Nearly 44% of UK iPhone users want to own iPhone 5

Friday 14 September 2012 | 09:11 CET | News
About 44 percent of existing UK iPhone users say they want the Apple iPhone 5, according to Usurv research conducted immediately after news of the product release was announced on 12 September. And 20 percent of all smartphone users said they wanted to upgrade to the new iPhone without needing any further information about the product. But users of the iPhone's main competitor, the Samsung Galaxy, are mostly staying loyal, with only 5 percent saying they want to switch to the iPhone 5. Nearly 19 percent of respondents find larger screen as the most popular feature on the iPhone 5, while 17 percent found the higher speed internet access through LTE as most appealing feature of iPhone 5. But 39 percent said none of the new features appeal to them. Over a quarter of the consumers thought that the iPhone 5 had been over-hyped without anything exciting or innovative.
