Android App Traffic by Carrier and Phone

Traffic patterns seen on an Android app by wireless carrier and phone for the US market.

Android App Traffic by Carrier

It is a surprise to see Sprint generating the most Android traffic (35%), even beating Verizon Wireless (32%) and AT&T Wireless (18%). And, Cricket Wireless (14%) generates more Android traffic than T-mobile or Metro PCS.

Perhaps AT&T and Verizon are more focused on iPhones rather than Android.

Android App Traffic by Phone

No surprises here. As expected, Samsung Android phones generate over 65% of Android traffic. The surprise is for the second place. Huawei Android phones, at 21%, generate more traffic than Motorola or HTC.

Although the traffic patterns may be unique for this app, they may also represent wider trends in the Android market.
