Macworld reports on a new survey today that says what we secretly knew all along, that Android owners really want to get their hands on an iPhone! The survey, which was conducted by phone comparison website MyPhoneDeals.co.uk, found that Android owners were four times more likely to wish that they had an iPhone than iPhone owners were to wish that they had an Android phone. Apparently almost one third of Android owners polled confessed to wanting an iPhone, with just seven percent of iPhone users eyeing up an Android.
Another interesting stat unearthed by the survey was that more than half of the men polled who didnt own a smartphone would choose an iPhone for their first smartphone. However, less than a fifth of non-smartphone users said that they intended to buy an Android phone. The iPhone also proved to be very popular with female respondents, with almost three quarters of those asked saying that it was the most desirable smartphone.
And finally, the survey revealed that iPhone users are the most dependent on their device, with more than two thirds of those surveyed saying that they couldnt manage without their iPhone, in comparison with 29 percent of Android owners.
MyPhoneDeals.co.uk sampled 524 respondents for the survey.
