Haha, this was an interesting read. It kind of reminds me why I don't feel like the phone for me is an iPhone. I have one by choice, but it's not my ideal preference but it's the smallest phone aside from the XZ2 Compact.

I wish this was accurate for me, but I'm not from a rich family

Sometimes, this is true. A lot of the people who use Snapchat are iPhone users. Not saying that people who use it are this way, of course. It's just something I noticed.

well considering that they look down on people who dont have an iphone. i would say yes. basing someone off of their phone is truly the stupidest trend these days.

Agreed. I forgot about the whole "ew green bubble" attitude that some people have.

I have a Motorola phone and damn that’s me all the way, kudos to whoever came up with that.

WTF? I own a Sony phone because it delivers everywhere I need it to, not because my mother asked me to be like my brother!

Lol I like it even though they low-key flamed each manufacture.

It means you have disassociative personality disorder...just like me!

I think this is pretty legit funny if you enter it knowing the article is satire. The people who are genuinely offended, or think this is a waste of time probably ought to take a step back and take things a little less seriously. It's just an article on the internet, guys. Life goes on. That said, it is fascinating how each smartphone company has their own subculture, and kind of "image" that is projected. The image, of course, may or may not be accurate, but it is there.

I miss my Motorola. Now it all makes sense...my piece of crap LG is messing with my life. Now seems like a good time to replace the battery in my Nexus 6 lol.
