After Apple unveiled the iPhone 5, Toluna QuickSurveys ran a survey to gauge how well the new smartphone was received by consumers. According to the study, Apple’s iPhone 5 has been received positively overall.

76% of iPhone owners plans to upgrade to the iPhone 5


The survey involved 2000 participants from Americans. Some of the findings include:

  • 58% participants were impressed by the new look.
  • The extended battery life was the stand out feature of the new phone followed by the enhanced processing power and speed.

  • Current iPhone owners are more likely to upgrade to the iPhone 5 with 76% saying they would definitely upgrade.
  • Android users: 32% say they would buy it and 33% say they definitely would not buy the iPhone 5.
  • 56% of Blackberry users would give up their current device for an iPhone 5
  • Negativity around the iPhone 5 include; the lack of wireless charging (24%) and not having micro-USB capability (also 24%)


This is bodes well for Apple. The Cupertino company will have competition from the four months old Samsung Galaxy SIII and the Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820 smartphones set to release later this year. Apple’s iPhone 5 does not have some of the functionalities seen in the other smartphones such as wireless charing and NFC communication. However, this has not dampen consumers’ demand for the iPhone according this survey.
