Wow, here's a shocking piece of news to start the day with:
According to a new survey, 44% of Verizon users (Android and BlackBerry) are planning to switch to an iPhone.
While I can understand the BlackBerry users, the results of the Android users are a bit of a surprise. I always said that iPhone is superior to Android when it comes to end user experience (consistent, clean, better looking), but 44% is a lot.
(I know, I know, this is the point where all the techies are thinking: "what is he thinking!? You can't do this and that with iPhone! Android is superior…" I'm sorry to say: I'm a techie myself, I appreciate the advantages Android has over iPhone in many areas, but I still think that for the average user, iPhone brings a much better user experience. And user experience is really a lot in smartphones).
Reasons to switch, according to the survey are: user interface (60%), web browsing (58%), media capabilities (51%), memory (43%), and camera (41%).
Weird, I thought Android has some models with better camera, memory and similar media capabilities, but as I said, the user experience is probably a factor everywhere.
If this is indeed what we are about to see in the next few months we are facing a change in smartphones market and yet another jump to Apple, this time, in favor of Google and the 'gang'…
