Very engaged: Xiaomi's users downloading 26.5 apps per quarter
That's double the rate of App Store and Google Play
This line of extrapolation comes from Tech-Thought's Sameer Singh, who set out to examine a vague quote by Xiaomi's CEO Bin Lin.
Lin stridently claimed that "Xiaomi's customers are twice as active on the mobile web as those of other manufacturers" - and after running a quick analysis, Singh found that Lin wasn't wide of the mark.
According to his data, Singh found that Xiaomi users are downloading 26.5 apps per quarter per device, while iOS and Android users are averaging 13-15.
Singh arrived at his figures by working back from Xiaomi's earlier announcement that it has seen 1 billion downloads from its app store in the past 13 months, which has led it to become one of the top five app stores in China.
With 17 million active users in the app store, Singh calculates that it sees 5 million downloads per day which then works down to 26.5 app downloads per quarter for each device.
