On Device Research

“Although Apple created one of the most revolutionary devices of the past decade, other manufactures have caught up, with some Android powered devices now commanding higher levels of user satisfaction.

— OnDevice Research marketing manager Sarah Quinn, on the iPhone’s failure to hit the number one slot in a poll conducted among more than 300,000 smartphone and tablet users in six countries. In the U.S., Motorola’s Atrix HD was number one in user satisfaction, followed by the Motorola Droid Razr M, HTC Rezound 4G and Samsung Galaxy Note 2. The iPhone 5 weighed in at number five. Apple did better in the U.K., where it was number two, trailing the HTC One X. (CNET)
