It is no surprise that mobile phones are the most used technology in the world. Over 1,900 million people are using mobile phones all over the world at the same time. Forget the world, in the UK alone the number of mobile phone users increased by 43 percent in only four years.
VoucherBin.co.uk has carried out a survey on mobile phones. In its infographic the firm offers detailed stats of mobile use in different years, age groups, countries and for different reasons.
Mobile phones are mostly used by young adults, ranging from the age of 18 to 34. Some 50 percent of people aged over 55 are also mobile phone users. People aged 16 years or above spend around 33 percent of their time a week on their mobile phones, with a staggering 88 percent of their communications done via text messaging. About 76 percent of the communications are done by voice calls.
Around 84 percent of people use one to 20 apps on a regular basis. Of these people 50 percent pay £1 per month for apps, while 28 percent of people have never made an app-related purchase. Of all the apps in question, Apple's iTunes is the most popular in the UK with an estimated 10.9 million visitors each day.
People in the UK have the highest purchasing rate per month at 32 percent, and why wouldn't they? Some 81 percent of them keep their phone turned on even when they sleep and around 51 percent of people use their phones while socialising. About 22 percent of people even admitted that they use their phones while in the toilet.
With 97 percent of people worldwide spending time on their smartphones at home, the market for smartphones is also increasing. Smartphones are now used for online services, internet use, taking pictures, watching videos, social networking or even to play games.
