While Siri is the most exciting feature in the iPhone 4S and is one of the main reason behind the huge sales of the device but according to a latest report the ultimate Voice Assistant actually doubles your data usage.
Arieso, an organization which reveals latest trends in smartphone data use, has released a report recently claiming the large data usages by the iPhone 4S users. The organization studied the data usage of 1 million iPhone 4S users across the European Network in both urban and rural areas irrespective of the operator and revealed that data usage of the iPhone 4S in double as compared to iPhone 4 or iPhone 3GS.
This will have huge significance for the Operators as they are striving hard to bring new techniques to increase the speed of the network. And with the large sales of the device this will heavily burden the already saturated networks.
Verizon Wireless, the largest US Carrier claimed that it has sold 4.2 million iPhone 4S in the fourth quarter. While AT&T also lost the exclusive rights to the iPhone due to some complaints of call drop and network coverage issues. The report also bought an interesting data that the majority part of the data usage is due a very minute part of the subscribers. One percent of the high-use subscribers downloaded half of the data volumes.
The report is entirely based on European Subscribers and not of the U.S. Also the Data Usage of the iPhone 4 and previous versions of the iPhone 4 are compared entirely. The report does not claim that the data usage is due to Siri only, instead it compares the total overall data usage of the iPhone 4S users to the iPhone 4/ 3GS users.
While BlackBerry users reportedly used only 20 % of data that an average iPhone 4S does. But also BlackBerry devices does not have a Siri like Voice Assistant and also there are not much Apps available for the RIM counterpart.
