Smartphones have become part of our daily lives. We rely on our phones to make our day-to-day routine easier and more convenient. According to the Pew Research Center, more than 68% of United States adults have a smartphone. This number continues to rise as smartphones become more and more affordable. According to MarketingCharts.com Washington, D.C. tops the list for both smartphones and tablet ownership. ZAGG Phone Repair always keeps tabs on the latest statistics and news regarding smartphone trends. Here are the most recent numbers regarding smartphones in the Washington, D.C. area.
Watch Out iPhone
The latest trends in smart phone ownership are with Android phones. While the iPhone is still incredibly popular, the lack of new innovative products combined with the limitations of iOS has helped Android move ahead in the market share. If you are looking for a new smartphone, you may want to consider an Android platform, as the phones tend to be more affordable when compared to the hefty price tag of an iPhone.
More Repairs, Fewer Replacements
One significant trend we have seen in the Washington, D.C. area is more and more smartphone owners are repairing their phones rather than purchasing an entirely new phone. Repairs can now be much more affordable and are generally a smarter choice rather than spending hundreds of dollars on a brand-new phone. We believe this trend is not only a reflection on Americans having less money to spend but also people are recognizing the benefit of paying for cheap repairs.
