Each instance of the emulator uses an Android Virtual Device (AVD) to configure its size, form factor, Android version, and various hardware characteristics.
To effectively test your app, you should create an AVD that models each device type that your app is designed to support.
Beginining with revision 27.0.2, the Android Emulator includes a feature called Quick Boot that launches the emulator in just a few seconds.
Although the AVD must perform a cold boot the first time you start it (just like powering on a device), all subsequent starts use Quick Boot—it boots fast and the system is restored to the state at which you closed the emulator (similar to waking a device).
