The Galaxy S8 launch has been exciting to watch and also interesting to compare to Apple’s recent launches. Our recent mobile data report, Mobile Overview Report (MOVR), found that the Apple iPhone 6S is the most used smartphone in the world and that the Samsung Galaxy S7 is the most used Samsung in the world in Q1 2017.
According to a recent Google study, more than half of mobile visitors will leave if the website takes longer than three seconds to load. And one in two mobile visitors expect their page to load in less than two seconds. This is especially important to the e-commerce and advertising community who rely on image-heavy content to drive many of their conversions and sales. In fact,mobile sites which load in only five seconds earned almost twice as much mobile revenue compared to ads which had site load in 19 seconds.
It started, instead, to be about “getting the current [advertising] ecosystem working as effectively as possible.” The advertising community has stopped holding its breath for a mobile handset to arrive or relying on network providers to introduce new breakthrough technology.

I had not blogged for some time, but listening to a conversation that involved Ethan Marcotte and Karen McGrane the other day inspired me to hit the company web log with a new post. The reason for this is because I heard something that I consider big. Very big.
Ethan and Karen are two venerable authorities when it comes to the topic of Responsive Web Design (RWD). Plus, they have real experience with web projects, including mobile web, for large enterprises. This is why, when they speak, taking notice is often a good idea. The conversation on the status of RWD was no exception, because there was a point made by Karen, which Ethan subscribed to, that Adaptive Design is not really defined the way a lot of people say it is.
Before I get to the point, let me revisit what Adaptive Design means to many and how it relates to RWD.
For most authors who have embraced Responsive, Adaptive Design is the evolution of Progressive Enhancement and Mobile First. The adoption of those two philosophies, augmented with the ability to address a set of form factors through Media Queries and breakpoints, is the basis for what they call Adaptive Design. Media Queries are essentially conditional CSS rules that can be evaluated (client-side) based on media features, such as certain minimal screen-size intervals (the breakpoints) in order to tailor the UX for users of smartphones, tablets, and desktops.

This Black Friday and Cyber Monday saw a different level of mobile E-Commerce traffic than last year. Most notably, the average mobile engagement on E-Commerce sites was higher overall as well as beginning Black Friday peak traffic a few days earlier.
En comparación con los Estados Unidos, México tiene un porcentaje más alto de usuarios de teléfonos inteligentes que los EE.UU en un dos por ciento. Sin embargo, cuando comparamos la cantidad de uso de tabletas, México estaba ligeramente por detrás de los EE.UU en un dos por ciento. En general, México y los EE.UU tienen un factor de forma muy similar con casi ningún uso de teléfono de función básica (Feature Phone).
Con el uso de smartphones y tabletas en México, Samsung es el ganador. El smartphone superior en México es el Galaxy Core II Duos y la tableta superior en México es el Galaxy Tab 3 7.0. Esto demuestra una gran diferencia entre el mercado del EE.UU de smartphones y tabletas que prefiere a Apple en gran medida a través de Samsung.

As E-commerce, and more specifically, M-commerce, continues to grow during the holidays, it’s time to refocus your business strategies to target potential customers on different devices.
1. Higher Smartphone Usage
Compared to the U.S., Mexico has a higher percentage of smartphone users than the U.S. by two percent. However, when we compared the amount of tablet usage, Mexico was slightly behind the U.S. by two percent. Overall, Mexico and the U.S. have a very similar form factor with almost no feature phone usage.
2. Samsung Leads Manufacturers
With both the top smartphone and tablet usage in Mexico, Samsung is the clear winner. The top smartphone in Mexico is the Galaxy Core II Duos and the top tablet in Mexico is the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0. This demonstrates a large difference between the U.S. smartphone and tablet market which prefers Apple largely over Samsung.
