It is in Indonesia that web users spend the most time on their smartphones, with average mobile use exceeding five hours a day. In Europe, users in the UK lead the way with over three hours’ mobile use per day.

According to the App Annie “State of Mobile 2021” report, web users spent an average 4hrs 12mins per day on their smartphones in 2020, a figure that's up 20% compared to last year.

Mobile use tends to be highest in developing countries, often topping four hours a day. In Europe and North America, daily usage levels fall mostly between 2hrs 30mins and 3hrs 30mins. In any case, smartphone use has shot up in 2020. The pandemic and the various lockdowns and restrictions affecting most global regions undoubtedly had a role to play in this rise.
