A new study reveals some very interesting details about what our smartphones say about us. Apparently those who own devices made by BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) (TSE:BB) make more money than owners of any of any other smartphones. That’s according to a survey conducted by Talk Talk mobile and written about by Victoria Woollaston of the Daily Mail.
About 2,000 smartphone users were polled about their jobs, habits and personalities to come up with the results from the survey. The survey focused only on BlackBerry, iOS and Android.

BlackBerry owners are higher earners
The survey indicates that owners of BlackBerry devices earn almost £2,500 more than other smartphone users and have an average annual salary of about £27,406. They also work the least number of hours, according to the survey. In addition, they also tend to be busier and send more emails and messages. They also tend to make more calls on their devices than Apple users.
Users of BlackBerry Ltd (BBRY) devices also are more likely to be more social, have long-term relationships and have a greater number of friends than users of the other two platforms. In general, those who worked in finance, property or health were more likely to use BlackBerry devices. BlackBerry users also drink the most tea and coffee, are the least punctual and eat out more often than users of both of the other two platforms.
iPhone owners are vain
So what does the survey say about Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) users? They’re vain, ambitious, successful and hard workers. They often work in the media and work late more often than those who use the other two platforms. They tend to be better traveled than users of the other platforms, and they spend more money on grooming and clothing than users of the other two platforms.
They’re also described as confident, daring, bright and flirty. iPhone users are also more likely than users of the other two platforms to work in the media.
Android users are the best behaved
Interestingly enough, the list of traits which make up the typical Android user include drinking the most alcohol and also being the most polite. Apparently mean drunks don’t have Android devices—or else they just say they’re polite drunks. Android users tend to be more active on social media and to watch the most TV. They’re also supposedly great cooks, extremely creative and introverted. The majority of Android users in the U.K. work in culture, arts or sports.
