51Degrees User Agent Analysis

Published on Tuesday, April 24, 2018

51Degrees User Agent Analysis

Popular User Agents detected since January 2018

What is a User-Agent?

Every time a website is visited a User-Agent is transmitted, containing information used to determine a user’s device properties. Inside each User-Agent there is a string of text that defines the components that are associated with that device.

Three key components identified in a User-Agent

These components feed into our device combinations database which, at 919,280*, it’s the largest.

  • Physical Device (Smartphone, Tablet, Smart TV etc.)
  • Operating System (Android, iOS, Windows etc.)
  • Web Browser / Application (Facebook, Chrome, Safari etc.)
Fig 1. Device Combinations key components

Example of how Device Detection works

  • Request for website received by website or content management system.
  • 51Degrees high performance device detection uses finger prints (HTTP headers including user agents) relating to over 919,280* device models, browser and operating system combinations to work out the type of device in less than 1 millisecond.
  • Your web site returns a page optimised for the precise screen and device type ensuring maximum performance and the best user experience every time.

Sample of popular User-Agents

The following section contains a sample of popular User-Agents that we have detected since the beginning of January, containing a lot of the well-known devices that were launched at or after Mobile World Congress 2018. They have also been chosen to reflect that the device token provided in the User-Agent is not always indicative of the smartphone model/name.

To see more properties then please use our User-Agent Tester, or if you’re on mobile you can see a snapshot of your device capabilities.
