Using your web analytics How to use your analytics data effectively with the lists.
Device Matrix

Your audience analytics data may provide a list of top device sources for your website traffic. However, this data may not be easily accessible or accurate, if your website doesn’t have enough traffic. Additionally, this data will not include upcoming devices, and might be heavily biased towards devices in which your website works well, leaving out the others.

In case you do have significant traffic, we recommend combining top devices from your web analytics with the lists above.
