Wonder what differences between iOS vs Android users are? What about their personality traits and preferences in things like fashion, food, media consumption, technology, and politics? Or how about general life experience and spending habits?

Stereotypes abound in this giant iOS vs Android user profile infographic, and it covers a wide variety of data that spells out the differences between the average iOS user and Android user. Whether you believe the data or not, it’s an interesting look at the smartphone and tablet OS wars.

    iClones are afraid of technology, not early adopters.

    This kind of study will never work because there are soo many android phones and just a handful of iPhones. Android phones will span a whole slew of demographics. For instance, the free phones will go to poorer users while premium nexus devices will be for the more affluent. If you compared the average stock android user to any other android user you’d likely find vast differences.

    @Neil S, MADMike

    The internet has been around since before 1992, it didn’t fully start to commercialize until 1995… but it was around for those who actually had a computer AND a modem.

    The point seems to be that iOS fans are also early adopters. I guess the stats about Android users being less educated is true though… ya didn’t research, you guys just assumed this article was wrong. Better to remain silent and seem a fool, than to speak, and remove all doubt.

    P.S. I’m an Android user.

    How are iOS users 50% more likely to have first used the internet before 1992? I assume this is a typo.

    It would be interesting to see a study like this conducted with specific phones rather than operating systems. The reason I say that is because there’s so many Android phones that are cheap and free and that might be altering the results since iPhones are never free. If you did a study like this with only iPhone 4 and a couple of premium non-free Android phones, which cost $200 on contract, I wonder how it might affect the results. Just a thought.

    Havent seen demographics with such categories before. Interesting but confusing

  7. It’ll be quite challenging to manage pellet quality leading to as well.

  8. Jared says:

    Hah, I match both sides in many things. I got an Android recently.

    Remember it is “more likely” among a large number of individuals, it is not an exact key for every iPhone or Android user.

  9. Chip says:

    so basically, blue-collar slobs prefer Droids and White-collar stiffs prefer iPhones? Why have I had an iPhone for the past 3 years then? Oh yeah, because the research firms are full of CRAP!

    • JR says:

      It’s a study of percentages man, it’s not going to fit every single user perfectly. That’s why it has X% “more likely”. I personally have a few of the Android characteristics, even though I use an iPhone. But I think in general, most people will lean towards one over the other in terms of their personal profile.

  10. Capuchin says:

    Stereotypical yes, but also fairly accurate for everyone I know with either devices. Android folks are a lot more close minded, and iPhone folks are much more higher maintenance, you could replace Android and iPhone with Windows and Mac or a variety of other groups and it’d be fairly accurate too.
