Google released a survey recently which states that Brazil has 27 million users of smartphones, surpassing France, with 25 million and Germany with 24 million.
The study, called Our Planet Mobile — which interviewed customers in 40 countries — says that 42% of Brazilian users access the Internet on smartphones daily. Of these, 50% do web searches by phone and 80% access social networks on their devices.
While using smartphones, 21% of Brazilians watch videos daily, according to the survey and one in four prefer to go without television than in having the device. Over 70% do not leave home without their device.
The survey shows that 80% of respondents have already researched products or services by phone and 55% of them have already made purchases — 31% directly on the device. And more than half of Brazilians who own smartphones make online purchases on their phones at least once a month.
