If its not the phone its definitely the apps that can tell a lot about the user. Apps analytics can reveal what/where  the user do, work, play, eat, sleep, move, listen or friend.

But for now there is not a single app that consolidate info from all apps in use.

I feel it's at least a little bit weird to judge the owner by using his smartphone. People have various preference and it does not tell too much about personality on this asepct.

Re: Smartphone Personality
Wether you agree with them or not, you have to respect the flip phone users. I am an Android user, and at least once a week, an iPhone user will ask me if my phone is "any good."

Personality Test
OMG ! Are you serious. I will never look at a cell phone and its owner in the same way again. I never even thought about it in this context. But am curious to know what my cell phone choice talks about my personality....Sometimes technology goes too far ... or not!

Re: Meh

I agree I get the phone that comes free with my plan so I may skew the results of the study significantly! While the research may be true of iPhone users it doesn't mean users of other phones don't have the same attributes.

Ode to flip phnes
Flip phones fit into my pockets. Flip phones can be answered singlehandedly, and without being looked at. One can talk on a flip phone while hands free - no blue tooth or ear piece required. Flip phones do not require a data plan. Flip phones are not attention grabbers - they sit quietly in a pocket where they belong, and do not scream at you when xyz desides to share with the world that he or she just sneezed. For everything else I have a PC. And in case you are wondering - I am a middle-aged female software developer with two kids - and I love gardening. Interestingly, my husband, who is - insidently - a middle-aged software developer with two kids as well, also has a flip phone, but he is does not care for gardeneing at all.

People like you are very rare. Most people give in to the pressure, even if they have to buy on credit or take a loan. Smart phone is fast becoming a status symbol: If you dont hold a shiny new device in your hand, you are a loser.
