Study shows Apple iPhone to be 300% more reliable than Samsung models

0. phoneArena 22 Feb 2013, 12:02 posted on

A study done by FixYa, a community based online tech support site, shows that the Apple iPhone is the most reliable smartphone on the market based on a scoring system; Apple score showed the iPhone to be 300% more reliable than handsets produced by Korean based Samsung and 2500% more reliable than the phones produced by Motorola...

It's only pointless because Samsung didn't win, if they'd won you'd be having a huge "O" right about now. Sooo shhhhhhhh...

Dude, shut up. If you knew anything about me, you'd know that I am NOT the greatest fan of Samsung phones. I hate Samsung. With a passion.

Weren't you the guy praising me last week in that Apple article where I had a rant about the Android fanboy that was going into every single Apple article and posting useless nonsense?

On to the point on hand, I fail to see where "poor app ecosytem, preinstalled apps, lack of new features & no customizablity" have anything to do with the RELIABILITY of a smartphone.

Now go take your 9th grade, mean girls, Android bashing on to someone who gives a couple f**ks.

Also, the person at BGR that called themselves doing some "math" was incorrect. It's 187%, not 300%.

This statistic pulling is worse than the ones they put on product labels in grocery stores.

"5x more better than the leading brand!"

Fine print. 5x better in viscosity.

If they weeded out all the $2 dollar prepaid Samsung phones, the iPhone would get slaughtered.

Need more tears from Samsung fanboys.

In the meantime, you Samsung fanboys can read about dying S3s everyday from SDS that is still happening.

450+ thread in XDA.

Lol, Nokia gets dinged on a reliability for a "Poor App Ecosystem".

Fake. My family and I have several Apple products (iPhones 3GS, 4, 4S, Ipad and Ipods) and almost all broke or had serious flaws. My Samsung S i and S III continues to run without problems.

Oh man..too bad your family didn't participate in the study. Samsung would have been #1!

More reliable, yes.

4 times more reliable, I don't think so.

I wonder if they are separating just brands or actual devices model...

They should compare reliability between an iPhone 5 and a Galaxy S 3, for example...

I would like to see how Sony fares here...

I don't think Sony would be anywhere in the results bro. Since they don't make either phone trolol

Ok fine but i don't care as Apple costs me 100% more than Samsung in my country ... and still keeps me jailed to itunes crap ... and how does it matter when i have to replace my phone e very 2-3 years. Good apple sponsored propaganda but at least now they have started seeing Samsung in same light as apple .. thanks to billion dollar ad campaign initiated by Apple in COURT :)

So this isn't a reliability report so much as a "things people bitch about" report.

What a load of horse sh.it.

That's kinda what I got out of it. It looked like a reliability report until they mentioned Moto being low rated for bloatware. I have never heard of bloatware taking out a phone before.

So I'm under the impression that people send their phones in for battery life? That sounds like consumer error to me.

Let's see here...

1) Pro-apple article written by Alan, a known apple fan.
2) I've never heard of "FixYa" before. Ifixit, sure, but these yahoos.
3) apple users aren't much for self-diagnostic and repair. They call apple or go to an apple store.
4) Samsung makes models across the spectrum. Of they make a cheap device with lots of problems, and its compared to a relatively decent apple product (4s, perhaps), the accuracy is severely compromised

Summary: this article is baloney, and while I expect more from PhoneArena, it's par for the course for Alan.

^5) most of these "issues" aren't real issues. Much like how Ford gets dinged on reliability for customers not knowing how to use Sync or MyFordTouch, which reporting agencies would give the same weight as an engine failure from a reliability standpoint.

This fanboys back and forth is really getting old. Its one of the reasons I'm coming here less and less. Everyone needs to quit kidding themselves that their respective OS has no faults, and even then realize that what one person considers a fault may not be the same as other people do.

Plus I don't get this need to have everyone else use what you're using. Why do you care if someone uses something else? Every person has their own taste and their own requirements with the things they buy. One of the perks of these kinds of things is taking them and making them your own. So why try to persuade everyone else to get what you have ? Half the time all you'll be doing is forcing a square peg into a round hole.

Point is, if YOU are happy with your decision, that's what matters. There's no need to try and get others to choose the same as you so you can feel better about your decision. Because if that's what you are doing, you've probably made the wrong decision and should try something else.

No bias here...but 90% of Apple users DO NOT go to websites like this or utilize the internet to solve their own problems...they blow up Applecare and expect them to solve the issues instead...
