I use Google Analytics on this website. Few lines of JS tracking code collects plethora of visitor information.
One of the matrix of Analytics service is, Mobile – under category of Audience Overview.
It’s quite an interesting section. Let’s have a look at it. I’ve taken sample of 1,00,000 sessions. Mobile industry is volatile, current scores are prone to change. I will compare stakes again after one year.
Most Popular Mobile Devices
|2||Google Nexus 5||4.8|
|4||Samsung Grand 2||1.47|
|6||Samsung Grand Quattro||0.95|
|8||Samsung Note II||0.89|
|9||Sony Xperia C||0.80|
|10||Motorola Moto G2||0.76|
Apple is leading the board. However, it’s worthwhile to note that Apple iPhone bucket holds – iPhone 4S, iPhone 5/5S, iPhone 6/6 Plus.
Most Popular Mobile Brands
Share of Samsung + Apple ≅ Share of all other brands combined.
Most Popular Mobile OS
Android is the king!
If we move go back in time to June 2006, Nokia would be sitting on throne, with over 80% share.
Most Popular Browsers
Data is combination of both mobile and desktop browsers.
Now that Chrome comes pre installed as default browser in Android devices, its share will only soar up. UC Browser at second spot surprising to me. Last time when I used it, it was heavily bloated and full of spam.
Whenever I see browser comparison, I always remember 😀 :
