Do you consider a mobile phone to be a device useful just for making calls and texts? Well, if you think so, you are mistaken, as a new research has revealed that the phone we use can be a window into the lives we lead.
The study, which asked iPhone and BlackBerry users to rate their attractiveness on a scale of one to ten, found that while owners of Apple devices gave themselves a six, BlackBerry users thought they were only worthy of a five, Metro.co.uk reported.
It was found that people who possess a BlackBerry earn nearly 2,500 pounds more per year and work less for it.
The study commissioned by TalkTalk also showed that iPhone users are vain and spend the most on clothes and grooming. They love to travel and label themselves as daring, flirty, bright and confident.
Meanwhile, BlackBerry users are more likely to be in a long-term relationship and have the most friends.
They are busier, send more messages and emails and make more calls than their Apple opposites.
The research surveyed 2,000 owners of the three major smartphone brands to determine whether the choice of handset was an extension of their personality.
People using Android phone were found to be hard working but drink the most alcohol.
They are also a devoted TV addict, shy, quiet and calm.
