We live in an age where almost half of the planet’s population carry a pocket-sized computer wherever they go. And, with the number of smartphone users rising year on year, it’s become more important than ever to learn how to harness the trend.

- Ready to learn
- Primed to buy and…
- Motivated to stay online
Last year alone, more than half of all social media engagement happened via smartphone and websites across the board have seen consistent growth in mobile visitors.
And it’s not just online businesses that benefit. Most people who are looking for a local business do so using a mobile phone. So, if you’re in the business of driving footfall, you have a pretty compelling reason to understand the latest smartphone statistics.
Which is why we’ve searched the depths of the internet for the most important data about smartphone use and have put it all together in the infographic below.
