If you own an Android phone, you’re probably a young, socially plugged-in guy or gal between the ages of 18 and 44 who earns between $50,000 and $75,000 a year. But if you own an iPhone, you’re more likely to be a white man or woman age 55 or older. Sound about right?
These enlightening cell-phone owner characteristics come from newly released data gathered by the Pew Research Center’s Internet and American Life Project. The info was gathered by interviewing 2,252 adults, ages 18 and older, between April 17 and May 19, 2013.
Smartphones are becoming more and more popular with younger consumers as people embrace their accessibility and features. And Android systems surpassed iPhones in popularity in 2012.
So how do you use your phone? Texting and downloading apps still remain the most popular activities, but 28.7% of U.S. owners also listen to music on the go, according to ComScore 2013 research.
And chances are, if you own a smartphone, you probably have a laptop, iPad or digital tablet too. Smartphone users have strong cross-platform tendencies. That means 84% are likely to be using their phone or tablet while watching TV, while 64% often have the laptop and phone or tablet going while watching TV. (That comes from the Magid Media Futures study.)
With all those devices in your home, chances are they don’t all run on the same systems (all Apple or all Android). And it’s expensive to replace your tablet or phone just so you can share music and files across them.
