As a UX designer, one needs to do research. For those who don’t have the idea what fidelity is? it is basically the details in the design structure and high fidelity means point by point level of detailed structure and functionality. They basically fill the gaps and missing parts in low fidelity designs and precisely speak about the product. A prototype is interaction design, closest to the final design.
High fidelity design is also known as High-fi or Hi-fi. Similarly, you might be thinking of lo-fi, What is the use lo-fi if we have hi-fi? Let’s me explain it more.
There is no contention here: that they do considerably more than the low-fidelity structure. Where low-fidelity wireframes use place holders, but its counterpart utilizes close to a real final design. Hi-fi designs are for UI (User interface) and UX (User Experience) both but in case of lo-fi we only take care of UX part only. Hi-fi designs require less effort from the client and stakeholder to understand the product.
Before accepting the final structure, the designer,developer, and stakeholder should have a clear idea about what they are creating. It would give a clear idea to the client about what the final product will look like. Hi-fi design can be good and bad both.
Drawbacks of Hi-fi wireframing :
As a UX Designer,You should find the advantages and disadvantages before you begin your detailed wireframes.Throughout this process we try to put ourselves in the shoes of the user to have a better understanding. At last, it relies upon the project and the desires of your client whether to utilize high or low-fidelity wireframes.
