People who buy Android found to be more humble and honest than iPhone users

Recommended Posts

Yeah, the study's methodology is flawed... way too small a sample to be representative.  As it is, some of the responses in the thread seem to speak more about Android users' impressions of iOS users than the iOS users themselves.

 

The truth is that both sides have their annoying advocates.  There are certainly people who are convinced that everything Apple does is great.  However, it's just as irksome when you run into hardcore Android advocates who are convinced they're "liberating" iOS users from the shackles of oppression, or pretend that using Android is counterculture when it's really the most conformist thing you can do.  It's a phone, folks, not a lifestyle choice.

YEAHHHH NOW I CAN USE THIS TO TOTALLY RECK MY FRIENDS WHO USE IOS :D. Good bye, I'm off to totally recking them xD 

 

On a serious note: Thie actually kinda makes sense in my mind. A huge majority of the iOS user base is consisted of people who are pretty rich and that have never bought android. Quite often these are the people that don't want to admit they have something worse than others. On the other hand android users tend to have made a choice between iOS and android and thus some of them may respect the choice iOS users made.

 

I can't explain it that well, but what I'm trying to say is each OS seems to cater to a different type of personality and this study is a perfect example of that.

lol i aint rich, i have brought an android phone.....4 to be precise, i to made a choice, and chose apple.......your right you cant explain it and as my mother would say....if you cant say anything intelligent....shut the ...... up

While there are methodological issue, the sample size isn't necessarily small (and it would take several checks to ensure it's representative -but representative of what?- even if it was 10 times larger or 10 times smaller). For univariate estimation, N=infinity is a reasonable good approximation from N=30 onwards. At N=100 you are more than safe. For a comparison of means, 240 is plenty. The real problem is selection, and adding controls pushes the relevant N further and further.

Hard to make concrete conclusions with such a small sample size. However, it is a starting off point for future research, but I doubt anyone else would care enough to conduct a larger study.

Yeah, this is the most ridiculous piece of news (And what a clickbait title!) that I've seen in a while.

 

It's right there in the text, folks:

Quote

participants were asked to complete a questionnaire about the characteristics they associate with users of each smartphone brand

They didn't use the study to analyze the characteristics of users, the use the study to analyze what people think of users of each OS.

 

This study is fucking stupid, and the conclusions most people draw in this thread are pretty laughable. This is basically confirmation bias for all the Android users, who are like "DAMN RIGHT I'M HUMBLE!" lol

In my opinion these kind of social sciences experiments are silly and divert funds from worthwhile experiments. They make broad assumptions from a small amount of users.

An android user is more likely to be poor and uneducated....

 

Considering android phones can be bought for a few $ it just boils down to recycling statistics on poor vs wealthy.

Well, the second part was a study of Android and iOS users to establish their characteristics but yeah even that one was flawed.

Is it possible to read the study to see the "science". The daily mail article is pretty light on the details.

If they link the study (or name the Title of it, and where it was published), you can hunt it down, definitely. But most studies are published in peer review journals. These are subscription based (for the most part). If you go to University, you often get free access to these journal databases. Otherwise you gotta generally pay to access them.

I do have online access to papers from my university, maybe I can dig it up.

I haven't seen a "study" this useless in a long time. Really long time.


The ability to google properly is a skill of its own.

No luck whatsoever, the only paper published involving Heather Shaw as a creator/author I was able to find was this:

 

"Beyond Self-Report: Tools to Compare Estimated and Real-World Smartphone Use"

 

So, it's probably not available to University students yet.

From personal experience, I agree with this. Everyone I know with an android (except a Samsung) is a genuinely nice person, but the apple users I'm familiar with are a mixed bunch.

Though I hate to say it, and lord do I hate it, this really holds no merit. On a global scale there's a nearly infinite amount of factors that need to be included for this study to be of any statistical value.

 

I myself like to think that people that choose an iphone are pricks, but that's a huge generalization based on my personal environment and habit.  Sometimes an iPhone is just the best decision, hopefully never for me though.

So... since I use both Android and iOS just about equally every day... I must be a humble liar.

 

I must humbly disagree with this article ;)

Agreed.

 

@Gr0egercesg, I could just as easily say the reverse. Most people I know who have an iPhone are super nice people. I know lots of "arrogant" people who have Android, who think they're self-superior to iOS users because of "Open Source" and "customization", and all of that stuff.

 

I honestly think there's no relation. I know Android users who are good too, and I know iOS users who aren't nice. I wouldn't say Android users are nicer in any meaningful way.

Of course this is not always true but... Most of the times when I'm talking about phones with an Apple user they always try to impose that Apple devices are always better than Windows/Android.

I've hear some dumb stuff like "Mac has a better processor than any other computer" and the constant "IOS > Android". This already can tell a lot from someone.

To be fair though , this applies to any tech illiterate trying to defend their purchase , whether it is on the pc , apple or console side xD

Agreed, I've seen plenty of users who think Android is so superior to iOS, and that iPhones suck (And things like making fun of the Apple A-series dual core, despite it being just as fast - if not faster - than a Qualcomm quadcore).

 

This is not unique to iOS users.

Yep, we have the bunch that are even welling to go to the extent of name calling other users. We have all seen the "iSheep" calling bunch. Some people take their smartphone choice way too personally.
