Samsung phones User-Agent strings list

Looking for User-Agent (UA) strings used by some of the most popular Samsung phones? In this article you’ll find a useful list of UAs which you can use for testing purposes in any environment.

Which Samsung phones are the most popular

Before you actually start testing your mobile setup using User-Agent strings, you may be wondering which Samsung phones are actually the most used around the world and thus the most useful for testing.

Industry analysts, such as IDC or Kantar, may not be helpful in this case because they mainly focus on shipments of new phones. What’s important for many online businesses is not really how many new phones are sold each quarter but which phones are currently used the most often for web browsing. DeviceAtlas statistics are more useful given that they’re based on real web traffic to a global network of partner websites.

According to the latest DeviceAtlas Mobile Intelligence Report for Q2 2016, Samsung was the most popular device maker in many local markets, including Germany (46.51%), France (39.09%), Italy (45.49), and Spain (35.78%). The Samsung Galaxy family is enjoying the largest user base in Q2 2016 in most countries we analysed, especially Samsung Galaxy S5. Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy S4, and Samsung Galaxy S3.

User-Agent strings for Samsung devices

The User-Agent string is one of the HTTP headers meant to introduce the device requesting online content from the web server. The UA contains multiple product tokens which in theory should help to identify hardware and software of the visiting device. The reality of User-Agent strings is that the information is often misleading which is what makes home-grown device detection solutions inaccurate and ineffective. It also causes problems in terms of detecting iPhone models.

Here you can learn more about detecting devices by parsing User-Agent strings.

The following example User-Agent strings can be used for testing or any other purpose in your organisation. These UAs were the most popular for selected Samsung smartphones in 2017.
