Why do women prefer using the iPhone over other smartphones?

Oh iPhone! You seem to be a big hit with the ladies. Apple’s pride and joy is undoubtedly a dynamic piece of tech that’s bursting from the seams with plenty of personality, but interestingly enough in my experience, there’s just something about it that make women...

My wife loves hers. And I hate it. What it does it does just fine. It's all personal preference.

My girlfriend hates white phones, I had a chance to get her an iphone 4 for cheap and she passed it up because it was white.

Out of the 3 women that I helped exchange their GS3 for an iPhone 4S. They really liked Android. But their number #1 complaint is that its too big!

I guess if Samsung Galaxys S III was wearing Apple's logo, they would not think that it is to big.

> they would not think that it is to big.

Obviously, you don't observe how females tend to have smaller hands than males, ceteris paribus.

One of the biggest drawbacks to large screen android devices is that they are uncomfortable to hold for an extended period of time.

I know and understand about what are you talking, I just say that for some people brand name is more important than ergonomy.

Maybe holding and using one handed but if size equalled discomfort no one would buy tablets.

Ps, I have small hands, I was trying to be outright argumentative. Sorry that seemed rude I couldn't edit and reword it because someone posted after me :)

So I just noticed that you must post comment with a dictionary right next to you. Only you don't know how to properly use the terms which you are using. A little advice, stop trying to start drama.

cptbeatstix, you and tkvdog are like two peas in a pod. You must feel like a big person making that sexist comment.

It's called having a sense of humor. Apparently you are the only one offended by the comment. Be an adult, have a chuckle and move on. Plus, this article is a bit sexist in itself seeing that its generalizing that women love the iPhone. Next?

from what i know and when i ask most girls why they want the iphone...its usually because its the popular and ''cool'' thing to have. rarely do they ever use the full capabilities of the iphone and use it like a dumb phone

True, most of the girls i know just use it to make calls, text, take pictures and play games like angry birds.
Well, you can't really expect more than these from an iphone also..

Okay, what makes iphone simple to use compare to a Android? Every time I ask someone i work with, they usually stumble over their own tongue and end up with a answer like "it's just easy" which doesn't answer the question.

I'm one of them thar females - and I have no interest in an iPhone. Where did they conduct this study? A social gathering? What kind? A party gathered to watch "The Bachelor"?

The article is entitled: "Why do women prefer using the iPhone over other smartphones?"

and not: Why do ALL women prefer using the iPhone over other smartphones?

The absence of the word "all" makes a huge difference.

No, putting the word some in front of women would make a huge difference.

And I thumbed you up on accident.
