Is Apple losing its luster among American consumers? In a recent survey by mobile research firm OnDevice, American respondents gave a clear indication of how popular Android is becoming to mobile users. In terms of satisfaction, four Android models have beat out the Apple iPhone 5. What’s surprising is that the most satisfying device is not even a top-of-the-line model.
The Motorola Atrix HD and Droid Razr M, HTC Rezound 4G and Samsung Galaxy Note 2 all got higher satisfaction ratings than the iPhone 5. With the Motorola Atrix HD being offered for free (on conrtact), this aligns it with Apple’s two-year old iPhone 4 in terms of cost-of-ownership. Does this signal that consumers want cheaper devices that don’t necessarily come with bleeding-edge tech and specs?
Here are a few takeaways:
The survey was done from amongst 90,000 plus Americans and about 50,000 plus smartphone users from the U.K. According to OnDevice, the level of user satisfaction may have something to do with meeting expectations, which may be one reason users reported to be satisfied with an inexpensive Motorola device, compared with the more expensive iPhone 5. Additionally, offering services like 4G do not only add to satisfaction, but can also be a good source of additional revenue.
Which smartphone model are you using as your main Android device, and are you satisfied with the brand and model?

I have the HTC One X and I hate it and I wish I would have stuck to Motorola.
Then please pass it to me, i will pay shipping? :P
I gladly would send you my one X if I had a working back up phone.

Where did Galaxy S3 come in?
Will be unfair to put the device in the same list. The phone is too EPIC to be on this chart sorry :(.
I forgot what exactly Android is…
I remember it is something rather old fashioned and traditional…
Anyway, I got myself a Lumia 920 to replace my Galaxy S3 :)
Are you CRAZY?
DROID razr maxx hd, I love it… Except the camera it’s okay though

Nexus 4 from Atrix 2
NOte 2/…..luvng evry bit..!!!
GNote 1 (US version). Still like it most of the time. Just recently had to replace the charging port but would really like to get (the official) JB installed so it will at least feel a little like a new phone. I’m torn between getting the SGS4 or Note3 when they come out. I like the S-pen even though I don’t use it as much as when I got the phone. I’d also like to have a tactile home button. Overall, I’m happy with the phone.
What a load of ****. So Where is The S3? And whats the difference between 8.23 and 8.57.
