Sorry everything, Mac enthusiasts. In the war between iPhones and Android users, one study has found that the latter makes better drivers.

Car insurance rates web site analyzed driving behavior of 20,000 drivers collected during more than 8,000 miles of driving, and the results were “clear.” Android users took laps around iPhone users when it came to safe driving, according to the study results published Tuesday.

The results showed that Android users achieved higher safe-driving scores than iPhone users in every category: overall safe driving, speeding, distraction, turning, braking and accelerating.

The study also found that the widest margin was in distractions, meaning Android users most outperformed iPhone users at keeping their hands off their phones while driving. 

Also relevant, according to Jerry, is that Android users achieved higher scores regardless of age, gender, marital status, education and credit rating — characteristics that otherwise are strong predictors of safe-driving scores.
