What are the Personality Characteristics of iPhone vs Android Users? (Infographic)

Published by on Aug 16th, 2011, 10 Comments

Yeah – there is a bit of a war brooding out there. And its not Microsoft vs Apple. Its the battle of the mobile OS’s. So take a look at this infographic that details the personality characteristics of users of iPhone and Android. Hunch is a pretty great site that makes recommendations based on things your personality and things you already like, so they have a pretty strong database to draw these correlations from. Here are some interesting findings:

  • iPhone users are 100% more likely to be Mac users. What would be great to know if these users first had Mac before the iPhone, or afterwards? Did the iPhone create a halo effect for the users to buy more Apple products?
  • Android users are typically late adopters, in fact they are much less technical according to these results. I would have honestly have thought it to be other way round, with Apple‘s focus on dumbing down user interfaces, and the large Android hacker base out there who like to customize their phones…

If you cannot see the infographic below, click through.

Yes, we are aware correlation is not necessarily causation.

    I don’t quite agree with this infographic, nevertheless its an interesting read

  • Confused?

    Apple Users: 18% more likely to be women…. That watch Planet Earth and eat Clementines and ginger snaps… Obviously this is a US survey :P

    Up until the ‘Media’ section, I would say that this info-graphic is spot on. From the ‘Media’ section onwards, not so much. 

    I would actually be curious to see what an Info-graphic like this would be like for South African users, or simply from the perspective of a developing nation.

    I think it might be very similiar, except of course for US focussed facts like political choices. Fact is Android is becoming a very broadly adopted operating system, so it should attract people from all walks of life.
