UK: smartphone ownership by age from 2012-2018

by Statista Research Department, last edited May 1, 2016
Smartphone ownership by age in the UK 2012-2018 This statistic illustrates the penetration of smartphone ownership in the United Kingdom (UK) from 2013 to 2018, by age. In 2017, 95 percent of respondents aged between 16 and 24 reported owning a smartphone. Smartphones are mobile phones that contain an operating system with features of a personal computer. In the late 2000s smartphones started to become much more wide spread. The technological advances that have been made since then are impressive to say the least. New features are available with every new smartphone model that comes out, and the majority of smartphone owners report purchasing a new smartphone because their current device is out of date.
Although smartphones have brought the power of information to the general population at their fingertips, they have also brought some negative effects with them. Accidents while driving have been on the rise, although the vast majority of motorists believe it is unacceptable to even take a short look at a phone while driving.
