What are the Limitations of android emulator?

The Android emulator is a convenient tool to develop the application without a real handset , but it has many  limitations which are as under:

(1) The emulator is not a device. It simulates general handset behavior, not specific hardware implementations.

(2)Sensor data, such as satellite location information, battery and power settings, and network connectivity, are all simulated using your computer.

 (3)Peripherals such as camera hardware are not fully functional.

 (4)Phone calls cannot be placed or received but are simulated. SMS messages are also simulated and do not use a real network.

(5)No USB or Bluetooth support is available.

(6)Using Android emulator is not a substitute for testing on a true target handset or device.
