From the survey, it appears that the tech giant Apple may be falling behind when it comes to consumer satisfaction. According to Sarah Quinn from OnDevice Research, even though Apple has built up one of the most groundbreaking gadgets for the last ten years, other device-makers have already picked up with the pace. Some manufacturers have Android-powered gadgets that is now dominating on higher levels of consumer interest and satisfaction.

Regardless of the low rankings of iPhone 5, outlook is not that bad for Apple. Like for example, in the U.K., Apple’s iPhone 5 tagged second place with HTC One X for the first spot.
One interesting note to take into consideration is that Apple got top spots for overall consumer satisfaction compared to other mobile devices like from Motorola Mobility Holdings Inc., HTC Corp., Google Inc., Sony Ericson and Nokia Corporation.
