How many android users switching to Apple?!


So, we kinda like Apple. Could you tell?


We really like it when other people like Apple too, although anyone can do anything they like. Obviously. And Androids and Samsung and stuff are cool too. and stuff.


But, we just thought we’d share this recent study with you. According to Consumer Intelligence Research Partners, Apple has been particularly successful in getting Android users to swap over to using an iPhone.


The study, conducted over a year between June 2012 and June 2013, shows clearly that 20% of iPhone buyers had previously owned an Android powered smart phone. Winning, Apple?



Twenty-six percent of iPhone buyers were updating to Apple’s phone from a basic or feature phone, while 43 percent had already owned an Apple phone and were upgrading.




On the other end, though, only seven percent of Samsung phone buyers were switching from Apple devices.


Looking only at customers who had switched brands, fully one third of Apple’s new customers had previously owned Samsung devices. Only 11 percent of Samsung’s customers came from Apple.







We like to think that the clash of Fanboys and Fandroids is a little bit silly and tech forums especially can be more than a little bit scary when it comes to the insults flying around between them.


But still.



Go Apple!
