Say what? Forty-five percent of iPhone users say they believe Android phones are "more advanced" than iPhones, according to a survey of smartphone owners by OnePulse. Thirty-one percent disagreed while the rest were unsure, claims the company, which makes a mobile app that “connects people that have opinions with businesses that need opinions and want to pay you for them.”
The London start-up reportedly surveyed 1,500 iPhone and Android users via its app. As noted by the International Business Times, the results are "surprising" (and more than a little unbelievable to me) considering the iPhone's popularity. Apple sold 74.78 million iPhones in first quarter of 2016, the most it ever has sold in a quarter.
Apple’s smartphone is ranked as the No. 1 gadget brand on Facebook, with more than 400 million people expressing an interest. Cannacord research found that, owing to Apple's high profit margins, the iPhone accounted for 92% of smartphone profits in the first quarter of 2015.
So take the OnePulse survey with a grain (or two) of salt. And remember that 99% of all statistics are made up.
