Apple iPhone Users vs. Google Android Users

If iPhone and Android users had their own reality TV show, then iPhone users would be the highly educated and ultra-refined star of the show.  Meanwhile, Android users would be the low-brow, dimwitted neighbor who frequently stumbles into dangerous situations yet somehow manages to unintentionally save the day with his zany antics.  At least that’s the portrayal one would get from checking out a new infographic released by Hunch Monday afternoon (see below).

In an amazing survey that asked mobile phone users everything from their political affiliation to their favorite breakfast cereal, the study found that iPhone users are more likely to be extroverts, with good education, and have higher incomes, while Android users are more likely to be pessimists, and have incomes below $100k a year.

The survey polled more than 15,800 people and interestingly, the majority of respondents were iPhone owners.  This contrasts with the overall smartphone market, which has been largely dominated by Android.  So, apparently iPhone users are more likely to respond to online surveys, too.

Some other interesting finds: Android users are 80% more likely to have only a high school diploma, whereas iPhone users are 37% more likely to have a University degree.  And Android users are more likely to have never traveled outside of their native country, while iPhone users are more likely to say that they’ve visited more than five countries.

The differences really start to become clear when you compare little every day favorites, like TV shows, movies, and books.  Android users are more likely to watch shows like “How I Met Your Mother” and movies like “X-Men: First Class”, while iPhone users prefer more sophisticated programmes.

Even snacks aren’t safe from iPhone elitism.  While Android users prefer to nosh on mini pizzas and popcorn, iPhone users prefer to nibble on mixed nuts and yogurt, while washing it all down with a glass of Italian red wine.
