The iPhone vs. Android battle is an intense conflict between warring groups hell-bent on making it well know that the opposing groups sucks. It's as American as North vs. South, East vs. West, Boxers Vs. Briefs or dare I even say it, Coke vs. Pepsi.

Recently, we looked at a report that framed the battle as a geographic one, putting more Android users in the South and West and iOS users in the North and East.

Now, personal recommendation service Hunch has used its "Teach Hunch About You" questions to come up with some interesting distinctions between iPhone and Android users.

The inforgraphic discusses the differences in the groups' politics, personality, travel experience, tech-savvy, film preferences, beer preferences and much more. Based on 80+ million responses, here is Droid vs. iOS, the battle of the ops:

It looks like iPhone users tend to be more liberal, while Android users leans more the the right. Android users tend to be more pessimistic, but iPhone users are more high-maintenance.

It's interesting to see that iPhone users are 50% more likely to be early adopters of the internet and are also 50% more likely to text while driving.

Is it just me, or do the culture preferences make iPhone users out to be elitist? For instance, iPhone users prefer The Antlers, Belle and Sebastian, the BBC and Franzen's novel Freedom while Android users prefer ESPN, Comedy Central, 1984, Radiohead and How I Met Your Mother.

The food and drink differences definitely paint Android users as more of the "common man." They like corn pops and cheerios with iPhone users like Kashi GOLEAN Crunch. While Android users prefer a good sirloin or cheesesteak, iOS users prefer sushi and tapas.

Of course, I'm totally serious kidding about the whole elitist thing.

Do these descriptions of Android and iPhone users fit you? Let us know in the comments.
