Using Android instead of iPhone is better for your relationship, says study

Android smartphones iOS Apple

The study is based on more than 2,000 people and suggests that anyone who uses an Android smartphone is a better partner than someone who uses an iPhone, the Apple phone. The premise is justified with the slightest tendency to be annoying on the smartphone.

On the other hand, a previous study by the same company, Compare My Mobile, concluded that those who use iPhone are more likely to find a partner. The connotation between telephone and status socio-economic justified the advantage given to the Apple phone.

The intersection of technology, smartphones and emotional relationships

The publication of the new study coincides with the festive season of S.Valentim, a court associated with interpersonal and socio-affective relationships, this year also conditioned by the pandemic COVID-19. But, after all, how does technology and passion intersect?

The entity carried out a study that involved more than two thousand people. He asked them about the most irritating habits the partner has over the phone, or caused by it. The goal? Find out what habits have the potential to displease your better half and potentially put the relationship at risk.

The findings suggest that Android smartphone users are less likely to “suffer” from some of the more irritating habits that can endanger the relationship. Given the above, we can say that iPhone users are more stable.

Among the “bad habits” listed are, for example,:

  • Using the phone when watching a movie or series on TV
  • Use the phone during a conversation
  • Use the phone when eating at the table
  • Use the phone during “quality time”
  • Use filters on all photos
  • Do not reply to messages
  • Excessive use of social networks
  • Take pictures of food before eating
  • Use the phone while driving

The first column lists the “bad habits” that were surveyed during the survey. The second shows us the percentage of iPhone users who admitted to having these behaviors. Third is the percentage of Android users who admitted to these practices. Finally, we have the difference between iPhone and Android users.

The largest percentage difference was recorded in the telephone user during a meal at the table. In this scenario, 64% of iPhone users admitted to doing so, while only 42% of Android users had the same behavior.

Using the phone while watching a movie or series on TV, the unthinkable!

Worse than using the phone during a meal at the table. Worse than taking multiple photos of the same meal, or using filters on all photos, the “horribilis ” is using the phone while watching a movie or series on TV with your partner.

This practice was worse classified than not answering the phone to the better half, or not responding to messages and communications. It is even worse than leaving “Like” or like in more sexually explicit, or suggestive posts on Instagram and other social networks.

At this point, 75% of iPhone users admitted consulting their phone during a movie or series on TV. The percentage decreases 16% in Android smartphone users, where 59% admitted having this behavior with their partner.

Regardless of the phone used, most users cannot go 90 minutes without consulting their smartphone.

Men are the main “culprits” for bad habits

Separating users by sex, we see that male users are primarily responsible for bad habits, with a greater incidence in six of the 10 habits listed.

The chart above indicates the most irritating behaviors for couples and which of the two sexes is most likely to practice it. The division between men and women shows us that the female sex has more difficulties in not using the phone while watching a series or film on television.

On the other hand, males are more likely to not respond to messages, use the phone at the table, or leave the “like” or taste in certain inflammatory publications on social networks.

In summary, if there is a conclusion to be drawn from here, it is that nobody is immune to these bad practices and that we should think about not depending so much on the smartphone for everything we do.
