iOS users have been proven more likely to pay for content than Android users. Which makes sense as most Android users got their phone for free, which they chose because they couldn't afford the iPhone in most cases - indicating they possibly have less disposable income.

Plus the installed user base of iOS is massive - hundreds of millions. I think the last figure I saw was 365 million as of a few months ago.

Androids lack of tablet app support doesn't help either. Something iOS is very strong at.

I, sir, actually have owned an iPhone 4 and a 4S, as well as an iPad 2, and converted to a Galaxy S3 and Nexus 7 respectively only recently.

My reason for change? I just personally prefer Android now. And I wouldn't go back. I'm not skint, and I think your logic is flawed and to be honest an unfair stereotype of Android users.

What I have found recently is that iDevice owners seem to think they rule the world, and won't accept their cult fetish is in decline.

My perceived value of an iPhone or iPad has drastically reduced since the introduction of serious competition from key competitors such as Google/Asus and Samsung. What many people, including myself, have been doing recently is avoiding iOS and going down the Android route - not only because the cost can often be a few hundred pounds cheaper over the 24 month term compared to an iPhone - but we can no longer justify spending the extra considering the other manufacturers - including Nokia - have upped their game and have thus seriously dented Apple's sales.

Off the record, I have been doing an awful lot of Mystery Shopping recently and I mainly do assessments for phone shops including CPW, P4U and Tesco Phone Shop. Most often, in my briefing notes, I am asked to question the sales advisors on what phones are the best selling over the past few months. All of the stores, excluding one, have confirmed their main flagship handset - is the Samsung Galaxy S3. One of them quoted the 4S. None quoted the iPhone 5, and it was mainly the third or fourth best selling handset. Two years ago, of course, the iPhone (4) would almost certainly have been number one everywhere. Not any more.

Some people have opened their eyes, my friend.

P.S. Strange that you consider Android to have poor tablet support for apps, because my Nexus 7 has over a hundred apps installed and most of them have already been reformatted for larger screen devices? The only one I can mention off hand which isn't formatted correctly for tablets is the Speedtest.net app, which just runs in a small window in the middle of screen - now correct me if I'm wrong - but isn't that what happens when an iPad runs an iPhone-only app? And isn't it annoying having to press '2X' in the corner?

Some really solid evidence there... Actually you sound pretty defensive. I'm not clear on what Android is actually doing so much better than Apple. But I have seen the offerings on the Android store for tablet apps. They are mostly upscaled phone experiences. Apple on the other hand has a much stronger tablet tailored app library.

I'm sure you chose to leave Apple for your own reasons. But just because you might do a bit of "Mystery Shopping" - lol - Doesn't mean any of your word-of-mouth statistics mean anything really. Personally I would see it that the sales teams have been ordered to play down Apple devices. They sell regardless. More likely the profit margins are higher on the Samsung handsets, so SAY they are the best sellers and people will buy in because there want to feel part of the crowd.

If you do want to talk factual evidence - then you might be better to say look here.

But then again the research analyst pretty much underline this data with:



Hmmm but wait I'm sure you know more than he does because you are a "Mystery Shopper"... Not like he does market analysis for a living or anything?...

After all that I think Android and Windows are doing some great things. Just I personally couldn't use or recommend Android to friends and family siomply because their open door policy on apps is too susceptible to malicious malware and hacktards.
