These are some of the test cases that I can think of. Many other specific test cases can be made based on the type and the device’s company. Let me know if you have any other test cases in mind. I’d be happy to add these test cases to the above list.

I love open-source technologies and am very passionate about software development. I like to share my knowledge with others, especially on technology that's why I have given all the examples as simple as possible to understand for beginners. All the code posted on my blog is developed, compiled, and tested in my development environment.
