Chitika: Samsung accounts for 77% of phablet based mobile web traffic in North America
Chitika considers any phone with a screen 5-inches or larger, to be a phablet. Therefore, Sammy was helped by the inclusion of the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the Samsung Galaxy S4 in the data. As of early November, the 5.5-inch Apple iPhone 6 Plus, Apple's first phablet, accounted for 3.9% of the mobile web traffic among large-screened phones. That trails the 4% scored by the Motorola DROID Ultra. The Samsung Galaxy S5, responsible for 29.7% of phablet's mobile web traffic, had the highest percentage among individual devices. Among traditional phablets, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 was on top, responsible for 13% of the traffic.
Devices with 5-inch screens now make up 17.9% of North American mobile web traffic according to Chitika. That is up substantially from the 6.9% of mobile web traffic produced last year by phones with 5-inch screens or larger. That figure should continue to rise sharply. After all, it is easier to read websites on a phone with a larger screen.
And based on mobile web traffic from the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, AT&T apparently has the most subscribers using the phone. Galaxy Note 4 units branded with the AT&T logo were responsible for 28% of the traffic created by the latest Samsung phablet. That compares to the 27% belonging to the Verizon version of the handset. With 26%, T-Mobile was a close third. Sprint was dead last with 18%.
