iPhone 5 ranked fifth in user satisfaction, behind four Android powered devices.

These are the findings from our latest device satisfaction study, which is one of the largest studies of device satisfaction, measuring 320,000 mobile and tablet users across six countries, including the US, UK, France, Germany, Japan and Indonesia.

The results were surprising, with the much anticipated iPhone 5 only ranking fifth in device satisfaction in a study of 93,825 US mobile users, behind four Android powered devices. In fact US mobile users reported a higher satisfaction with their Motorola’s Atrix device (8.57), an Android powered device at a lower price point, than Apple iPhone 5 users (8.23).

Although Apple created one of the most revolutionary devices of the past decade, other manufactures have caught up, with some Android powered devices now commanding higher levels of user satisfaction.

What’s really interesting is the 4G impact - the top 5 devices for satisfaction in the US are 4G capable devices, and users with a 4G subscription reported a higher device satisfaction (7.76) than those with no 4G subscription (7.28).

Device satisfaction also has an impact on network operator satisfaction, which also showed a positive increase (+0.48) amongst 4G subscribers. 4G users also have a higher monthly mobile bill. In contrast, in the UK where there is only one 4G network operator EE, the iPhone 5 is under less pressure from competitive devices, ranking second in user satisfaction.

However in the study of 52,140 UK mobile users, the HTC One X scores higher (8.47) does score higher than Apple’s iPhone 5 (8.21).

As 4G opens up to more UK cities in 2013, it will provide opportunities for both mobile network operators and handset manufacturers, to increase satisfaction, device usage and loyalty.
