I thought it would be fun to think back and list all of the smartphones I had in the past. Well… my first mobile phones can rather be categorised as ‘dumb’ phones (officially, they are called feature phones). Smartphones are part of everyday life now for most of us now and that’s largely due to the price-performance improvements of these devices. We are connected all the time and it’s the smartphone that is the enabler.
Every day, the average smartphone user spends 128 minutes actively using the device. That’s just over two hours. The average user is spending those 128 minutes surfing the Internet (for nearly 25 minutes), engaging in social networking (for more than 17), listening to music (more than 15), and playing games (more than 14).
