Apple & Samsung tied for top spot in customer satisfaction study

Apple and Samsung sit at the top of the heap for satisfaction among smartphone buyers, but the Galaxy edges out the iPhone when it comes to 5G users.

Apple is habitually at the top of satisfaction surveys and analysis of hardware sales throughout the year. In a new survey from the American Customer Satisfaction Index, it’s something that Apple continues to do with the iPhone.

In the ACSI Wireless Phone Service and Cell Phone Study 2023-2024, the overall phone industry saw an improvement in customer satisfaction. The 2024 figure of 81 is a 3% increase from 2023’s result, and an all-time high score.

ACSI says that a lot of this is due to the popularity of 5G smartphones, which outpaces legacy technologies for customer satisfaction by almost 10 points.

On a phone brand basis, Apple saw its 2023 score of 81 go up by one point to 82 out of 100. Apple’s in joint first place with Samsung, which saw it move from a score of 80 to 82 in the same timeframe.
