According to the survey, Apple’s best rating this year is related to the fact that iPhones 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max be more satisfied with battery life these devices than in previous generations.
However, when it comes to the satisfaction index based on the individual assessment of the different smartphone models, Samsung’s gadgets outperformed iPhones. In this sense, devices Galaxy Note 9 (85 points), S9 + and S10 (both with 84 points) were the ones that most pleased consumers this year.
Among Apple smartphones, the iPhone XS Max was the best rated, with 84 points; the most recent models, on the other hand, obtained 82 points (11 and 11 Pro Max) and 81 points (11 Pro) – which may reflect the breach of consumer expectations, who were waiting for more news (mainly in the models flagships).
