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...

the iPhone is small(for small hands), simple to use, popular by brand, compact/slim(easy to put in skinny jeans and a purse) and of course its shiny.

I made jokes before but it is true, the iPhone is a chick phone.

My kid has the 3GS, used on wifi only - that thing is so tiny....sister broke down and purchased 2 iphone 4s at best buy for 49.99 each...she says she bought them due to price - she wanted the SGS3, but that would have cost 399.98.....

Windows Phone 8 may be able to shake things up. It'll certainly have the ease of use, and a refresh of the Nokia 800 will hit the nail on the head in terms of size and design (admit it, the 800 is very pretty, especially in blue). Also, WP8 will likely have seamless integration with Windows 8 (many women have Windows laptops, probably more than Macs), but the accesory lineup remains to be seen. But Nokia seems to have the perfect formula for targeting the younger female crowd, and Apple will certainly take notice.

Not all women like the iphone. Some girl I went to work with has a galaxy note. I thought she was crazy for getting a phone that big. I couldnt even imagine using a phone that big myself, the Galaxy S3 is pushing it but still doable.

Because it's marketed toward 16 year old girls. The phone fits perfectly into their hands.

How is a "social event" representative of "women" in general? I'm surprised PA put this up as an article, when instead it's more akin to a Facebook post.

I can pretty much guarantee that if those women saw all the fancy ways they could girly up their phones using Google Play market's home replacement apps, they'd drop it in five seconds. My two sisters, my daughter, and wife have found this little gem out and every lady they show their HTC One, SGS3, or Galaxy Sexus, as they call it, instantly wants to customize their screens too and they suddenly realize just how boring their 3.5" phone is with its apps that just scroll left to right, and wallpaper that's covered by app squares. Plus they still get the crazy bling cases to boot. It usually causes mass girl envy. (Which I think is stupid)

I agree, its a huge status and trend setter for women...but in the end I believe the iPhone has become somewhat of a fashion accessory as well with the bedazzled cases or whatever... just like a woman needs the coach purse, the stellitoes, and maybe even the seven jeans they also need the all white iPhone... and yes they still don't know how to work it... soon the iPhone availability will be played out to where even prepaid users can get it and status is no longer justified by the white iPhone for women

because WAY more women are more technology illiterate than men are, in addition to that whole status thing.

Marissa Mayer is not technologically illiterate, and even when she was an executive with Google, she favored the iPhone. I'm thinking your generalization is a bit hollow and tainted by fanboyism.

hey genius, I never said that ALL women are technology illiterate, I sad most of them are. Marissa Mayer is a successful businesswoman, and can hardly be counted as "average", i'm talking about the average right now, and most can't be bothered with the customization and learning curve of android to interfere with their lives, jobs, kids etc. You need to calm down.

It's a fashion statement to the women mostly. They like their cars to be certain color, their clothes a certain brand name, and their phones need to be named after some kind of fruit.

Because more women are becoming hipsters nowdays. Hipsters like hip but dumb phones.

There're some women that are dumb. There're some men that are dumb. Which statistic shows that there're more dumb women that dumb men?
Wow, guys, you talk like that in real life too, or just pour your real feelings about women on the internet?

Apple can increase the sales of this device even more if they release an iPhone in Pink! If women are loving the iPhone in just black and white... can you imagine if it comes in pink?

Of course once Apple do that I am pretty sure that we will not see any other company launching pink devices. Apple will submit a patent for the pink color and will sue the competition if they come up with another pink device. Just saying...
