14% of buyers would purchase the next iPhone, demand at all time high

0. phoneArena 23 Jul 2012, 09:00 posted on

Despite all the leaks and rumors, we don't really know what the next iPhone (iPhone 5?) will look like. After all, Apple does a great job at keeping its products a secret until the moment they are announced. However, there are hordes of people who would most likely buy the next iPhone anyway, as a study conducted by 451 Research indicates...

ardent1 (comment 5) and Veigald (comment 28) are right here. A sample size of 4000 people out of a population close to 300 million would probably give you a margin of error of close to +/- 2% with a confidence level of those results at 95%.

Assuming a perfectly random sample of people, of course.

actually, apple runs for quality and money, on the other hand google made android because it wanted to make money from a different section of the society, apple wants to give everything for the people who buy apple products and make money from them.....google wants to make money by making android run on more number of phones, apple is like a BMW in phones and tablets, some people want the luxury of the BMW while the others say that they can get all the features of a BMW in a cheaper car so why should they spend more? at the end of the day, its all about your choice so these statistics hardly matter

iPhone is more like Toyota Corolla to me. They sold in millions all over the world from a very reliable company.

every stupid android fanboy who comes to this page and reply to me should know that i have 4 android devices at home and this comment is from the nexus 7, so shut up.......if u don't want to here the facts,then you are not supposed top come to this page which is all about apple....the starting price of the iphone 4s is $649 in usa and in many countries like india, england etc etc its over $800, the phone bills of locked iphones are usually 50% higher than the other phones....why do u think the developers love apple? because apple users made them rich,they pay for the apps....android users don't even buy $0.99 apps

Agreed,alot of these so called surveys come from a very limited size and diversity of people. Anyhow we dont need any stats to realise that armies of ifans will buy the next iPhone no matter what it is even if it does turn out to be an iPhone 4$$. They will also be buying the iPad 'mini' even if they have only bought the 'new' ipad

I'm no math major but, curious as to what the other 86% said; probably that, they were NOT planning on buying the next iPhone.

I think that who the the surveyor is is just as big a question as who the surveyed are. So... who is 451 Research?
Well, they're a for-profit company that provides analysis for their clients through a subscription service. Basically, their results are sponsored and probably by Apple itself. And, just where are their offices located? Well, they would be New York, London, Boston, Washington DC, and San Francisco. Hmm, aren't those all some rather well known iPhone strongholds?
Long story short: Apple paid for these numbers.

Indeed Rotten Apple bro, Sad these people don't know the real truth, Apple making billions by selling fragile and product with less features, also not to mention about the article few days ago which showed how high the SAR value of iphone really is... all they care about is having an APPLE iPhone its kinda like a status symbol for them... They dont really care about features... Just ask a ifan to send a photo from the camera album through blue-tooth, they will give you stupid excuse saying that "apple iphone blue-tooth is so advanced that it does not work with other phones" LOL wow how stupid that is!!

Someone actually said that to me.. he clicked my photo and i wanted him to send to my phone through bluetooth because i dont want to waste 2-3 MB of my data (already had hit data usage) and he gave me that reply when i asked him why dont just send from blue-tooth of your iPhone 4s because its easier and quicker lol

I would say "I can't do that sorry, but I can upload it to the cloud as this is 2012." Its only in your imagination where "iFans" snort out "My phone is too advanced hur-hur-hur" as a response.

Some people just don't like the cloud. When things are in the cloud they are really not yours & are literally up for grabs. If anyone get access to the cloud then they have access to everything in the cloud.

Also if the cloud goes down ever there goes your stuff. Personally I am not down with the cloud. I am an Android user so if anyone had NFC I can just beam the data to them. Or if I like I can use blue-tooth also.

It's good to have all avenues available not what Apple dictates you can have.

Some people have legitimate data caps & use blue-tooth as a way to share without using data. To some people blue-tooth is VERY relevant even in 2012.

okay, honestly, i have never witnessed a situation in which someone even wanted, muchless needed to transfer a photo over bluetooth
i am not saying that it doesn't happen and there aren't people who would use it
i'm just saying when people say that ios is pathetic and android is so much more powerful
when i ask them what things they can do on android that they can't on ios
while they do come up with good lists, they all strike me as very niche things that most people would not do very often if at all
and for the record, the 4s has outlasted the gs3 in every drop test i have ever seen
android people don't know the truth either
they are just as blind to their tribalism as are the people that purchase apple products just to be like everyone else

just shut up, i agree that you don't like people who buy an iphone but please don't compare them with bieber they are not that bad lolzzzz.......anyways,it has been found that apple users are more generous than android and windows users,they donate more money than the others, maybe thats one of the reason why they pay more money for the phone and also the apps
