iPhone v/s Android in wi-fi hotspot
This is a guest post by Kelly. She is an amazing blogger and a writer too. Have a look at her writing on iPhone v/s android in wi-fi.
iPhone and android have had a neck to neck competition and both are trying to get an edge over another. Android may have gained a lot of market but iPhone has kept its progress in the competition alive. Both these brands provide millions of apps in their stores which their respective consumers access through either wi-fi or mobile networks. However a recent study has shown that iPhone users prefer to use wi-fi more than their android counterparts.
Android users have been noticed to use their mobile browsers more than the wi-fi to connect to internet. The ratio of the wi-fi users of iPhone to Android users is 2:1, which is quite surprising keeping in view the fact that Android users seem to rely more on mobile networks for internet connection rather than using wi-fi. The ratio 2:1 means that half of the Android users do not connect to wi-fi for internet connection at all.
The 4G factor: iPhone v/s android
One of the major reasons behind the statistics is that Android users in U.S have the availability of 4G LTE, which is connects the phone much faster than wi-fi connections. However the data transfer in uploading and downloading files is far more consumed as compared to wi-fi. While as iPhone does not support the 4G LTE means that iPhone users in U.S have got the option of wi-fi connectivity only. For this reason the wi-fi users for iPhone outnumber the users of Android. Similarly in U.K the non-availability of cheap data plans and scarcity of 4G LTE means that there more iPhone users connect via wi-fi rather than mobile networks. For this reason the iPhone users in U.K have to use wi-fi as their mode of internet connection because of the fact that 4G is not yet popular or widely used in U.K.
The survey that tells the story
The report also shows that 71 per cent of iPhone users connect to both mobile network and wi-fi for internet connection in U.S. whereas the rest of 21 per cent access mobile network only. Meanwhile the Android users’ numbers are total opposites as 32 per cent users connect to both wi-fi and mobile networks, while as 68 per cent access mobile network only. The factor that leads to difference between the number of iPhone and Android users is the mode of payment plans and facilities provided by the service providers in the region.
iPhone v/s android:
According to Serge Matta, Operator and Mobile Solutions president at cumScore the difference in mobile wi-fi network usage in U.K and U.S clearly suggests that the factors responsible play very important roles that effect wi-fi usage. The interesting thing about the iPhone is that within g-wireless networks, IPhone outclasses and outperforms most of the androids in the market using n-wireless.
The question that arises is why iPhone users are drawn more towards wi-fi than Android users. The answer could be the factor that iPhone users simply connect more frequently and thus need to offload some of their data to wi-fi.
