If you are an Apple fan and you simply hate Android devices then good news for you. Why? This is because the iPhone 5 has set new records and is currently beating Samsung’s latest flagship the Galaxy S3 when it comes to usage. Yes, in just three weeks the iPhone 5 generated more traffic than Samsung Galaxy S3 users (this statistic is according to mobile ad network Chitika Insights.
According to Chitika: “This shift in the mobile ecosystem is not welcome news for Samsung which has positioned its device as a direct competitor to the iPhone 5.” This suggests that with few exceptions to the rule, the majority of Android users don’t really use their devices in full and it is actually reflecting the fragmentation that is now afflicting our ecosystem.
When Google is building their Android apps, their developers are focused only on the high-end aspect of Android handsets. This only means that users of those devices are receiving a cut down smartphone experience. This then sums up to reduced consumer expectation of smartphones in general.
Chitika further added the following: “while optimizing online content for both devices is still the smart move for businesses targeting mobile consumers, this comparison emphasizes iPhone users still being the most active – and hence marketable – users of the mobile Web”.
Now app developers are more driven and is now more inclined in working with Apple platforms. This then results to creating busy ecosystem buoyed by regular free software updates which is known to work with all Apple devices.
For the longest time since the Samsung Galaxy S3 came out last June, Apple has been down with poor sales of their iPhone 4S. Now, the table has been turned as the new iPhone 5 is slowly pacing away from the once number one mobile phone (high-end category) the Samsung Galaxy S3.
