The more I use while developing the application under Android emulator or real phone?

Now actively developing applications for Android and constantly use the debug under a real phone to better "feel" of the interface. Although you have to wait longer for the installation at startup.

It is normal practice, or because no one else does?

... exactly as long as you need to check your pod^Wприложение 100500:
  • screen resolutions
  • screen sizes
  • the aspect ratio
  • densities of pixels
  • versions of API
  • younameit

It is normal practice) Also use the debug on a real device. For me it's much more convenient and faster.

In fact, do what you want. And Yes, on a smartphone easier, and I always test apps on it. You can run the built-in Android Studio virtual machine, but it eats system resources OVERдофига(sitting on Ubuntu 18.04). And so, it all depends on your preferences: like live - take a smartphone, do not like VM. But then again, the smartphone has some limitations: version Android root/no root, and so on. But I usually limit myself to a phone.

Emulator use only in a pinch. Slow, bad, I want it to. Real device is better. What they say about the version of API and other bullshit - garbage. The emulator will almost never identify the real problems, maybe they are often not API-specific, and manufacturer - and device-specific.
