Galaxy Note 7 explosions are driving Android fans to the iPhone 7

September 13th, 2016 at 9:50 AM
Galaxy Note 7 vs iPhone 7

September might end up going down as one of the worst months in Samsung’s history, but while one smartphone maker suffers, another hopes to pick up the slack. CNET wanted to find out how the recall of the Galaxy Note 7 might affect future purchasing decisions of Android fans, and the results show that Apple might end up having one of its biggest launches in recent memory.

DON’T MISS: iPhone 7 review roundup: Boring? Exciting? It’s time to find out

Last week, CNET hosted two separate, yet identical, polls asking Galaxy Note 7 owners if they would keep their current phones, exchange for a new Note 7, get an iPhone or get a different phone altogether.

Of the 3,329 respondents, a whopping 48.5% said they’d switch to iPhone. On the other hand, 30.5% said they’d take Samsung up on its offer to exchange their Note 7, while 11.5% prefer to branch out from the Note and iPhone.


Frighteningly, 9.5% of the Twitter users who took the poll said they would just keep their current Note 7, which both Samsung and the federal government are against. There’s no way to know which, if any, of the respondents were serious, but if you’re really considering keeping your potentially dangerous Note 7… don’t.

Despite the removal of the headphone jack and the lack of any truly shocking hardware revisions, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are receiving rave reviews. The iPhone 7 will likely dominate the world regardless of any issues, but Samsung’s PR disaster is going to put an interesting spin on this year’s smartphone market.
