got a XiaoMi Android phone joining the lab. These aren’t available in Europe or the US. XiaoMi is the biggest phone manufacturer in the world you’ve probably never heard of, selling 61 million phones last year. If you’re planning on your project being seen worldwide, then you can’t skip out on this phone.
