Much like other consumer products, cell phones have an array of statistics based on usage, manufacturer, price, etc. Here’s to some of the most interesting US cell phone statistics and facts:
According to PewResearch, as of February 2014:
- 90% of American adults have a cell phone
- 28% of American adults own a smart watch
- 42% of American Adults own tablet
Some say, that cell phones have become an epidemic and to a certain extent, that claim is correct. 67% of cell phone owners find themselves checking their phone for messages, alerts, or calls — even when they don’t notice their phone ringing or vibrating.
44% of cell owners have slept with their phone next to their bed to ensure that they didn’t miss any calls, text messages, or other updates during the night. 29% of cell phone users cannot imagine living without their phones.
Originally, cell phones were designed to make phone calls and send the occasional text. But over the years, as cell phones have matured and evolved, owners of cell phones are using them less and less as they were originally intended.
Since the popularity of cell phones has grown, so has the number of manufacturers trying to gain the consumers business. These days, the buyer can pick between big and small phones, expensive and inexpensive phones, and phones with varying performance.
