Do you ever wonder whether most people in the world are using Android phones or the iPhones? This may especially matter to you if you are either an Android fan boy (or girl) or an Apple fan boy.

Presented below are some interesting graphic representations published on various websites, but for this particular blog post, I’m referencing to this particular report published in Daily Mail. This report and associated graphs have been generated as an outcome of around 3 billion geo-tagged tweets using Android phones and the iPhones over a period of two years. Here is the Mapbox blog post that explains the entire process of mapping this gargantuan number of tweets into attractive visualizations.

Guess what most of the people in Jakarta use.
