Smartphones including the iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy SIII and HTC Sensation XL are consistently consuming more mobile data than tablets, according to a new report by mobile data analytics company Arieso . It’s the third such annual report the company has compiled — gathering data via its own network monitoring technology. The firm looked at the data demands of more than one million distinct subscribers over a single, 24-hour weekday in November 2012, gathering data on 125 different devices in total (it only includes devices with more than 1,000 subscribers each to ensure statistical validity). The data was taken from a tier-1 UMTS network in Europe (so does not factor in LTE/4G usage as yet). Out of the top 10 most data hungry devices (excluding dongles) six were smartphones, three tablets and one a ‘ phablet ‘ (aka larger sized smartphone) — while tablet users placed 4th, 8th and 9th.
