Share of people using a Samsung smartphone for business purposes in the U.S. 2018

Over 22 percent of people aged 30 to 49 use a Samsung smartphone for business in the United States, as of 2018. For adults under 30 the rate is 18 percent, and only 10 percent for people aged 50 years or older. Samsung products tend to use the Google Android operating system.

Smartphones in the United States

The majority of United States population owns a smartphone. Apple holds the largest market share out of all manufacturers, still benefitting from a first-mover advantage with the iPhone. However, a growing number of consumers are moving toward cheaper competitors, alternative operating systems, and manufacturers that offer more control over repair and modification. Samsung is one of the main beneficiaries of this shift.

Usage of smartphones

The leading smartphone apps are entertainment products, not business solutions. Many business users may benefit only from the additional email features, browser access, and generic scheduling apps that smartphones provide. That being said, with over 2 million apps available, business solutions are available for Samsung phones.
