I can’t say I’m surprised, but it’s always nice to see it in action. A report from The Telegraph in the motherland (Britain) has said that one third of trade-ins for the Samsung Galaxy S5 seen by website CompareMyMobile have been lodged by iPhone users. The most traded-in device in this period has been the iPhone 4S, followed by the Sasmsung Galaxy S3 in second place, and perhaps most surprisingly in third place is the iPhone 5S.
While you might be thinking that this is completely down to iPhone users just jumping ship to the Galaxy S5, that’s actually not the whole truth. Though the report stops short of saying it directly while talking about depreciating trade-in values, these trade-ins may have more to do with the fact that the iPhone does not depreciate in value as quickly as the Samsung Galaxy phones do. That said, whatever the actual reasons for people trading in for the Galaxy S5, people being converted to Android can probably be counted as a win regardless.
What do you think about this report? Do you think the Galaxy S5 should be as wildly popular as it is turning out to be? Let us know what you think in the comments.
