Hey everyone,

spent some time on web automation with Selenium now, enjoy it a lot and wanted to dive deeper into Appium now. Are there any advantages later down the road if I get myself a phone just for automation purposes or is there no point in that over simply using your personal phone? I wouldn't run it on personal social media accounts on my phone anyways, just on other apps.

It depends, it's useful if you'll actually make use of it by running automation 24/7

I don't like mixing things with personal apps, so for me it would definitely be worth it. Although my mobile things I usually do on bluestacks or on Multilogin Android browser.
