Connect a physical device for testing: Android Development Essential Training: Create Your First App

Whenever possible, I recommend testing your apps with physical devices. You'll get a more realistic sense of how your app will behave in your users’ hands. And there are many things a physical device can do that are difficult to emulate with a virtual device. For most of this course, I'll be demonstrating my sample apps with this Nexus 5X cell phone running Android 7 Nougat. I’m projecting the phone’s screen to my computer’s screen, but it really is an actual phone.
