Data Discrepancies between Mobile traffic segment sessions and by device category sessions?

Just curious why the two numbers are different and what it may not be reporting or leaving. 2,000 session difference. Insight appreciated!

Hey Ben,

 

you're correct, the numbers should match exactly! Just replicated the report on my own account and the figures are matching exactly (attach screenshot).

 

Judging by the traffic volume (we're talking about <1M sessions here it seems) I doubt sampling is playing any role either (as you know applying Segments, reporting data hits the "raw data", not the pre-aggregates data).

 

The difference is minimal, but still i'm curious to know as well, why such discrepancy.
