If you use a BlackBerry, you might as well give up on dating
That brings us to the phone that the study shows will make anyone practically undatable. A BlackBerry handset reduces the chance of romance by a whopping 74%. With the BlackBerry name returning later this year on a 5G phone, those who are single might want to think twice about purchasing one.
Of course, not everyone needs to see what kind of phone someone owns before asking him or her out. The study revealed that the kind of phone someone owns carries more influence among women than men. For women in the 31-35 age bracket, the brand of phone carried by a potential date carries a 70% influence on whether to go out with someone.
For the study, CompareMyMobile created fake dating profiles across 15 major cities. The only difference between the profiles was the tech brand displayed. More than 50,000 swipes were compared to a profile that had no tech displayed.
