Samsung released its flagship of this year a few months back, the Galaxy S8 and the S8 Plus, which featured a drastic shift in design compared to its predecessor.

According to the data collected by CIRP for the quarter ending June, more Android consumers are making a shift to the iPhone than ever before in the past 12 months. Previously, the firm's report for December quarter suggested that only 15 percent of Android users were shifting to the iPhone, while the loyal customers were upgrading to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

This derives another stat related to the older iPhone models like the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s, which accounted for a total of 19 percent of total sales. These numbers are down from a hefty 34 percent, which means there has been a drastic change since the same time last year.
