According to Hunch Android users are pessimists and iPhone users are optimists

Every now and then a crazy survey comes up trying to compare Android users and Apple users. A recent one by Hunch recently came out that has a slew of information.


According to Hunch, Android users are more pessimistic vs the optimistic iPhone users. Android users are more likely to be introverts, make less money, follow rather than lead, and never back up their computer. In contrast, iPhone users are more likely to be extroverts, make more money, lead rather than follow, and constantly back up their computer.

For Television, Android users prefer Louie, How I Met Your Mother, and The Walking Dead. iPhone users like Planet Earth, Portlandia, and The Killing.  Android users prefer Honey Nut Cheerios vs iPhone users munching Rice Krispies.

One more notable difference is that Android users are more likely to prefer an ugly device that is full featured, while iPhone users prefer something sleek that does a few things.

All of this was gathered from 15,818 Hunch users. Check out all the categories after the break.

In his free time he enjoys sports, movies, TV, working out, and trying to keep up with the rapid fast world of technology.

    Lots of studies and surveys indicate that most optimists are idiots as well….. so…, do the math.

    It’s natural that people who don’t know any better are more optimistic.
