The survey of 854 middle-class consumers in China, including 594 in tier one or tier two cities and 260 in smaller cities found that 53 percent of survey respondents who own an iPhone switched from Android.
On the other hand, only four percent of Android phone owners in the survey switched from the iPhone to Android.
The average age of these respondents was 35.
Some 32 percent of Android users surveyed who plan to buy a new phone in the next 12 months indicate they will switch to the iPhone.
Also, some 54 percent of all survey respondents who plan to buy a new phone in the next 12 months will choose the iPhone. Samsung, however, ranks a close second as the device respondents believe they will buy next.
