Android users more honest than iPhone users – New study

You know how iPhone users from our part of the world rub their ‘superiority’ in our face with their gadgets the least chance they get right?

In fact, such is the entitlement of that superiority complex they wield here to the extent that someone can simply snatch your girlfriend away from you just because of an iPhone.

At least, we (Android users) can now heave a sigh of relief in this new finding which gives us just one bragging right ahead of them.

So in this interesting report, we culled from indy100, a new finding details how android users are deemed honest ahead of their counterparts who use iPhones.

More than 500 participants answered questions about themselves and their attitudes to their smartphones for researchers at the University of Lincoln, Lancaster University, and the University of Hertfordshire.

The researchers found that iPhone users are also more likely to see their phone as a status symbol than Android users, have higher levels of emotionality, and are more likely to be extroverted.

Android users were less interested in wealth and social status and were more honest and agreeable. The study, published in the journal Cyberpsychology, Behaviour, and Social Networking, found they were also less likely than iPhone users to break rules for personal gain.

Based on their findings, the researchers designed a computer programme aimed at predicting what smartphone people owned. The programme guessed correctly 70 per cent of the time.
