Investigating an issue on a website, I see an entry in the Apache log with this User Agent setting:

Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; Android 8.0.0; SAMSUNG SM-G955U Build/R16NW) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) SamsungBrowser/7.0 Chrome/59.0.3071.125 Mobile Safari/537.36

How can it be both Samsung and Apple? How do I map this to an actual browser type and version?

Perhaps they are running Safari on Android https://safariforwindowspc.com/safari-web-browser-android-download/

    I am not sure you saw it, but if you scroll the agent string to the right, it is safari mobile.
