Pudding's data-driven analysis of women's jeans pockets compares 32" waist jeans for men and women from a variety of brands and uses various common cellphones as a benchmark; the conclusion will not surprise you.
Bottom line: "On average, the pockets in women’s jeans are 48% shorter and 6.5% narrower than men’s pockets."
If you want to know which jeans are least terrible, by all means, check out the interactive chart on Pudding that lets you compare brands. But they're all terrible. Really, really terrible.
