Well, this was probably the most heated survey we’ve ever run.
Across 1.3k respondents, ~46% were Android users and ~54% were iPhone users.
One notable stat: 16.7% of the Android users said they have less respect for iPhone users while 27.2% of the iPhone users said the same about Android users. (Yikes.)
Which answers appeared the most?
Answers both for and against the “Apple ecosystem” accounted for ~62% of all responses.
The root word “ease” was included in 17.8% of all answers, and “custom” and “flexibility” appeared across ~10%.
Somewhat unsurprisingly, “cult” and “green texts” appeared in ~4% of answers.
Here’s what some folks had to say:
- “I don’t wanna be the person in the group making texts green. No one likes that person.” — (Stuart from Cincinnati)
- “It amuses me to be the ‘green bubble’ — it’s my favorite color afterall.” — (Mari from San Antonio)
- “The iPhone speaks something that Android doesn’t: Culture.” — (David from San Juan)
- “I’d prefer to have better technology at a better price rather than a mere symbol of how ‘cool’ I am.” — (Josh from Thibodaux)
- “I love everything Apple, they can do no wrong.” — (Maggie from Toronto)
- “I don’t join cults.” — (Jim from Nashua)
- “The back button on Androids.” — (15 people)
- “I switch every year so I know how to operate both phones.” — (Jorge from Caracas)
- “Apple is a great brand, but doesn’t necessarily make better products.” — (Tiana from Detroit)
Thanks to all who answered, especially Simoné from Boston, whose response was too long to fit in this email — but unforgettable.
