If you are a long-time fan of Apple products and you own an iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S, you know that not only this smartphone is great in the style stakes, but it also delivers as a great multimedia device. This is probably why Consumer Intelligence Research Partners have found that numbers of Android and Blackberry owners defecting to iPhone are continuing to increase. In February of this year, the figure had been reported to be 29%, however the latest figures released, estimate that the number of American iPhone owners who were previously owners of Android or Blackberry phones has now jumped to 38%. Nearly three quarters of those (73%) had chosen to buy Apple’s latest smartphone release, the iPhone 4S. Sales of the 16GB iPhone 4S were most popular, taking 50% of the totals sales, followed by 34% buying the 32GB and just 16% buying the 64GB. The higher price tag of the 32GB and 64GB options obviously prohibit the move over to these and services such as iCloud are also reducing the need for such high levels of internal memory. So the question then is, why are people switching over to iPhone from Android? Is it because few smartphones fail to match the dual processors speed and efficiency; or the 8 megapixel camera’s quality; the half a million iOS apps available from the App Store or perhaps it’s the constant cycle of innovation offered by Apple either through its hardware or software. Software examples include iCloud, which is a great advance and allows owners of Apple tech to synch their emails, contacts, events and more across their full range of devices, whether it’s an iPhone, iPad, Mac or PC. Another software development is Siri, which is thought to have swayed many busy Android users to move over to iPhone. Siri acts as a virtual assistant and allows you to free texting online, schedule meetings and make phone calls using your voice and it can even talk back. It can use the information in your calendar and contacts to help you with some of your regular day to day tasks and its dictation tool is great for writing messages, browsing the internet and so much more. In addition to this, the iPhone has probably benefited from all those people that although owning an Android phone, decided to buy an iPad when buying their first tablet computer. So although price may have prohibited them from buying an iPhone or maybe they thought an Android phone was as good as the iPhone; the iPad has given them a taste of the both the style and function that Apple products can give them. If you own an Android or BlackBerry smartphone and would like to follow their lead and change over to the iPhone or if you currently own an iPhone 4 or 4S and would like to raise some money to put to the much awaited, forthcoming launch of the iPhone 5 in the Autumn, why not look at mobile phone recycling.
