The Blancco company develops tools that are used, among others, to diagnose smartphones and to clear data from mobile devices. Therefore, the data collected by their platform can be used to carry out quite an interesting statistical analysis. The last report covering diagnostic tests carried out in the first quarter of 2018 suggests that Samsung smartphones may be more emergency than iPhones.
On internet forums you can find many threads describing problems related to particular smartphones. Often we are dealing here with a description of faults that concern a wider group of customers who purchased a device from the same production lot. If a man looks well, he will find this type of threads on almost every flagship and other popular device. However, have you ever wondered which smartphones are the most emergency? The latest report prepared by Blancco shows that the most problems with their smartphones have owners of the iPhone 6, whose failure rate is as much as 22%. In the case of the iPhone 6S, this ratio is also high (16%). However, other iPhones are much less emergency. Therefore, the failure rate for all tested Apple devices was 15.2%.
Samsung has the largest failure rate among Android smartphones
Samsung took an infamous first place in the report prepared by Blancco. The failure rate among all tested smartphones of this manufacturer was as much as 27.4%. The second place belongs to Xiaomi. Here, the failure rate is at 14.2%. It should be remembered that these numbers refer to all devices of a given manufacturer. You should also keep in mind the fact that producers of Android smartphones have devices in their portfolio from various price ranges. Therefore, the increased failure rate may be due to cheaper devices that are more prone to failures.
The Blancco report should not be targeted by people who intend to buy a new smartphone. The data collected by the company comes from diagnostic services and companies dealing in the professional preparation of smartphones for re-sale. Therefore, the information presented in the report should be a valuable hint for those seeking a used smartphone. This means that an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6S from a “second hand” can be a risky purchase. However, the high failure rate of these models mainly results from problems with batteries in the used iPhones announced earlier this year. It turned out that Apple deliberately slowed the work of iPhones 6 / 6s with used batteries, so that the sudden increase in energy consumption would not cause the device to turn off. Therefore, in the first quarter of this year, many Apple smartphones could go to websites where problems with the battery were confirmed.
