“A majority of young people in a new [CouponCodes4U] survey disagreed with the jury’s verdict last week that Samsung violated Apple’s mobile patents. But most of them would still rather have an iPhone,” Cromwell Schubarth reports for Silicon Valley / San Jose Business Journal.

The survey “involved 2,125 young consumers between the ages of 18-30 who said they owned neither an Apple nor Samsung product,” Schubarth reports. “Finding such a group would seem no mean feat, given the ubiquity of mobile devices you might expect that demographic to own and the dominance of the two companies in that space.”

Schubarth reports, “When asked if they agreed with the jury, 55 percent said no and 41 percent said yes. Among those who didn’t like the verdict, 71 percent said it was ‘unfair,’ 53 percent said it ‘hindered’ creativity and innovation and 21 percent said it was an example of Apple taking over in the world of tech. Among those who agreed with the jury, 63 percent said they felt Samsung had stolen designs from Apple and 48 percent said that Samsung phones and products ‘were of lower quality and design’ than iPhones. About 78 percent said the ruling would not put them off purchasing Samsung products in future, but 52 percent said they would rather buy an Apple product over one from Samsung.”
