Number of smartphone users in Germany 2009-2019

The number of smartphone users in Germany has only grown in recent years, amounting to 57.7 million smartphone owners in 2018. In 2009, this number was 6.3 million. The figures speak for themselves.

Android in the lead

Mobile devices have taken the world by storm since they arrived on the market and today daily life is practically unimaginable without them. However, at the same time studies are conducted to determine the effect prolonged usage has on health. Since the coronavirus (COVID-19) has been declared a pandemic and countries all over the world practice quarantine and social distancing, relying on smartphones for interpersonal communication has increased dramatically. Android phones were considerably more popular with German consumers than iOs.

Not cheap

In recent years, the sales volume of smartphones in Germany has decreased, amounting to 23 million devices sold in 2019. This may also be due to rising prices. In 2019, on average, a new smartphone cost 492 euros.
