Here’s another reason to start using Android phones if you’re not already: a report by Blancco Technology Group has found that iPhones and iPads have higher failure rates than Android smartphones and tablets worldwide.
The report, dubbed “State of Mobile Device Performance and Health”, examined devices during Q3 of this year showed that iPhones and iPads sold by Apple have failure rates of 62 percent worldwide. In contrast, Android device failure rates currently stand at 47 percent.
If that wasn’t bad enough the report also states that iOS is far less stable in terms of apps – apps running on iOS crash three times as often compared on Android – 65 percent versus 25 percent on Android.
So which phones have high failure rates? For Apple, the study found that the iPhone 6 has the highest failure rate in the bunch at 13 percent, with the iPhone 6s following right behind at 9 percent, with the 5s at third place. For Android, the highest faiure rate is the LeEco Le 2 which fails at a rate of 13 perecent, followed by Xiaomi’s Redmi 3S and Redmi Note 3 at 9 percent each.
