People Just Love the Apple iPhone; Android, You Listening?

Have you realized that smartphone customers are on a buying spree pocketing iPhones, and giving the Android phones a miss? A study initiated by Changewave has pointed out this contrast, challenging the common belief about Android devices over the iPhone.

The study has forecast customers’ potential to buy a smartphone within next 3 months. As many as 46% are planning to go for an iPhone, while 32% will opt for Android. The remaining ones have plans to buy Blackberry and Windows phone devices.

iPhone had been dominating the arena till September 2009 when the powerful and Motorola Droid debuted. The arrival of the Droid gave Android the deserving significance. But iPhone returned to hold the highest demand and maintained the trend with the iPhone 4 that was released a year ago. Current estimates show the demand for the iPhone 4 could drop with the upcoming September launch of the iPhone 5.


By the end of 2010, the number Android and iPhone subscribers were almost equal. But things changed dramatically when Verizon customers got to choose the iPhone over Android. Since then Motorola started losing its dominance. It may be recalled that Moto’s share of buyers dropped by a third to eight percent now.

All the compasses point to Apple’s good in future. Apple’s cloud computing option, iCloud, one of the USP for customers who bought any kind Apple product has come about as a charmer option for Apple fans.

If we look at the smartphone satisfaction statistics, Apple emerges as a winner here too. A 70% of iPhone users are satisfied with their phones, but Android only could satisfy half of their owners. RIM comes quite last in list with just 26%, followed by Windows with 27%.

    Actually I’ve been a Nokia fan for a long time, but after seeing so many successes of Apple and their iPhones, I think I would give it a chance in the near future 🙂 Anyway, thanks for your great work!

    I’m really agree with this study result because Apple is the first to bring us this beautiful technology and dominates the markets for a long time before others come and try to be its rival, despite of that Apple dominate so far the market with its beautiful iPhone and other Tablets and i think Apple will still dominate the market at least for the 10 coming years.
