Never one to go public with facts,Google Chairman Eric Schmidt thinks everyone is switching from iPhone to Android because the latter is more intuitive; like when PC users switched to Mac. Stuart Dredge:
Many of my iPhone friends are converting to Android. The latest high-end phones from Samsung, Motorola and the Nexus 5 have better screens, are faster, and have a much more intuitive interface. They are a great Christmas present to an iPhone user!
So, larger is better? Is there a single benchmark where an Android phone is faster than an iPhone 5s?
What about usability? Shane Burley:
Harvard’s Human Factors in Design lab looked at the usability of different smart phones to see what ones favored best, and both Apple’s iPhone and Microsoft’s Windows phone beat out Android and the Blackberry in ease of use.
There’s a reason Schmidt was kicked out of Google’s CEO spot, and demoted to Chairman. He doesn’t know when to shut up. How does Schmidt account for Android losing marketshare to iPhone in the U.S., Japan, and other developed countries where buyers are more discriminating?
