According to a study, Android users are more likely to buy a device with the same operating system, over iOS.
The old and beloved war between Android and iOS its not a new one. Sure some will agree while others will disagree.
According to a recent study published by the Consumer Intelligence Research Partner (CIRP) in the United States, Android users are more loyal to their operating system than iOS users.
This trend has been taking place since 2014, the last year in which those of the bitten apple sang victory in terms of loyalty of its user base.
In simple words, throughout the whole of 2017, 91% of the American users of Android that changed the mobile, did it to another with Android.
On the iPhone side, 86% of users who switched terminals did it to another iPhone. The victory by Android is not very broad.
Part of the strategy that brands use to keep you “tied” to your system is the sale of services, such as Google Drive and iCloud, and even the famous “ecosystem” theme, where, at least in the United States, iMessage is the platform of main messaging, so that it is difficult for many to leave from there.
Have you experienced the change of operating system? From what to which and why?

Bustos’ American-made flag bill passes in the House
In 2015, the Federal government spent $4.4 million on foreign-made American flags. Almost all of these flags, which were used by the Department of Defense, came from China. Illinois Congresswoman Cheri Bustos was appalled when she learned this from a veteran. Under current law, flags only need to be made of 50 percent American-made materials.
Bustos’ bill would require American flags purchased with taxpayer dollars be wholly produced in the United States. Yesterday, that bill passed the House. Bustos has been working on this issue for years; and this is not the first time her measure has made it out of the house.
HR 3121 will now go to the Senate to be voted on there.
