Mobile device types

Hey,

when I collect data on which devices access our page, I get the following report: Analytics.jpg

Can you tell me what exactly "Media Player" and "Others" refer to? Or if its possible to further distinguish/analyze devices that are classified under "Other"?

Thanks in advance!

The mobile report here is a breakdown of things you can expect:

Other is actually Desktop.

Media Player is something like a Sony blue ray player.

Settop box is a mini tv box like a Kodi box.

If you breakdown other by :

OS

browser

resolution can give you more info on its sub categories.

Hi jakobw14462603

The "other" row denotes traffic from desktops/laptops.

There are reports under Visitor Profile > Technology that provide info on browsers and operating systems that you may find helpful.

Hi guys, I have a question regarding the mobile device type report, too.

where can I see the classification rules/definitions regarding the devices? it should be something like a list of OS, browsers etc. which define if it is a mobile phone or a tablet or a media player. I assume, that desktop (other) is calculated like this: 100% traffic minus mobile traffic minus tablet traffic minus Media Player minus top set box equals (other).

have a great day,

Hi -

The User Agent is used to determine what the visitor is on (i.e. mobile, desktop, tablet....) when accessing your site.

The most common Media Player device is actually the iPhone Touch.  if you break down by device name you'll see that detail as well.
