People use hundreds of dollars mobile phones for basic tasks that a fraction of that phone makes perfect. This was indicated some time ago by the global survey conducted by GSMA, an organization of mobile operators and related companies globally.
It doesn’t even install an app or game
This is not new. Previously, similar information was seen stating that a large percentage of people did not even install an application or game on their smartphone. In this case, the result of the GSMA study stated that 47% of people use them mobile phones for calls and messages EXCLUSIVE. This survey was conducted in 56 regions around the world, which is equivalent to 80% of the world’s population.
Technology is obviously not obvious to humans. The high percentage of people who do not exploit the capabilities of smartphones will not diminish soon. The GSMA estimates that this number will be reduced to 29% in just 2030.
In the survey, people were classified into four categories based on their answers. For example, the «speakers» were those 47% of people who used mobile phone for calls and messages no more. The opposite side were the «Amateurs», ie those who interacted most with their smartphones. The rest were somewhere in the middle, in the Pragmatists and Networkers categories.
There were other interesting data that resulted from this analysis. For example, in some countries, such as South Korea, people between the ages of 51 and 69 accounted for 1/4 of all smartphone users. The United States, Qatar and South Korea were the countries where people interacted most with their mobile phones. The use of SMS has continued to be a priority communication channel in these countries, above other messaging systems.
You do not have to go far to confirm this data. Just think of household members to realize that smartphones are probably offered a basic use of calls and messages. Or at least it can be so most of the time.
