A new survey from Barron’s has hit claiming that 48% of Android smartphone users plan on buying another Android device at some point, while 17% are interested in an iPhone, and 34% are unsure.
The takeway is that only about half of Android users are 100% sure they will stick with Android, right? The only problem with this is that the survey is very limited in scope since only 2,000 people were surveyed, and not all of those surveyed were even Android users from the sound of it. Millions and millions of Android users exist out there, yet somehow we are supposed to believe that this survey is accurate?
Even if this number proved correct, that means that 4 out of 5 Android users are either sticking with Android or undecided. Other interesting things pointed out in this survey include that RIM users that were surveyed pretty much all wanted a different type of phone, with only 2% staying loyal to Blackberry.
We’ve all heard about the rumors of a Facebook phone, but if this survey proves accurate, only 7% of the respondents were interested. In contrast, about 51% of the survey reviewers said they’d give a Kindle Fire-like Amazon device consideration.
You can check out the full survey, but basically these are the big points made by it. Again, I find that the survey’s limited number of reviewers makes it pretty hard to take at face value.
What about you, think there is any truth to the claim that 1 in 5 Android users are interested in ditching Android for the iPhone?
