    When it comes to testing on emulators, how common is for developers to test on different AVDs (actual emulators) build with "different images" and "hardware profiles"? I am referring to `emulator avd create` as in this link http://www.androiddocs.com/tools/devices/managing-avds-cmdline.html#AVDCmdLine (The link is a bit old but it shows the command). Right now all my testing has been focused on a single image/API. What is your testing strategy? Is emulators even in your testing plan?

    I am also using this as a reference: http://www.androiddocs.com/tools/devices/index.html

    This is probably a better link as it is associated to official documentation:
    https://developer.android.com/studio/run/emulator#android_virtual_devices

    One of the challenges on using different platform during testing is that, from what I understand, the platform also depends on the build-tools version. I have had issues of platform/build-tools compatibility before but the root cause issue is not 100% clear to me... yet.

    Any comments or if you don't mind sharing your experiences. Thank you,
