the question is:
I go with a Mobile Phone with following parameters to my web site:
System: OS Android 2.2.1
Browser: Dolphin Mini 2.0.1
The thing is what Piwik 1.2.1 says:
Browser: Android 4.0
Auflösung: 932x372 Dual View
Is that normal?
Yes, its “normal”. i guess, to detect the Browser, Piwik use a simple UserAgentParser. It would be better to detect the Browser by “browsecap.ini”. The result would be more exact. But so is it for the moment
Is that the reason too for the resolution?
Right, we use the lightweight UserAgentParser instead of browsercap.ini.
For a broader range of mobile phone detection, see Mobile Analytics · Issue #1274 · matomo-org/matomo · GitHub
See request for a better device detection (Tv, console, versions for OS, mobile device) in piwik! this ticket: Better Device detection (mobile, TVs, consoles, etc.): New “Devices” report? · Issue #3612 · matomo-org/matomo · GitHub
So is this the reason why all Android users’ browsers are recognized as “Safari 4.0”?
what is the exact user agent that is causing trouble?

There is no specific user agent to blame as almost every Android device’s built-in browser (>90% of 220k+ visits so far) is tracked as Safari. Alternative browsers (Opera, FF) are recognized correctly. A few entries in my database show an “AN” in the ‘config_browser_name’ row, but they are old records.
I initially thought this was a bug but Google told me that it seems to be a common habit of Android devices to fake a Safari browser. At least they’re all Webkit based.
