Report names LG's phones as least reliable

But firm's users are 'tech boffins'

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

LG, Sony Ericsson and Samsung mobile phones have been fingered as some of the most problematic handsets available, according to a poll of users.

Opinium Research – on behalf of website Moneysupermarket.com – quizzed just over 2000 British adults and discovered that more than one third of LG owners – 34 per cent – had experienced an unspecified problem with their phone in the past 12 months.

Sony Ericsson came in second, with 33 per cent of owners reporting problems in the last year, followed by Samsung, Nokia and Motorola with 25, 24 and 22 per cent, respectively.

The research also delved into the personalities of mobile phone users and concluded that Nokia owners are “handset simpletons”, while Samsung’s clan is full of “snap-happy photo geeks”. Despite recently launching the 12Mp Idou, Sony Ericsson’s users were still branded “music nerds”.

LG owners are apparently “tech boffins”, according to the report. James Parker, Manager of Mobiles at Moneysupermarket.com, said: “It may not be a coincidence that LG owners suffer the most faults as they are often the most advanced phones.” ®
