  • iPhone loyalty rates down to 8-year low, survey claims

    BankMyCell made an error in their press release - they actually found that iPhone loyalty has in fact increased by 2.7% from 2018 to 2019.

    This resulting article is thus completely inaccurate as the 2018 figure of 91% loyalty is from a different company (CIRP) with a different methodology and the 2017 figure is from Statista. Only the 2019 figure of 73% is from BankMyCell's own data using their own methodology.

    CIRP in fact reports that iPhone loyalty in 2019 is actually at an all-time high of 91%

    But the kicker is that if we DO look at BankMyCell's own data for 2018 (as shown in the graph below), it shows that iPhone loyalty has INCREASED 2.7% instead of decreased.

    In other words, this whole story is completely bogus with BankMyCell showing two completely different results with the supposed drop only appearing based on a faulty comparison with different survey company results and methodology.

    If they had stuck with their own data for 2018 and 2019, the article would be all about how iPhone loyalty had increased since last year.

    Completely Crazy.

    CPU and GPU speed is irrelevant?!

    Ahem, I think most commentators would agree those metrics are in fact the most important when comparing phone performance and on every single one the iPhone obliterates Huawei (and every other Android OEM).
