This week saw the release of Google’s newest smartphone, the Pixel 8a. It is a less expensive model of the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro, which were released in October. With this device, the tech giant hopes to take market share away from Apple and Samsung.

Although the gadgets and their AI-powered software might attract new clients, according to data from the Statista Consumer Insights survey, Google’s greatest challenge might be retaining its current clientele, as noted by Statista’s Martin Armstrong.

More than half of the Google users polled in the US indicated it was probable or very likely that they would switch to a different smartphone brand when given the chance. However, as this infographic demonstrates, this is a genuine issue that the business needs to address rather than a sign of a fickle client base in the smartphone industry as a whole.

The converse was true for Apple, the brand loyalty monarchs in the electronics industry: 50% of their users stated it was very or extremely improbable that they would switch brands.

Although Samsung can’t quite claim that percentage, a strong 44% of respondents stated they intend to stay with the company going forward.

As previously reported by GreatGameIndia, data from the German Federal Office of Radiation Protection showed that three Google Pixel phones were listed in the top 10 for emitting radiation among popular smartphones.
