Data usage of smartphones

Some of you peeps might remember Ericsson as being Sony's former manufacturing partner in the smartphone business.Before their divorce,the two combined on models like the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, which might get the memory center of your brain flowing. What brings Ericsson to mind is its annual mobile study. This year's release included a chart showing that Android users consume more data on average, than users of other platforms.
The numbers show that Android phones guzzle an average of 2.2GB of data each month. In comparison, the average Apple iPhone consumes 1.7GB of the sweet stuff each month,while the average Windows Phone uses 1.4GB of data. Consultant Chetan Sharma, who pointed out that high-end Android phones average about 4GB of data usage a month .
When you stop to think about it, there are a number of common sense reasons for Android models to eat more data each month.Sharma notes that the larger size of Android screens means that larger files are downloaded with more pixels. What Sharma didn't point out ,is that with these lovely HD screens, Android users might also feel more compelled to view a movie or a television show on their device.Thanks to the GDR3 update, this is something that Windows Phone users will start to feel depending on the model they own. Right now, only the
Nokia Lumia 1520 has a large screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution on the platform.The oft-rumored, but never announced Nokia Lumia 929 will also offer 5 inches of FHD goodness for Windows Phone users when and if it is ever released.
