Appium Tests seem to be quite slow compared to the Appium Tests that execute in seconds.
Initially I had thought this could be due to implementing wait mechanisms like that of Implicit wait, Explicit wait and Fluent wait.
Later found that there was no need for any wait between the commands in my Appium Test. Only place where there was need for Fluent Wait was during Synchronization. A selenium Test which use to take less than a minute takes 2.4 minutes to complete in Appium on the Android Device.
I would be very grateful to know if this is expected of Appium and Appium Studio? My concern is about running a number of tests in a continuous integration environment like Teamcity and looks like these Appium Tests could take more than a few hours to complete while the Selenium Web Tests take very less time to run successfully.
In other words, I would be very happy to know if this is a technology limitation and we are still to innovate robust and quicker mobile testing strategies or if I have got something basically wrong in the way I have setup my Appium tests please?
