PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Does Android skew towards a younger demographic? The numbers might surprise you. According to comScore, 52.4% of all Android users are aged 35 years or older. That is five percentage points higher than the iPhone. Near 55% Android tablets users are also older than 35." How is this surprising? Younger people tend to be more brand-conscious, and there's no denying that the iPhone is still perceived as cooler than Android phones. Also note that the cited figures are for the US, Apple's strong home market. I think the figures will look very different for Europe.

You are arguing that in countries where people prefer Android to iPhone, those who still choose to prefer the iPhone will be necessarily older on average than in America.

I see no logic or support to that claim whatsoever.


Younger people buy more smartphones than older people. Pretty straightforward.
