Theoretical and empirical data now confirm that Samsung’s smartphones have registered a higher failure rate than Apple’s iPhones. According to a recent study titled “State of Mobile Device Repair and Security,” iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s are more likely to fail than any other iPhones.
However, Samsung lags behind in performance as it has registered a higher failure rate than the two poorly performed iPhones.
Samsung Phones Has Higher Failure Rate Than iPhones
The security and data erasure firm Blancco released a report this month, and it reveals that Apple’s iPhone 6 stood staggering 22% in failure rate; and next to this is iPhone 6s, which registered 16% failure rate.
Thankfully, other iPhone models registered their failure rate in single digit. The report also includes an iPad Air 2, which stood at eighth position with 4% failure rate in the list of ten models.
The report came as a surprise to many industry insiders as iPhone 6 was the highest selling model in the world for Apple. Within 24 hours of availability, Apple saw more than 4 million pre-orders of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus; this exceeded the supply available.
Interestingly, more than 10 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus devices were sold in the first three days.
Samsung failed to show any remarkable achievement in this competition. Overall, Samsung mobiles registered 27.4% failure rate, which is 5% more than Apple’s highest failure rate.
Citing the report, experts say Bluetooth is the major performance issue in iOS devices. Other notable problems are Wi-Fi, headset, mobile data, and receiver.
For Android, performance is the biggest issue. Camera, microphone, battery charging, and speaker are other challenges Android devices need to cope with.
Notably, the OS adoption ratio among Android users is relatively poor compared to that among iOS users. Currently, 74.3% of iOS devices are running iOS 11 and 17.7 percent run iOS 10. On the other hand, over 50% Android users using Nougat 7.0, which was released in 2016.
Time and again, iOS devices have proved their supremacy over Android counterparts. The effective combination of software and hardware enables Apple to beat its competitors in the global market.
