They say that history is written by victors in a war, which makes sense actually, as the vanquished do not have a chance, if ever, to tell their side of the story to the rest of the world. Well, when it comes to performance of various devices, the same applies as well, as it really depends on which side of the fence you are on as you approach a particular review. comScore, a company that is touted to be a leader in measuring the digital world, has just rolled out an analysis of mobile and Wi-Fi Internet usage on smartphones in the US and the UK. This conclusion was arrived by the folks at comScore using census-level behavioral data from comScore Device Essentials, where they studied the share of unique smartphones connecting to operator and Wi-Fi networks.
In an US analysis of Wi-Fi and mobile Internet usage across a range of smartphones that run on the iOS and Android operating systems, 71% of all unique iPhones used both mobile and Wi-Fi networks to hook up to the Internet, while a mere 32% of unique Android smartphones ran on both types of connections. Across the pond, the iPhone edged out Android smartphones by 87% to 57%. I would not lose too much sleep over the result of this survey, as at the end of the day might does not make right – use what you are happy with, and stick to it. [Press Release]
