Could your bad taste in smartphones be keeping you single? CompareMyMobile’s new study studied the world of online dating and found that schlepping a pretend iPhone could make you up to 75% less swipe-worthy.

MacDailyNews Take: Nobody likes PITA green bubbles! Even green bubbles hate green bubbles! If they can’t even figure out how to get a real iPhone, swipe left based on the obvious IQ issue alone.


  1. I have found that women judge you by your tech. If you have the latest, greatest, most powerful, they consider you wasteful. I have recently been advising people not to buy a new iPhone until there is truly a compelling reason. And when it comes time to buy, buy top of the line two years old. Damn things are so expensive now you have to treat them like cars. Buy used.
