The world is divided into two categories of people: Android users and Apple users. The two mobile giants have been waging a merciless war for many years and you will see that what drives the dance is not necessarily what we think.

The maps that you will discover in this article are the first to show with great precision which of Android or Apple is the most widespread in each country in the world, continent by continent. Published by Electronics Hub, they are based on a qualitative analysis of nearly 350,000 tweets around the world that featured positive, neutral and negative attitudes towards Android and / or Apple.

The feelings between Android and Apple have been pretty tribal from the start. It was Steve Jobs himself who said, when Google launched Android just ten months after Apple launched the iPhone: “I will destroy Android, because it is a stolen product. I am ready to conduct a thermonuclear war on this. “ In this eternal feud, buying a phone has become like choosing a side. Each choice is automatically accompanied by an arsenal of arguments for and against.

If you are an iPhone fan, you appreciate the elegance and simplicity of its design and are horrified by the confusing mess that is the Android operating system. If you are an Android enthusiast, you pity the iPhone user, a prisoner of an overpriced closed ecosystem designed to extract money from its users. Even without resorting to these extremes, many of us will readily recognize which side of the dividing line we are on.

Android vs Apple, a close duel

Basing the competition between the two on the number of countries, Android wins. In total, 74 of the 142 countries studied prefer Android (in green on the map). Only 65 favor Apple (grayed out on the map). This represents a 52% and 48% split, which isn’t a huge difference, of course, but still allows us to say that Android is attracting more countries. Belarus, Fiji and Peru (in yellow on the map) could not decide which side to support in the global telephone war.
