Computing and Information Sciences is a peer reviewed journal that is committed to timely publication of original research, surveying and tutorial contributions on the analysis and development of computing and information science. The journal is designed mainly to serve researchers and developers, dealing with information and computing. Papers that can provide both theoretical analysis, along with carefully designed computational experiments, are particularly welcome. The journal is published 2-3 times per year with distribution to librarians, universities, research centers, researchers in computing, mathematics, and information science. The journal maintains strict refereeing procedures through its editorial policies in order to publish papers of only the highest quality. The refereeing is done by anonymous Reviewers. Often, reviews take four months to six months to obtain, occasionally longer, and it takes an additional several months for the publication process.

Abstract:: Quality of Experience (QoE) is not only related to network impairments and video signal quality. Recent studies have found that video content preference also has an impact on the QoE. To date, no research has reported the impact of device preference on the QoE. In this context, we investigate the impact of mobile devices preference on the QoE for video services. We evaluate the QoE of watching videos using mobile devices of different models, sizes, resolutions and densities. The experimental results based on subjective tests have shown that QoE is highly correlated with user preference on mobile devices.

Keywords: Quality of Experience; Quality of Service; Mobile Devices; Video; MOS.
