It’s a common perception that iPhones are used by rich people. However, this recent survey pointed out that most iPhone users are actually not.
A China-based survey company called MobData recently published their report, which compiled the information of smartphone users in China. What caught our attention was the fact that iPhone users in China mostly consist of lower-middle-class people who are described as ‘poor people in disguise’. Which is why it’s not surprising that many Apple users are still rocking the iPhone 6, which debuted in 2014.
They are mostly single women aged between 18 and 34 who earn less than 3,000 Yuan (approx. RM1,800). Also, they have a lower education level compared to users of other brands and work as non-professionals.
Besides, the survey also revealed that Apple users are much more loyal compared to users of other brands. In fact, 65.7 per cent of its users will stick to the brand if they need to get a new phone. As for Huawei, the majority of its users are men who are married and aged between 25 and 34. On average, they earn between 5,000 Yuan and 20,000 Yuan (approx. between RM3,000 and RM12,000) working as semi-skilled workers or professionals. Many of them are successful businessmen as well.
Xiaomi, which is another top smartphone brand in China, saw most of its users comprising married men who earn anywhere between 5,000 Yuan and 10,000 Yuan (approx. between RM3,000 and RM6,000).
