A third of users might not look like a tremendous amount on paper. But Android, and indeed iPhone, users are often excessively loyal to their mobile operating system of choice. This can be broken into a simple case of familiarity, having paid a particular amount of money in one ecosystem, or being a diehard fan of some features the other platform doesn’t possess.
A 33.1% swing for Android users into even considering a switch to an iPhone is notable as before-mentioned.
While questioned why they’d think a swap form Android to the iPhone 12, 55.9% of 680 respondents answered it was the more extensive software support that iPhones propose that would fuel their decision to leave from the Android to Apple. The fragmentation in the Android smartphone platform and the absence of consistent user interfaces and software version means software support for Android devices is arguably a bit of a jumble.
Take Samsung devices. For example, there is usually a significant wait for Android’s latest version being pushed out and for those devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra from making the new version.
Some 48% of respondents lauded better privacy security as one of the possible reasons to reconsider a move to iOS. That’s hardly shocking given Apple has been aggressive with promoting its approach to privacy.
And in third place, nearly 37% of respondents promoted a smaller form factor as another reason to change. Small Android phones now seem few and far within, whereas Apple is rumored to hold a 5.4-inch iPhone 12 mini in the works. Users would likely lap up such a handset after a small phone they can use with one hand.
Additional causes mentioned for possible Android to iPhone 12 exchanging were more favorable prices, 5G connectivity, better features, and a better UI. Suspectedly, a lot of Android users would debate about the features of Android customization over Apple’s locked-down UI, and how phones similar to the OnePlus 8 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S20 FE come with a series of high-end features for competing prices.
Nevertheless, there’s no uncertainty that the iPhone 12 is forming up to be an extraordinary range of phones; it’ll have the mini mentioned above, as well as a couple of 6.1-inch handsets and the 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max, at least foretold by the leaks so far. All four phones are expected to use a new flat-edged design implicative of that in the iPhone 4.
And all the handsets will use the powerful A14 Bionic chip located in the iPad Air 4. The regular iPhone 12 handsets will use a set of rear cameras, like the iPhone 11. The iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max will use a triple camera array with a LiDAR sensor.
The iPhone 12 is set to be revealed on October 13, so Android fans excited to change sides only have several days to wait.
