Types of users

Deciding which types of users which would fit into each system and device will enable us to put this information onto our wikis, which we think would be very helpful advice when undecided on the systems, or if you needed general opinions on what products fit to each user.

When it comes to users deciding on whether to choose the iPhone or Android, people never seem to be able to come to a happy medium with these to rival systems.


We have researched into the users and stereotypes, which we think best suits people who use the Iphone over the Android.

The Unappreciative This user bought the iPhone to be trendy and fit in. they have never bought and app, and complains about how big the phone is. However refusing to swap to any other mobile phone.

The Senior Citizen This user isn't really sure how they ended up with an iPhone, doesn't have a clue how to work it, and only uses it for calls. Telling all their friends what great features it has and how amazing it is, but still complaining that they can only use it for phone calls.

People who use android are normally users who don't like the iPhone brand, and therefore decide to go against trend setting to make a point. Therefore people who use these systems have a strong liking for one, therefore meaning they have a big hate for the other system.
