Or, the majority of those are iPhones for small hands....
Another take on the data is that I doubt a majority of Phablets are owned by women, for the same reason (small hands).

More men would own a flagship android device than woman.

Right... I get surprise when I see a woman with a Galaxy Nexus, or maybe the S3 in hand... They usually go for the S3 Mini, midrange galaxies, iPhone or a Sony

I'm kind of amazed at all the mysoginistic comments. I knew the calibur of PhoneArena's commenters is pretty low but yeash.

But that doesn't make those women smart. Still you need to supplement them with your ideas.
