    - Smoke testing is broad and shallow.

    - Smoke testing is designed to touch every part of the application in a cursory way.

    - It is scripted, either using a written set of tests or an automated test.

    - It is normal health check up to build of an application before taking it to testing in depth.

    Sanity testing : is deep and narrow regression test that focuses on one or a few areas of functionality.

    - It is usually unscripted.

    - Sanity testing is used to determine a small section of the application is still working after a minor change.

    - It is used to verify whether requirements are met or not.
