New Report Finds Android Smartphones Crash a Lot More Than iPhones

Android smartphones might look like they’re faster and smoother than the iPhone on paper, but in real world use, that couldn’t be further from the truth. A new study has found Android smartphones crash a lot more than iPhones, and Samsung’s are the most unstable.

Blanco Technology Group measured the number of failures on Android and iPhone devices during the first quarter of 2016, and found that while Google’s platform had a failure rate of 44 percent, Apple’s platform had a rate of just 25 percent.

“Android’s failure rate was especially high for devices in Asia, which accounted for 55% of Android device crashes globally, up slightly from 50% in Q4 2015,” reports Business Insider. “This was followed by Europe with 35% and North America with 27%.”

Samsung smartphones, which have been notorious for bloatware in recent years — but are getting a lot better — are the worst for failing, the report found. The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S5 have failure rates of 7 percent and 6 percent respectively.


When it comes to iPhones, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 5s have the highest failure rates at 25 percent and 17 percent respectively. These numbers seem high compared to those for Samsung’s devices, but of course, there are a lot more Androids out there.

By highlighting that Android is almost twice as unstable as iOS, this report will likely concern Google and its hardware partners. “Crashing apps were detected on 74% of Android devices,” adds BI, “with communication and social apps being the main perpetrators of app crashing.”
