Have you ever wondered just what most people do with their mobile phones? Well, chances are that a lot of them are doing the same types of things that you’re doing. But some are probably doing entirely different things. Let’s take a look at what the stats say about how people are using their phones and what most people around the world want them for in the first place.

General phone uses

If you’re using a smartphone you have a number of advanced features that it can do, but we’ll get to those in a moment. First, let’s talk about the basic uses for a phone, and those include a digital camera, an audio or video recorder and text messaging. These are some of the most common uses that people have for their mobile phones, partially because they’re useful for both regular mobile and smartphone devices. As are multimedia messages.

Smartphone features

When it comes to using a smartphone, however, many people have entirely different uses for the device. These include internet browsing, playing games, participating in lotteries from other countries, using apps and even using the device for checking on documents or watching TV. In fact, there are a number of things that a smartphone can do. It’s nearly as versatile as a computer, but even more portable than a laptop.

Top apps for smartphone devices

It should come as no surprise that some of the top apps downloaded for 2020 were social media apps. These include TikTok, Zoom, WhatsApp, Facebook, Facebook Messenger, Instagram, Google Meet and Google Classroom. After all, this year the focus was on apps that would let you stay connected and those that allowed students of all ages to stay connected with their online classroom.

When it comes to games, however, there are even more popular options. For example, PUBG Mobile is the most popular mobile game in the world, hitting number 1 in 100 different countries. Call of Duty: Mobile is another highly popular one, as is Game of Thrones: Beyond the Wall, Tom Clancy’s Elite Squad, Minecraft: Pocket Edition, Stranger Things: The Game, and more. It seems that the games that are taking the top spots are primarily first person games that are relatively popular in the traditional gaming world as well.

Choosing the best games and apps for your smartphone is definitely going to be a personal preference. It all depends on just what you use your device for and how you want to use it, but if you want to try out some of the most popular options, you definitely know what those are now and you can start checking them out for yourself. Don’t miss out on having some fun with something entirely new, like international lotteries. You never know what you might decide you really want to try.
