50% of time Indian users pick up their phones out of habit: ReportFebruary 12, 2024New Delhi, Feb 12 (IANS) One out of two (50 per cent) times Indian users pick up their phones without knowing why they fired up their smartphone, a new report revealed on Monday.
According to the global management consulting firm Boston Consulting Group (BCG), a typical smartphone user picks up the phone 70-80 times a day.”In our research, we have seen about 50 per cent of the time consumers do not have clarity on why they pick up the phone — they do it out of habit,” said Kanika Sanghi, Lead – Centre for Customer Insights India.The findings in the report are based on actual clicks/swaps data of over 1,000 users and in-depth consumer interviews conducted across India.Moreover, the report found that 45-50 per cent of the time consumers are very clear on the task to be accomplished, and 5-10 per cent of the time consumers have partial clarity.”Smartphones are evolving — the recent spate of discussions in media and at industry events on themes like ‘AI on device’ or ‘app-less experience through Gen AI’ is a testament to that evolution,” said Nimisha Jain, Senior Partner and Managing Director at BCG.The report also mentioned that Indian smartphone users love to stream video content (short-form/long-form) as 50-55 per cent of their time is spent on streaming apps, while socialising (texts/calls), shopping, searching (for information on travel, jobs, hobbies etc.) and gaming.–IANSshs/prwhttps://ians.in/detail/50-of-time-indian-users-pick-up-their-phones-out-of-habit-report–20240212164205/
