iPhone 4 Kicked Out of Top 5 in Best Phones Chart
With all the hype over Apple Gear such as the Apple iPad 2 and the iPhone 4 one would have expected the iPhone 4 to command a high ranking when it comes to mobile phone popularity charts: however, apparently the latest survey by uSwitch sees the iPhone 4 16GB drop out of the top 5.
According to an article over on ITProportal, according to the survey conducted by uSwitch, Android dominates the top 3 slots with the HTC Desire, HTC Desire HD and HTC Wlidfire. The uSwitch Tracker ranks the top handsets by way of live searches and sales.
Bringing up 4th place in the chart is the BlackBerry Curve 8520 and 5th place goes to yet another Android smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S, pushing the iPhone 4 out of the top 5 to sit in sixth position.
Thus it would appear that Android is beating the iPhone in the mobile space, and could be one of the reasons why Apple is considering putting out a cheaper version of their iconic handset. According to the figures Android devices now account for fifty percent of the most popular smartphones on the market.
According to uSwitch communications expert, Ernest Doku, “The competition is taking a huge bite out of Apple’s market. And, with over 800,000 deals currently giving away a smartphone for free, it’s easy to see how consumers are being lured away from the iPhone.”
So have any of our readers been lured away from the iPhone and have purchased an Android device instead? Do you think the iPhone is finally losing its grip over the mobile space to Android handsets, or do you believe the iPhone will always be tops in your view?
