can be assumed, that a contract behaves in the same way on the Ropsten Test test as well as on the main net, in terms of gas consumption for example?

(I think, that the gas price might be different?)

Are there examples that show, that there is a major difference (for example when using dependencies like deployed libraries, that are not available on another net).

    Good question, I deployed an identical smart contract on Ropsten and my own private network. The gas usage on Ropsten was much higher. Unfortunately, I did't had enough time to figure out why. – jim Jan 11 '18 at 13:02
  • Hmmm ok, as long as the test network has higher gas usage than the mainnet, then it's good, but still, same results would be nicer... thank you for sharing your experience – smaco Jan 13 '18 at 23:00
  • I've been wondering this for awhile, did you happen to find a source or more info? – blackops Feb 1 '18 at 1:44
