The state of smartphones in 2014

Posted on Jan 11, 2015 in Links, Mobile

Great summary about the current smartphone market:

The state of smartphones in 2014: Ars Technica’s Ultimate Guide

All the phones you need to know about, and everything you need to know about them.

Tl;dr: Just tell me what to buy!

Before we get started, here is the version of this article for people who just want purchasing recommendations.

If you like iOS, get an iPhone 6.

If you like Android, get a 2014 Moto X. If you like Android but hate the Moto X’s camera and battery life, get a Samsung Galaxy S5. If you like Android and want a big phone, get a Samsung Galaxy Note 4.

If you like Android or don’t have a preference and want a solid, inexpensive unlocked phone, get a Moto G. We’d favor the larger 2014 model because it’s newer and more likely to be supported for longer, but the smaller 2013 version is cheaper and essentially identical.

If you like Windows Phone and you need something today, get an HTC One M8 for Windows. If you can possibly wait, sit on your hands until a new Lumia flagship comes out.

Why are Android users less engaged than iOS users?

Posted on Nov 27, 2012 in Links, Mobile

Giga.com Mobile has published a interesting analysis of IBM data from the latest Black Friday shopping traffic and tries to find some answers of the question: “Why is iOS still so dominant?”

IBM said that 77 percent of mobile traffic on Black Friday came from iOS devices. This despite the fact that Comscore said that Android has 52.5 percent of smartphone subscribers while iOS has 34.3 percent. Some of it comes down to the iPad, which is still the dominant tablet and produces the most traffic compared to iPhones and Android phones. But like the iPhone, the iPad exhibits outsized usage patterns beyond its actual marketshare. Gartner said in the third quarter, iPad shipments have dropped to 50.4 percent. But IBM said it contributed 88 percent of the tablet traffic over the long weekend.
