iPhones have topped a leading smartphone customer satisfaction poll, with buyers reserving particular praise for the handsets’ user friendliness.
Apple mobile phones scored 811 points in JD Power’s latest survey, with consumers who use the phones for non-work purposes lauding the handsets for their ease of operation, features and form factor.
Mobiles from LG were rated second with a score of 776, while BlackBerry manufacturer Research in Motion's phones came in at third with 759 points.
iPhones were also deemed to be the best smartphones by business users, who awarded them an overall score of 801.
The study’s findings come at a time when consumers are holding out hopes for an iPhone price war in months to come, after Orange and Vodafone were granted rights to sell the latest edition of the phone, the iPhone 3G S, in the UK.
Prior to the agreement of the deals, O2 has been the sole UK carrier for the last two years.
