Study says smartphone failures are more due to users than hardware

Cue the trolls who will call people "idiots" or stuff like that just because they aren't tech nerds like them.

I'm pretty sure no one was gonna do this but since you mentioned it I really hope they do.

It's the opposite actually, nobody is going to say it because I mentioned it.

PA, just to correct you. The stats for Samsung and Lenovo and others are amongst the android devices. So, for instance its 27% of 85% of the total devices for Samsung. Therefore 22.95% of the total issues are reported in Samsung devices and they make up 22.5% of the total market share(not just android market share). The same can be said about other android manufacturers in the survey.

I use Apple product quite extensively except for the iPhone and the experience is generally good. I also use Google ecosystem and Android device which is just as well.
The different is really dependent on individual preference on hardware and software design and its branding.

More Samsung phones sold, so yes it's going to be higher. If it was the other way around and 85% iphones sold then they would be higher.

That's not how this works lol. Morons like to think that's how this would work but you need to bring everything into consideration, including Samsungs majority of sales: cheap $60 smartphones lol.

Except the stats pretty much agree with him, after all iPhones are just cheap mid range phones selling at a premium. Samsung has 22.2% of the market shear, while Apple has 16.1%:
Pretty close to 15% of the returned phones being iPhones and 22.95% of them being Samsung's SmartPhone. So, despite most of Samsung's devices being called "cheap", their endurance matches the overpriced iphone...only thing premium is the price that fools pay for it.

Who has more stupid users, Android or iOS?
15. Unordinary (Posts: 1020; Member since: 04 Nov 2015)
Windows, since they bought that platform
But if you are looking for a serious answer, I'm sure iOS users are smarter, since they earn more money. Can't earn more money and be stupid.

Your comment proves that you are the most stupid, deciding who is smarter on the basis of what mobile platform they use or how much they earn.

That's nothing new really, he always proves his stupidity here and there. But I wouldn't say "most stupid", just plain stupid.

Having owned several, I have yet to experience any kind of hardware failure on an LG phone (knock on wood). Interestingly enough LG is not even on the list.
