I am placing this code  on top of my webpage  and
<?

$phonemodel=$_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'];

?>

then on the html section I am calling it like this below
<?php
 echo $phonemodel;
 ?>

my issue is that what returns is
Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_9_3) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/36.0.1985.125 Safari/537.36

and all i would love to get is the model of the phone....


any ideas?

Are these cisco phones ?
If they are cisco phones they give you additional headers to identify the phone model.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Using javascript you can use navigator.platform which will say "iPhone" for an iPhone, "iPad" for an iPad and so on e.g.:
<script type="text/javascript">
function getSpecs() {
    var v = "Vendor: " + navigator.vendor;
    var p = "Platform: " + navigator.platform;
    var an = "App Name: " + navigator.appName;
    var av = "App Version: " + navigator.appVersion;

    document.getElementById("specs").innerHTML = v + "<br/>" + p + "<br/>" + an + "<br/>" + av + "<br/>";
}
</script>
<button onclick="getSpecs()">Click me</button>
<p id="specs"></p>

Open in new window


and you can parse navigator.appVersion to get to common browser name & version e.g. Firefox v31.0

Pretty much every option you can use can be found at the very excellent http://browserspy.dk

Hi giancarlo barraza, if you want to be more specific with what model then you could simply use DeviceAtlas but it is NOT FREE.

You can check their site here => https://deviceatlas.com/

Actually, there is no need to install in server...

You can use their APIs but it is not free.  For Cloud API, they have free trial.
