In the run-up to the test, we defined practical requirements and the following test criteria:
- Print quality
- Usability of the app
- Additional Functions
In order to evaluate these criteria, we have defined several tests for the Mini printers. First, the scope of delivery and functionality are checked. The devices are set up according to the manufacturer's specifications and connected to the corresponding app.
When using the app, it is assessed how user-friendly and intuitive the operation is. In addition, further editing functions of the apps are tested. Photos of objects, people and panoramas are taken in the test sequences.
These are then printed out by the devices, stopping the time required. The finished photos are checked for quality and directly compared with each other. It is also tested how easily the printers can be transported in everyday life.
In order to rule out errors and to ensure the stress of everyday use, each test takes place in several rounds.
The test criteria are given percentages depending on their importance. The final score is then objectively calculated from the test criteria using an algorithm.
Our product selection is based on an observation of the current market. In addition to popular branded products, we also include insider tips in our selection. Criteria such as price and range of functions are an important factor for us. The test field is also determined by analysis and evaluation of customer reviews and external tests (e.g. Stiftung Warentest).
The devices are purchased anonymously or lent to us by the manufacturer. Dealers and manufacturers have no influence on the tests and our evaluation.
As soon as new relevant products come onto the market, our test field is extended by these. The new products go through the same test as the already tested devices.
