According to a report from Blancco Technology Group – a mobile device diagnostics firm, the failure rate for Android devices was 44 percent, compared to 25 percent for iOS devices. The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S5 had the highest rates of failure among Androids, while the iPhone 6 and iPhone 5s models failed the most out of all the iOS devices that failed in this specific test.
Are these fail rates surprising to you considering how much Android and iOS devices dominate the market? Some might say that the high rate of failure occurs because of the lack of competition in the market. Whatever the reason – the bottom line is that as great as modern smartphones and tablets are, they aren’t the most durable technology and they certainly aren’t cheap to replace or fix.
