Different browser versions between Detailed and Basic stats

Postby deriv-wurfl » Thu Jun 09, 2016 9:05 am

For this UAS: "Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; Android 5.0; SM-G900F Build/LRX21T) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/48.0.2564.95 Mobile Safari/537.36"
The browser versions are different in the detailed and basic stats:

Basic-
"advertised_browser": "Chrome Mobile"
"advertised_browser_version": "48"
Detailed-
"mobile_browser": "Chrome Mobile"
"mobile_browser_version": "30"

Should be 48 for both. Please could you explain why they differ? :)

Thanks

Hi Luke,

The capability you will want to refer to is the `advertised_browser_version` as it reflects an accurate portrayal of the browser version. The `mobile_browser_version` capability for this device ID is set at 30. However, when the detection occurs, the advertised virtual capabilities will run a series of calculations and return a specified browser version accordingly based on the given user agent string.

Feel free to let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks,

Aaron
