New research claims that iPhone owners spend more money on their appearances and are more full of themselves than those who have BlackBerrys or Android phones.

BlackBerry owners, however, tend to earn the most money and are more likely to have long-term relationships, while Android users have the most manners and culinary skills.

According to Daily Mail, the study was commissioned by TalkTalk Mobile and surveyed 2,000 owners of the three devices to determine whether their chosen smartphone was truly an extension of their personality.

Participants with iPhones were discovered to be more image-conscious, generally rating themselves more attractive than those with other devices.

BlackBerry owners were the busiest group, sending more messages and emails than Apple customers. They also earn thousands more than other smartphone owners and are more likely to have a lot of friends.

Android owners were found to drink the most alcohol and watch the most TV, engaging in these activities more times in a typical week than the other two groups.

Daily Mail reports that the study rated participants using a point scoring system regarding personality traits, daily habits and occupation.

BlackBerry users tended to define themselves as loud and bubbly. Many of them work in the health, finance or property sectors and drink more tea and coffee than iPhone or Android users.

iPhone users identified themselves as daring, flirty or bright and believed they are valued most by their employers. They are most likely to work in media, publishing, retail or education and are also the most active on social media sites.

Android users, though, who are more shy and relaxed than the other two groups, tended to have jobs in engineering, public service and the U.S. government.

Dan Meader, Director of Mobile at TalkTalk, said: “Many of us have our mobile phones on us almost constantly so they do become an extension of us in many ways.”

“It’s interesting to see then how the choice in handset may reflect different aspects of personality and the results do reveal some quirky differences.Once you see yourself as a certain type of phone user, it can become a huge part of the way you live your life and people tend to subscribe to the one they feel suits them best.”

“Of course, simply buying a certain type of phone doesn’t mean your personality or way of living immediately changes, but the results could suggest that certain types of personality are drawn to different features and functions of certain handsets.”
