The iPhone 4S uses twice as much data as its ancestor, Arieso concluded in a new study. The network data optimizing firm saw double the data use of the iPhone 4 and three times the use of the iPhone 3G. Owners of the newer phone even used more data than iPad 2 owners, who were consuming 2.5 times as much as the 2008-era Apple baseline.
Android users are much more data hungry than their iPhone counterparts, Arieso said in a new study. Using the iPhone 3G as the baseline, Android was often more demanding for traffic in both directions. The Samsung Galaxy S would upload as much as 126 percent more data where an HTC Desire would often download 41 percent more.
