IPhone tops smartphone survey

November 24, 2010

A recently released survey by ChangeWave Research of 1,212 smartphone owners showed that iPhone 4 continues to “outperform the industry in terms of customer satisfaction.”

Results were percentage ratings – by maker – with Apple iPhone receiving (77%); Motorola (71%), HTC (63%); Samsung (45%) and RIM (44%). Paul Carlton, Vice President of research for ChangeWave said:

The iPhone 4’s exceptionally high Very Satisfied rating of 84% for 32GB model and 78% for the 16GB confirms that despite the controversy surrounding its initial launch, the iPhone 4 has been extraordininarily well received by its owners.”

This research also found that a third of people who had purchased other smartphones said they would have bought an iPhone if they had been available at the time they wanted to purchase. Almost 40% of people owning Motorola phones said they wished they had an iPhone.

Such demand for Apple iPhones mean consumers are going to have to hurry whilst stocks last. O2 still have iPhones available visit our buy online webpage or visit the o2 website

It is possible to buy refurbished iPhones at more competitive prices. Refurbished handsets have been checked out to make sure they meet factory specifications. Buyer Beware as the checking follows a point system, the better the product on offer, the higher points are awarded. They can range from a 10 point system to a 100 point system and if the handset has been checked and ‘certified’ it means it is in a ‘like new’ condition. The phone is then tested before repackaging it and offering it for sale.
