Does 'ionic run android' do the same thing as 'ionic build android'?

I ask this because running on ionic serve appears to work fine.

After making sure everything is smooth there, I ran ‘ionic run adroid’ to put it on my phone, but things don’t look or work quite the same way. Wondering if I had an older version and I needed to run build first.

run will build then push to connected device and build will only build and let you take care of your installation process.
