Interesting read for those who like stats. Looks like Europeans are more attracted by American phones and IoT services.

Being a stat nerd & a European I think you have done a 1+1=3 (though I think you know that already ):wink:

Yes In Europe we like IFTTT

Yes if you use IFTTT DO button you’re more likely to have an IPhone (that says more about IPhone users the IFTTT users

But I think you might be stretching your conclusion to say IoT Europeans on IFTTT use IPhones as the two conclusions are independent of each other

Android is eating Apple

But that said IFTTT are also very selective about there numbers as they have taken no refernec to population size when they say IFTTT is dominated by Europe. As they just gave proportions of based on the adoption of

based on the adoption of IoT Channels among IFTTT users

Thats both of them in Switzerland.

Statistically, sure. Just not because Android is better, but only because cheap Androids are being offered instead of dumb phones. You can’t even get a dumb phone anymore even if you wanted to. :sunglasses:

I am surprised to see this coming from you, although cannot argue with the latter part of your reasoning.

Not necessarily CHEAP androids that make this happen, sure there are ridiculously cheap androids that aren’t worth owning… but the fact that the OS is open and available and can be offered at a REASONABLE cost compared to competitors makes this possible. Plus, an iPhone is one device - and it doesn’t fit all. Android can be anything. Reasonable, Top of the Line, Cheap, Gieger Counter Built In, Water Proof, 20k MaH battery? Sure… whatever you want. Not saying this makes it better, but it explains why android has far more devices in the wild and always will.

That’s the flaw in this kind of logic. Market share should not be measured in units sold, but rather in amount of money spent on particular goods and services. iOS market share in units sold maybe 1/2 of Android’s, but considering that average Android phone cost 1/3 of iPhone, Apple still comes on top as far as market share in actual dollar value. And that’s what really matters.


(Never Trust @bamarayne) #7

Disagree. Wholeheartedly.

That is the perspective of a stock holder, but still not complete. As the stock holder must also take into consideration the following, long term.

The perspective of the consumer considers which eco system will provide the most benefits for their use cases. Volume is part of that equation. Volume can and has effected the strength of ecosystems. The consumer does not care how much the purveyor of that system makes.

Really?

In the US, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Plus account for 16% of all US smartphones sales, while the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus took 14.6%.

Yeah, that was before half of them have exploded. :wink:

Opps

looks like we kicked off the old war again.

Ok here’s my 10p’s worth
I am sitting here with 2 phones one IOS (5) one Android (Nexus 6P)

I have one phone I use by choice (Nexus) & one I use by necessity (employer supplied Iphone)

At the end of the day I can’t see the attraction in the Apple device, it feels as clunky and outdated as the day it was supplied.

I know it’s a preference thing but Android appears to be moving forward and IOS backward.

But hey if you like your IPhone keep it I’m sure it does what you want it to do.

If you ask me, I don’t think the volume effected the strength, but rather affected it. Wouldn’t you agree?
