Apple iPhone users the smartest, BlackBerry users the dumbest?

Apple iPhone users the smartest, BlackBerry users the dumbest?
Aha! So this is why those devices we carry around and covet (like Clarice) are called SMARTphones. Ladbroke, a betting parlor as they say in Jolly Old England where such places are legal, tested the intelligence and cunning of 2000 smartphone owners. These subjects took A Test of Wits which is comprised of seven brain teasers. At the same time it was measuring your intelligence, the web site also asked for the name of the phone that each subject was using. From that information, we can say that users of the Apple iPhone are the smartest.

It took those sporting an iPhone 94 seconds on average to complete the test, which was a full 5 seconds faster than those using a Nexus branded handset. Samsung owners finished third with an average score of 103 seconds. Those with an HTC handset in their pockets were next, taking 2 seconds longer on average to finish the puzzles. Nokia owners and BlackBerry owners took the longest, with scores of 109 seconds and 118 seconds respectively.

If you want redemption, or just think that you're smarter than the rest of the world's BlackBerry users, you can take the test for yourself by clicking on the sourcelink. And hey, let us know how you score by commenting in the box below.

This study is hardly indicative of anything. 10 seconds isn't enough to draw any concrete conclusions. Or someone can just as easily justify the score by saying older businessmen with less plastic brains obviously won't do as well as younger teens who like to play brain games on their phones often. But still, watch all the Android fans jump on this article and prove the findings to be correct by shouting, pointing fingers, and generally acting the stupidest, even though this 'study' is ridiculous.

Ridiculous, indeed. There are both smart and dumb Android owners, smart and dumb iPhone owners, smart and dumb WP owners. And same thing with Nexus, Sammy and Sony owners.

It really doesn't matter because the test is flawed. I completed it in 31 seconds and others below have completed it in less time.

my time 29 seconds, which makes me wonder 2 important things, 1) who are the morons they tested, and most important 2) why the hell did I waste the time reading this and taking test.

"Seriously download Gmail? I don't have a Gmail haha" um, iOS and Android have Gmail app. Download app seriously? What, should downloading app be like some comedy? You can change battery nowadays only in Samsungs, and select phones from others, same thing with memory. Seriously, what are you talking about? Are you iOS fan or Android fan or what?

My good man, you need armies to have wars and, quite frankly, one army against a flurry little herd of white puffy mammals just would not be fair. Besides, truth is, the real reason those Quas-iPhone owners were faster to respond was because they were hooked up to a Wireless N+ wi-fi router, whereas Android owners were connected to their respective networks (remember, they were in a basement - most of those betting parlors are in seedy sublevel basements, so I've been told). Blackberry owners were slow because they were still trying to upgrade to BB10.

Do they have any controls in place? I completed it in 31 seconds by just picking one of the choices at random and then picking another if it was wrong. I didn't even read the questions.

I was kind of thinking the same thing. The wrong answer shouldn't allow you to pick another.

Or at least a time penalty for each wrong answer.
