"Move over iPhoneophiles: Android phone users are the biggest
data hogs of all according to a new report. Network management firm
Arieso conducted a "series of studies" in order to find out how
much data current smartphone users are downloading and how
often—while the iPhone 4 is definitely near the top of the
rankings, Android is king pig.
"Arieso used the old iPhone 3G as a reference point to create
its comparison benchmarks. In general, current smartphone users
have shown an increase of 130 percent in the number of times they
make some sort of data request, along with an increase in uplink
and downlink traffic of 130 and 40 percent respectively."
