You're trolling.

Android users spend more time browsing the web, yet Android's actual web usage share trails iOS by nearly 40 percentage points (iOS 69.0%, Android 26.5%.)  And the gap is widening.

Wasn't there a study recently that showed iPhone users spent far more money shopping (per user) than Android users?  If this study is to be believed, they spend about the same amount of time surfing the web, so that implies the iPhone users are far more efficient at finding things to buy.  And at buying them.  This may reflect different demographics of the two classes of user, or it may reflect ease of use differences (or ease of purchase differences).

It was tablets, as far as smartphones go they spend almost the same.

I seriously doubt many Apple users seek out Android forums just to ridicule their users like the Android trolls do here. Apple users are generally content with their decision. Android users are on a mission to try to stop the happiness.

Not surprising when it takes less steps to accomplish the same task on android. It always frustrates me when i want to enable/disable the wifi or Bluetooth on my iPhone. Or when i want to look at Facebook. The widgets in android allow me to configure it to give me a more productive view of my data. I can get there with the iPhone, but i often have to navigate in and out of apps to get each piece of data i want. I hope apple takes a hint and makes the flow in IOS7 easier.

I'm sure that's the reason iPhone users spend more time on their devices¡ 1oyvey.gif

My S4 battery lasts just as long as my IP5 did...about 24 hours of normal (for me) use....

Heh, that pretty much describes the month I had my Galaxy S3 before I returned it for the iPhone 5.  I turned everything off, installed a battery saver app, disabled multitasking, and barely used it and it was still nearly dead by the late afternoon.  I really wanted to try Android to get into developing for it, but I couldn't deal with it being my main phone.  My iPhone usually has at least 60% at the end of the day and I rarely worry about it, even on nights out.  Maybe the newer S4 and HTC One are better, but I'm under contract for another year.

Odd if Android users spend more minutes per day surfing the web because unless they set their user-agents to "safari/iOS" it isn't registering anywhere that measures mobile browser stats.

There are several possibilities:
1. Very few Android users surf the web, but the few who do spend many minutes.
2. User-agent shenanigans
3. Android users surf the web but visit a limited number of special interest sites not tracked by ad networks that report mobile browser stats

yep...I can just touch my wake button and get to widgets to get all the data i want at a glance without having to open individual apps...

I guess your friends do not want to hear you after 8PM.

No need. They argue amongst themselves.

Not surpised, I'm very comfortable on my iPhone 5, the LTE is blazing fast and the response time for everything is splendid.

And a great user experience means extra time "using" I'm confident....

ETA: A model breakdown would be informative: are people realy talking "more" holding a huge slab of a "phablet" up to the side of their head? I'd think as the screen grows so would the tilt toward internet usage. At which at some point it's dump the phablet and grab an LTE iPad mini.

sigh! allow me to elucidate: i was simply trying to say that spending that much time (60 minutes?) per day staring at a phone (and yes, by "one" i mean "a cellphone") is time that we're not using to talk with other people (to clarify: i'm including texting in my definition of not talking). i do realise that most people on this forum probably spend a bunch of time on their computer as well (as do i - no mobile phone, though), but this actually makes the problem worse (admittedly, it is perhaps only those who study societies, human interactions, etc. who do consider this a problem). and if these passive effects are not negative enough for you, i am faced, increasingly frequently, with the phenomenon of people who constantly check their phones while in a discussion with other people. this is not only mind-bogglingly rude (at least to people born prior to 1980), but also renders life far less efficient, as we are often forced to cover the same ground more often.

 

sorry if i was too cryptic earlier.

Nothing else needs said.

What company about what website? Please explain..... There seems to be a very balanced and diversified amount of articles here on this website.

Does name calling violate forums rules?

Staring adoringly at the "non-boring" home screen that isn't "stale", don't you mean.

 

That explains it, a group of people stare dumbfounded at home screens, almost mesmerised by the "freshness", in their feeble tiny minds they feel compelled to share this obsession, which they do so, regularly at every opportunity.

 

Although "large screens" seems to be the favourite flavour this week.

Perhaps that's because web browsing on a larger screen is a better experience.

You most likely had a defective unit. I use a Nexus 4 and I get the same amount of battery life as I did when I had a iphone 5. When I use my nexus 4 on stock I get the about +/- 30 minutes as when I had an iphone 5. When I use CyanogenMod 10.1 I get 3 to 5 hours longer then the iPhone 5.(But that should not count)

It was most likely a joke, if he wanted to be negative he could have said that this statistic proves you get more done quicker on a Android phone. May I recommend a vacation as you've become really grumpy.

Every usage chart since the first has shown this, to my memory. If you only ever read the lying shipment reports, you'd probably miss it. 1tongue.gif

Someone else said that (or maybe it was him); jokes based on lies don't often work well.

I can understand why more people use iphones over all android phones because the retina display is far more superior. The only android devices that compare is the htc one and samsung galaxy 4 which both fall short of the quality of the retina display.

Fall short in what regard?

I think you'd need to be more specific.

The display testing site seemed to give good measurements for high end Androids in the past year or so, and their methodology seemed reasonably rigorous.
