The full list: Apple (76 percent), Samsung (58 percent), LG (37 percent), Nokia (33 percent), htc (30 percent), Sony (24 percent), Motorola (22 percent), and BlackBerry with just 21 percent. Furthermore, it's easier for Android users to jump between handset manufacturers, because of familiarity with Android across all platforms, while iPhone users have a more difficult time trying to migrate.

 

A survey recently conducted in the UK found that 60 percent of Apple iPhone owners have what can be described as a "blind loyalty" to the company.

 

The smartphone market has exploded in popularity over the past few years, but is expected to see slowing growth over the next four years, according to research.
