Android users considered a turnoff to phone users

The survey asked 3,000 people what were their biggest turn-offs while looking for a potential partner and said that owning an Android was the most common answer for the year, Dating app POM conducted the survey and they added that the two other answers were “not learning how to drive” and “commenting on celebrities’ social media posts.”

When people with iPhones text each other, their messages send in blue speech bubbles. But when they text non-iPhone owners, messages send in a different hue: bright green, as if to signal that they’re talking to an outsider.

For singles, it’s more than just an aesthetic thing: It’s a dating red flag (or green flag, as it were).

“If it’s not a blue message, I’m not going to bother flirting with you further,” Brooklyn resident and freelance designer Katie McDonough tells The Post. “I’m just like, ‘Why don’t you have an iPhone?’ ”

While Android phones have a larger market share than iPhones, millennials feel a stronger emotional attachment to Apple products than any other brand, according to a 2018 analysis by marketing agency MBLM.
