1. First of all we need to check, what all android version this app supports.

2. Look and feel of the app on smart phones and tablets.

3. Change in orientation
For devices that support multiple orientations, Android detects a change in orientation when the user turns the device so that the display is "landscape" (long edge is horizontal) instead of "portrait" (long edge is vertical).

When Android detects a change in orientation, its default behavior is to destroy and then re-start the foreground Activity. You should consider testing the following:

Is the screen re-drawn correctly? Any custom UI code you have should handle changes in the orientation.

Does the application maintain its state? The Activity should not lose anything that the user has already
entered into the UI. The application should not "forget" its place in the current transaction.

4. Change in Configuration
Besides testing that the application maintains the UI and its transaction state, you should also test that the application updates itself to respond correctly to the new configuration.

5. Battery Life
You need to test its battery performance

While doing Android App Testing, we are not concentrating on core functionality of mobile devices but we test the effect of core functionality of mobile devices on functionality of application. First we verify the device and device version of application, then we can do installation testing, Connectivity issue with deffer network like wifi, 2G, 3G or EDGE, Interrupt Testing like Calls and SMS during the application is running, Functional Testing of application, uninstallation testing.
