I've lived in both NYC and L.A. and I can tell you this much: iPhone users live predominantly in nicer, richer areas, whereas Android users are in the ghet-TOH! hahah...Even Chicago looks to be similar, with the notorious South Side all Android and the northern parts as well as the nicer downtown and adjacent areas are all iPhone. hahah

Well Android does offer phones of a lower cost and quality, ones who live in a place where financial matters are not the best, would be more opened to purchase.
