Sprint Says iPhone 4S Users Consuming 50% Less Data than Android Users
It’s no mystery that Sprint has been going through some network pains since the launch of the iPhone 4S. Most people suspect that the iPhone is to blame, and they would be partially correct. It’s true that the new customers that the iPhone has brought to Sprint probably has some impact on the network issues, but in terms of data it seems iPhone 4S users use significantly less data than Android users. How significant? Nearly 50% less data usage than Android.
Why is this happening? Well no one knows for sure, but I have some guesses. Android is geared towards multitasking much more than iOS. Many apps are constantly pulling for data, which Android users know all too well when looking at battery life. This constant pull for data makes Android phones much bigger data hogs than iOS. Of course this is just my speculation.
