London Open Device Lab

If you design or build websites or mobile applications, you will want to test the layout and behaviour on a range of mobile devices. But how can you do so when they are so expensive?

Now there is a solution – the London Open Device Lab, a Test Lab in central London where you can do your testing free of charge.

How Does it Work?

Just call us on 020 8102 9500 or email  to make an appointment. Then come to our Test Lab and do all your testing using our devices – you can see the list of our devices at the bottom of the page.

Is it Really Free?

Yes, there is no charge for reasonable usage, and it's unlikely that an individual developer will exceed that limit. We also offer paid-for options for organisations that require access for extended periods.

When is the Lab Open?

It is always open during normal office hours and it is sometimes open during the evenings or weekends.

We can usually provide next-day access, and it may even be possible to come the same day.

Donate your Devices

If you have any devices that you are willing to donate or loan, please email

We will return the device if you ever want it back.

Mobile Device List

The table below lists the devices we currently have in stock. Availability depends on the needs of our Test Lab and other visitors to the Open Device Lab, so please let us know in advance if there are any devices you specifically need.
