4.7 inch phones drive the most web traffic, according to the new DeviceAtlas report

The team at DeviceAtlas has put together a new report that reveals the latest statistics on the mobile web browsing trends in Q3 2015. A large part of the report is focused on screen sizes and screen resolutions. We learned that the humble 4.7 inch screen size is today the most popular. The report also covers the most used MNOs, device diversity, screen resolutions, as well as mobile OS, smartphone and vendor popularity.

Screen sizes driving the most traffic

According to the DeviceAtlas report, the most popular screen size driving the largest amount of website hits is 4.7 inch. The only popular device featuring a 4.7 inch screen is, of course, iPhone 6/6S. Other 4.7 inch phones are much less sought-after and also rather old models, such as HTC One (2013), Moto X (2013), Samsung Galaxy Alpha (2014). In 2015, the only 4.7 inch Android smartphones were cheap, low-quality models, for example Samsung Galaxy J2.

The most used screen resolutions include 750×1334 used by iPhone 6/6S and Full HD (1080×1920) used by many flagship devices such as iPhone 6 Plus / 6S Plus, Samsung Galaxy S5, Sony Xperia Z5 or HTC One M9.

Learn about the trends in mobile web browsing in Q3 2015

Released every quarter, DeviceAtlas reports are entirely based on website hits generated by mobile devices. Therefore the reports differ a lot from sales statistics typically released by market research companies. DeviceAtlas reports focus on existing mobile device users and their habits, and not on buying trends. In the Q3 2015 edition you can learn about:

  • Most used MNOs based on website traffic
  • Mobile device diversity in different countries (devices, vendors, OSes, etc.)
  • Most popular diagonal screen sizes and screen resolutions
  • Most used OSes, vendors and smartphone models
