You may not have caught wind of this interesting smartphone user survey conducted by Telenav a couple of months ago… indeed some interesting results. The survey looks at habits of smartphone users, asks what they would give up for their device, and examines the various different smartphone platforms. Of interest, iPhone users are most likely to checkin to a business (23%), Blackberry users are most likely to spend more than $1 for an app, while Android device users seem to feel their device reflects their sense of style. Finally, it seems iPhone users are most attached to their devices as 28% of users would rather give up seeing their spouse/other half for a week rather than parting with their beloved device!
Some findings of interest that compare the various mobile OS’
- iPhone users were twice as likely than Android users to have spent more than $40 on apps for their current phone.
- Nearly half of Android users said their phone reflects their overall sense of style—more than iPhone users (35%). 43% of BlackBerry users felt their phones reflected their overall sense of style.
- While a strong majority of iPhone users (83%) thought other iPhone users would make the best romantic partners, and a strong majority of Android users (70%) selected other Android users, only 48% of BlackBerry users thought other BlackBerry users would make for the best romantic partners.
