Android users more promiscuous, while iPhone fans more educated, survey says
AYI.com, an online dating site that integrates with Facebook in order to help you find the love of your life, released a survey that gives us some insight on “which mobile brand's singles are the most desirable” - iPhone users or those who sport and Android smartphone. The website examined the profiles of some 13,690 of its mobile users in the USA in order to compare their demographic characteristics, which treats us to some more than curious findings.

It appears that iPhone devotees are 17% more likely to be contacted first by another user of the dating site. Meanwhile, Android enthusiasts are 12% more inclined to initiate contact with someone else, which makes them, in AYI's own words, the more promiscuous users. Interestingly enough, the survey also makes it clear that Android users on AYI are somewhat older – 42% of them are between 45 and 60 years old, whereas 67% of iPhone singles are under 45.

Why is it the case that Android users are more indiscriminate and iOS users are more desirable?


You are also 30% more likely to earn under $60,000 a year if your device of choice runs Google's mobile OS, in comparison with iOS users. The latter seemingly have a much better financial income, as 83% of them bring home more than $150,000 each year. But what's even more interesting is the fact that iPhone aficionados drink and use drugs twice as much as their Android peers. Could this be yet another proof that money spoils people? Well, we guess it could be.

Not only are iPhone users more prosperous, but they also seem to have a better education altogether. If you are wielding one of Cupertino's smartphones, then you are over 55% more likely to have a bachelor's degree and twice as likely to sport a master's degree from a university. Meanwhile, only 28% of all Android enjoyers on AYI have a university degree – the remainder of 72% seemingly did not favor higher education.

Device-wise, the Samsung Galaxy S III and the Galaxy S4 appear to be the most popular smartphones that Android fans used to access the AYI mobile app. At the same time, the iPhone 4 was used four times more than the iPhone 5 to access the dating service.

what a rubish survey
there are tons of cheap android phones which cost under $100 whereas any iphone is expensive.
"The survey should have done comparing main android flagships vs iphone"
EVEN MY DOG CAN TELL THIS SURVEY IS TOTALLY INVALID

PhoneArena, that was probably the single worst article I have ever read. Pointless and completely invalid.

Exactly, these are stupid studies that aim to become famous nothing more. If you compared anything between iphone and android users you will get results but whether they are meaningful is the question, by anything I mean anything like tall, weight, favorate food, favorite colour, shoes size or even whether they wipe their A** or not, but this is meaningless unless there is real connection, ie people use their phone to wipe their sh**

Anyway this statistics are based only on 13,690 users in United States so it can be far away from global situation.

Here is other interesting infographic:

"Apple vs Android – an infographic on the rivalry"

I have send this link to PhoneArena but looks like they for some reasons were not interested.

Not only that, but this survey draws from a very small segment of the U.S. population. 83% of iOS users make over $150,000, and 70% of Android users make over $60,000? Both of these income brackets are much higher than the average American single.

See there's a huge flaw in relying on big data and even big companies (say Google) got ahead of themselves like this one timehttp://pocket.co/s5rvD?cta=1

Definitely that 'very small segment' of the population is contained with rich-a** people who knows nothing about technology and in some way 'educated' because of the amount of dollars their parent has.

Well anyway I don't have to say this though... It's OK though.

An online dating site spewing stats on our phones? Ok...let's just pretend for a moment that no one on this dating site lies lol. This isn't really anything to put stock into or trust as factual information. But we can be sure that this is a desperate attempt at 'fruit' recognition as they really do need all the help they can get these days to stay relevant :-)

Apple is dying? again??? It doesn't matter where the survey was made. You can check all the previous ones similar to this and they all had the same conclusion. I'm sure this is not the first time you've heard of this.

This study must be hiddenly sponsored by apple to create an image that apple users are more likely to be approached and get a date and by using apple they will have an impression of educated and sophisticated people... although reality is this, apple users are called if0ols and infact they are

this article is such a shame and a completely bias, so this survey tells that iphone users are far way educated, with manners, professional etc. whereas android users are down to earth poor, uneducated, bully and no manners? I know a lot of people (rich, businessman, educated, with bachelor degree) who use flagship android phones like S4, S5 , Note 3 etc. so does it mean they belong on the low class society just because they are using an android phone?

IPhones were made for the typical commercial people
Like old age pensioners and little kids
And for public that wants a phone to pose and show off

Apple decided that we will not make midrange or budget phones but a midrange subpar outdated 2 years old phone with a high end price to pay phone

They capulated the public the idea worked and apple continues to Serenade

It's because "iPhone's are cool" and "Android is for nerds"

A typical iPhone user. How are they more educated when this one doesn't know when to use an apostrophe?

Okay. First of all, I'm not an iPhone user. In fact, I hate iPhone's (mainly because of small low res screens and iOS). Secondly, my whole comment was sarcasm, or what many "cool" people think. And lastly, how did I use them wrong?

300+ PPI is not low res

42. ArtSim98 (Posts: 3535; Member since: 21 Dec 2012)


lol. PPI has nothing to do with resolution. Have a 1" display and 500x200 resolution would make 538 PPI. So you would call that high res.?

iPhone has so "high"(still not even close to bigger 1080p displays) PPI because the display is so freaking small. That also makes you look closer at the display. 1080p display shows a lot more details no mater what the size/PPI is.

And my entire comment was about the misuse of the apostrophe. You should not use an apostrophe in this case because your noun is plural - indicated by "are." Don't get me wrong, I'm not a grammar police or a professor, I'm just someone who paid attention in high school.

Okay then. Nice. But just to let you know I'm Finnish so it's only natural that my English grammar isn't on top. Plus I'll just be going to high school next fall lol.
