Thanks for your input Foomandoonian. However, your view that "Samsung will inevitably leapfrog Apple in mobile web use" is not that inevitable to me. With Samsung's current "volume" of phones on the market, they're customers aren't getting on the net in the same ratio that iPhone users are. So it's not inevitable at all that they'll magically surpass iPhone users in web usage anytime soon.

I appreciate your zeal Samual, but the report is about the statistics not being conclusive, not about the "experience" you enjoy with your Android device.


Hey its seems to be true , samsung web experience is way better than safari , for example if you get a link of a website from a friend on the ipad , ios forces you literally forces you to use safari, on a samsung you can use whatever browser you like !!!!!

Two additional thoughts:

1. StatCounter stats can vary significantly from other analytics tools. What StatCounter really measures is visitors to sites that use StatCounter (an impressive 2.5% of websites). It is possible that patterns may exist that the kinds of people who use Apple devices tend not to be the kind of people who use sites that use StatCounter. That's entirely unfounded speculation on my part, but seems entirely possible.

2. Nonetheless, if this is a trend and not just some anomalous fluctuation, it seems to me that Samsung will inevitably leapfrog Apple in mobile web use at some point. I don't see how it matters though. So long as the experience on iOS is great, I'll be happy.

Let's see if Samsung somehow owns or has contracted or otherwise paid this firm!

No not by a long shot! Sadly some people will eat it up and say how Samsung is better than Apple and blah blah blah...just more press trying to make Samsung look good...you would think since Samsung "sells" more phones than Apple they would then "leapfrog" Apple but that's not the case!
