BrowserStack vs LambdaTest: What are the differences?

Developers describe BrowserStack as "Instant access to a lab of 1000+ real mobile and desktop browsers for testing". Live, Web-Based Browser Testing Instant access to all real mobile and desktop browsers. Say goodbye to your lab of devices and virtual machines. On the other hand, LambdaTest is detailed as "Perform Cross Browser Testing on 2000+ Real Browsers and Operating System Online". LambdaTest is a cloud-based testing platform and it provides access to a powerful network cloud of 2000+ real browsers and operating system that helps testers in cross-browser and cross-platform compatibility testing.

BrowserStack and LambdaTest can be categorized as "Browser Testing" tools.

Some of the features offered by BrowserStack are:

  • Real Device Cloud. Test on a range of physical Android and iOS mobile devices and tablets for the most accurate results
  • 1100+ desktop browsers. Latest versions of IE, Edge, Safari, Chrome, Firefox and more on a range of Windows and OS X platforms on a robust cloud infrastructure
  • Test dev environments. Our Local Testing feature allows you to test development and internal websites seamlessly, without setup or configuration

On the other hand, LambdaTest provides the following key features:

  • Selenium Web Automation
  • Real-time testing of web app on cloud based desktop and mobile browsers
  • Test your locally hosted web app using SSH Tunnel feature

"Multiple browsers" is the top reason why over 121 developers like BrowserStack, while over 3 developers mention "Integration with Gitlab" as the leading cause for choosing LambdaTest.

Advice on BrowserStack and LambdaTest

I am looking to purchase one of these tools for Mobile testing for my team. It should support Native, hybrid, and responsive app testing. It should also feature debugging, parallel execution, automation testing/easy integration with automation testing tools like Selenium, and the capability to provide availability of devices specifically for us to use at any time with good speed of performing all these activities.

I have already used Perfecto mobile, and Sauce Labs in my other projects before. I want to know how different or better is AWS Device farm in usage and how advantageous it would be for us to use it over other mentioned tools
