There are many new smartphones with Android in 2019. In fact, many of the best have already been released. After two years with the same design, Samsung completely revised the Galaxy S10 series and gave it a new design for all screens with a punch camera that people seem to love. Then, the OnePlus 7 Pro was presented with the first true full-screen design and a selfie camera that appears on the top of the phone only when you need it. Of course, that's just the tip of the iceberg and there are even more exciting new phones that will be released throughout the year, including the first crop of smartphones with OLED screens that really bend so they can be made more compact.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the fence, there's nothing really exciting about the new smartphones in Apple's iPhone 11 series. The iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max will have improved triple lens cameras, which is definitely good, considering that Apple has lagged behind the market leaders like Huawei and Google. Beyond that, we're seeing new iPhone 11 models that look like last year's iPhone XS models and the iPhone X two years ago. And yet … despite how Apple's 2019 update for iPhone is shaping up, companies launched the smartphones of the iPhone 11 series, much more than exaggerations of Android's rivals. There is something in Apple's iPhone that people seem to keep away from, and people are constantly trying to figure out what exactly it is. There are many different reasons why people have to choose an iPhone on smartphones with Android, but a new informal survey that recently suggested that one of the most important reasons is something they probably would never expect.
A Redditor named after "jackharvest" posted earlier this week on the Android subreddit to share an interesting story. He works in IT in an anonymous company, and his team noticed something crazy: of the 500 employees of the company, only 8 of them chose to use the Android phone. All the others, all 492 of them, chose an iPhone on Android phones.
The IT team was so intrigued that they decided to issue a survey to ask employees why they chose the iPhone instead of Android. According to Redditor, more than half of iPhone users in the company gave the same answer. Did you choose Apple's iPhone instead of an Android phone because the quality of design and construction is much better? Is it because iPhones always outperform the most powerful Android emblems in real-life speed tests? Or it was because everyone prefers the simplicity and ease of use that iOS offers compared to Android.
No, it was not any of that. It was because they did not want to be "green bubbles," a reference to the fact that iMessage messages in the iPhone message application use blue bubbles while SMS messages are displayed with green bubbles. Forget all the great advantages that iPhones can offer, iMessage is the main reason why all these people wanted on iPhone. 98% of the employees of this company went with Apple through Android, and for most of them, it was mainly for a single service.
Now, the Reddit commentators were quick to point out that this phenomenon is unique to the United States and perhaps to some other regions, and correct. Cross-platform messaging applications from third-party application manufacturers are popular in the US UU., But the text messages and iMessage are still widely used. That is not the case in many other markets: SMS has been abandoned almost completely in favor of messaging applications such as WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Telegram and others. However, EE. UU It is one of the largest smartphone markets in the world, and it is crazy to think that the desire to be a blue bubble is still a decisive factor for the people here. Meanwhile, Google continues to fail in all its attempts to produce a similar messaging service for Android with any place near the block child we've seen with iMessage.
