They don't plan to,they are mentally conditioned and programmed to,after all the uphone 5 is 'so cool','they need this' and 'this changes everything again again'

Am not apple phone nor use iPhone, but I ask my friends who uses the iPhone, they say it's the best, but they didn't try anything.
But for example on computer world I use apple, there quality is excellent on Computers, and I have tried windows, linux.
Linux is great, but apple is also amazing with support!
losing 11 % Iphone users is alot of people. It means that like 15 million iPhone users are fed up and going Android. Next year antother 20 % will leave.

never used iphone but an ipod 2gen once.
Do those 89% have another choice? ha ha ha... they are stuck with apple, if they move to another brand, they'll lose all of money spent on expensive games, softwares, covers, etc.
I think Apple just wait the time like RIM...
iPhone-users have invested so much money on apps and games that they simply cannot afford moving to Android or any other platform and then have to buy all the same apps and games again! The whole reason for app-Store is to prevent iPhone-buyers to ever be able to afford to leave Apple!
It is the same for me, I have invested too much money on apps and games for Android that I simply cannot afford to buy them all again if I leave Android, but as an Android-user I have a lot more choices and I am free to choose any of the many phones that use Android, and that is the reason why Samsung...-users feel less lojal to Samsung because they actually have many other compaines to choose between and still be able to keep their Android-apps if they choose a phone from LG or HTC or...
It is actually a bad thing that iPhone-users simply do not have any alternative at all, and must stay with Apple for life!
ley me say this. people with apple products dont know any better. wake up theres a world of better electronic gadgets out there. just step out of your apple bubble.
Just bought Galaxy s2, I owned four samsungs before, planning to go for Note.
100% i dont think that ill switch to other brands coz Iphone & Ipad are way ahead of all other brands
The Android manufacturers' figures are skewed down because Android users can easily switch between HTC, Samsung, Motorola, SE etc.
Apple has the iOS ecosystem all to itself.
The more accurate comparision is Apple's 89% versus Android's 60%.
Android or iOS, both has its own adv and disadv. I like them both, planning to get them both sometime, somehow
Everything else is inferior and they've probably bought into the ecosystem. Why would they switch?
Android still can't compare to iOS' user experience and smoothness.
well..apple is always good
Study conducted on UK, France, Germany and USA
Well what do you expect, Apple has a grea ecosystem. I don't see why any american born into the ios/mac world would want to switch over. similarly, any one born into the world of real pc's and actual smartphones would be disgusted by ios products. i could never use an i phone and i can understand why an ios user won't consider a switch.
Its surprising nokia has a 22% retention rate in the US for that matter. Thats impressive for a troubled company in a transition with clear path and no flagship.
What regions of the world were the survey conducted on ?
iphone is famous but not the best
I like Sony Ericsson android phones it's a lot better.
1) People usually don't like changes
2) Apple is awesome
