This statistic displays a forecast of the development in smartphone user numbers in the United Kingdom (UK) from 2015 to 2022. In 2022, the number of monthly active smartphone users is projected to grow steadily and reach 53.96 million individuals. This would be an increase of over 12 million new users from 41.09 million users in 2015. As smartphone manufacturers continue to implement more innovative features, the use of these features is also starting to rise. By 2016, a total of 12 percent of users were using the voice assistant in the UK in 2016, and another 21 percent were using the fingerprint identity verification method to log into their devices.
Furthermore, the main factor consumers are taking into consideration when making a decision about purchasing a new smartphone is the price, while the main reason for purchasing a new smartphone is that the consumers current device is out of date.
