What is Fidelity?


Fidelity is used to describing the quality of wireframes and prototypes. In other words, how closely the wireframe or prototype resembles what a live product will look like. The fidelity of the prototype refers to the level of detail and functionality built into a product or a system. Fidelity may vary across areas of interactivity- views, content, and commands.

There are three levels of fidelity: low, medium, and high. Low Fidelity prototypes contain sticky notes and sketches, which is great for high-level brainstorming and collaboration. Mid-fidelity prototypes are often called wireframes. High-fidelity prototypes represent an almost finished product.

With high-fidelity interactivity and/or visuals, you can test workflows, specific UI components (such as mega menus, accordion), graphical elements such as affordability, page hierarchy, type legibility, image quality, as well as engagement.

Whereas with less fidelity; Less time building a stable prototype before testing, and more time working on the design. Creating a clickable prototype takes time. Without a working prototype, you can spend more time designing pages, menus, or content.
