The results were particularly telling and, amongst the juiciest of findings, the survey pointed to the fact that 29 per cent of iPhone owners expect the best in uncertain times, 3 per cent more than the next set of users (Android), said a press release.

The study also showed that 33 per cent of BlackBerry users hardly ever expect things to go their way, suggesting an overall malaise amongst BlackBerry users.

Research also found that iPhone users were particularly resilient in these tough economic conditions with 36 per cent saying they don’t get upset too easily, even during difficult economic times.

Because Gazelle accepts hundreds of thousands of consumer electronic trade-ins each year, the company serves as a unique barometer of U.S. consumer electronics consumption habits. Gazelle is using CES to celebrate collective consumer love for gadgets and to better understand, with a twist, the sociology behind certain Smartphone and tablet users.
