Test and Measurement: The role of devices in user experience

Test and Measurement: The role of devices in user experience
MATsolutions' insight:

 

When measuring mobile network experiences, it's important to keep the capabilities of the mobile device being used in mind. For example, lower-tiered phones typically do not have the same network technology as the higher-tiered ones. To have an idea of the different networks and how they perform on each tier, OpenSignal did an analysis of device performance and focused on three largest manufacturers: Apple, Samsung, and Huawei for 3 months in 72 countries. This article details their findings - how do you think each manufacturer performed? 

 



Article Excerpt:

Devices play a crucial role in user experience of a mobile network. OpenSignal looks at differences in performance among Apple, Samsung and Huawei devices.
