Trump vs. Hillary: Android or iPhone?

Android or iPhone?

It’s a fundamental question, and the answer might reveal quite a bit.

According to the British Psychological Society, a recent study found that women are twice as likely to own an iPhone than men, and those iPhone users are much more worried about having a “high status phone” than anyone else. Android users are more concerned with breaking from the mold and “avoided similarity,” according to the BPS.

The study also found that Android users are perceived to be more humble and honest than iPhone users, but may also be seen as less extroverted.

The simple choice can even help predict what colleges teens will choose to attend, says Forbes. Adolescent Android users seem much more interested in engineering schools, while their iPhone counterparts are looking at more liberal arts colleges.

It seems when it comes to our 2016 presidential candidates, the iPhone vs Android choice may be fairly telling.

So which candidate is which?

Donald Trump: Android, Probably

There’s a widely reported rumor that Donald Trump’s real tweets are all from Twitter for Android, while the tweets from Twitter for iPhone are ‘nicer’ and thus possibly written by his handlers. The rumor is actually deeply researched, with data scientist David Robinson digging through 1,390 of @realDonaldTrump‘s tweets to find answers.

The above video mentions that in 2015, Trump was using a Samsung Galaxy, so he is likely sticking with Android. The theory seems plausible, especially with the data from Trump’s twitter.

This reporter has been informed that Trump now has a Galaxy S7, but there doesn’t seem to be a concrete source for that fact. It would make sense, though, since Trump previously preferred a Galaxy and seems to tweet from Android.

Hillary Clinton: iPhone… and BlackBerry?

Hillary’s smartphone choice is a little foggier than Trump’s.

Back in 2015, Hillary told tech commentator and entrepreneur Kara Swisher that she uses an iPhone, an iPad Mini, an iPad and a Blackberry.

The interview with Swisher is the only real evidence to be found online of Hillary’s iPhone preference, but the 2015 interview wasn’t too long ago. Odds are Hillary has stuck with Apple (and Blackberry, possibly) for her smartphones.

Plus, this sticks with the idea that women are twice as likely to prefer iPhones, since Trump prefers his Android.

So here we are. Hillary seems like an iPhone kind of person (plus an iPad Mini and an iPad), and Trump sticks with Android.

What do you think this choice says about our candidates? Is the idea that Android users are more honest and humble viable in this case?

  1. Hitlary, Hellary Clinton, your trashy husband Bill Clinton raped many women while he was President.
    Donald Trump never did this horrible thing anytime. Now who is more despicable? Hitlary, Hellary,
    Everyone knows you’re trying to make people forget what horrible things you did, while in office.
    People will never forget about that, no matter what you try to do to Trump to destroy him. He loves
    this country and will bring it back to greatness again. You, Hitlary, Hellary, will destroy this country
    if you win. People won’t let you do that by voting for Donald Trump for President November 8th.
    Vote for Donald Trump and get rid of all the corruption in the Government under Liberal Democrat
    ruling and get rid of the corrupt Clintons.

  2. “Android users are more concerned with breaking from the mold and “avoided similarity,””

    Which is probably why they all like to find out what the current, hot phone is and buy it.
