Global Mobile Phone Users Statistics You Should Know

We are now in the so-called “Smartphone Revolution”, as many would like to call this phenomenon. People and their smartphones have become inseparable. Gone are the days when it’s okay to forget your phone at home. Gone are the days when you don’t even care much about them. Nowadays, everything is right at the palm of your hand: games, news, entertainment, social media, etc.

Here are afew fun facts about mobile users according to top researches and surveys:

· Users, regardless of their generation, tend to text more. The number of text messages being sent in a day is around three times more than that of phone calls.

· A third of today’s mobile gamers are older than 45.

· Up to this day, Apple has sold over 180 million iPhone units all over the world.

· 95% of young adults (18-24 years old) own a mobile phone.

· There are approximately 5 billion mobile phones and 20% of which are smart phones.

The facts above only show how dependent the present world is on the existence of mobile phones.

There are over 7.2 billion people in the world today and a rough total of 3.6 billion are unique mobile phone users. 50% of the world’s population have phones. Everyday there are over 750,000 new users penetrating the statistics.

READ: Make Your Android Mobile Phone Faster and Responsive

From 2007 to 2014, 967.78 million smart phones were sold globally to the growing number of consumers, reaping a hefty sum of $264.75 in total revenue.

Let’s delve just a little bit into the Samsung vs. Apple statistics. Without a doubt, both are incredibly competent companies. Samsung, with its Android operating system, has a more universal layout and a wider range of possibilities. Apple, on the other hand, is known for its exclusivity and design. Apple users have less access to third party features. Nevertheless, the company seems to have a cult following. Up to this day, Apple has sold over 180 million iPhone units all over the world.

Samsung has always been in the lead in terms of sales and number of units shipped. However, since the launch of Apple’s iPhone 6 last year, these figures have dramatically plummeted. A staggering 74.4 million iPhones were sold during the Christmas quarter. In the previous years, the sales of iPhone units gradually went down. It’s a different scenario this year. The iPhone 6 sales are still at its peak and what’s even more menacing to Apple’s rivals is that many more Samsung/Android users have taken the shift to Apple. Needless to say, Apple has really done it this time.

It is truly undeniable how the birth of mobile phones has revolutionized the world’s overall communication channel. Mobile phones have now become even more powerful because of the advancement of the internet. All corners of the globe can now get connected with the presence of these slender handheld devices that have taken the world by storm. It is expected that as more mobile phone innovations come up, the extent of benefits and progressions will multiply tenfold.

Top Reasons To Choose A Career In IT

Even if you've never considered yourself a person interested in computers, technology and programming, think again, because there is a plethora of reasons to get in touch with the field. Here are some of the top ones regarding a career in the IT sector (in no particular order).

Choose A Career In IT


Remember the old division into male and female jobs? Well, a good thing about the IT sector is that this old rule is now null and void. While on the one hand some of the best companies are run by men, some of the best programmers they hire are women, and vice versa. So if you like it, just go for it, and the results may surprise you.

We all need it

No matter what you decide to do in life, no matter the career you choose, the reality is we all need computers nowadays. Or mobile phones, while we are at it. So if there is something we are going to live with anyway, we should get to know it better.

A significant income

Once you start with IT it is difficult to stop, and your pay check is definitely something that will keep you going every month. And the more you work, the more income you will end up having, since programming jobs are notoriously time-consuming.

It can be learned

Any new skill can be learned, and IT is no exception. At times it may seem difficult, at other times it might be a piece of cake, however, what is certain is that it is always a challenge. In fact, in the recent years more and more schools and universities started offering study programmes in computer sciences and programming, as the market is blooming with job offers, so getting an ict degree is a way of ensuring one’s future.

Lack of experts with the needed knowledge and skills

The more something is popular, the more people want to do it, but not as many become true experts. Therefore, each and every new programmer has an opportunity to fill that gap by specialising in one or two, or even several, branches of the trade.

It offers numerous possibilities

Don't think of IT as one single profession, because that's not true. Web programmer, database administrator, web designer, applications engineer, web developer, system administrator, application support analyst, data quality manager, and software quality assurance analyst are just some of the dozens of the most wanted job titles in IT sector. And the list gets longer and longer every day.

It can be pursued from home

Working in an office, some days it may be a real nag to get out of bed, let alone leave the house and head through traffic jams twice a day. Well, with a career in IT, this no longer holds true, because all you need to work is a computer, and you can finish your job from wherever you are. That means it is easy to base your office at home and not waste any more time on transport, provided that your company allows this kind of deals.

It is the future

By the time the students who enrol on their studies this year graduate, many of the jobs they specialised for will no longer exist, but it is encouraging that as many as double of that number will most likely appear. This offers many opportunities and the sooner we realise this, the better. We all see how much computers and mobile phones influence our daily lives, but we are barely aware of how much are they changing our future. Prospects for careers in IT rise on a daily basis, so why not grab one of the chances? You may turn out better than you thought!

The debate concerning employee monitoring

Some issues are the sort which can never reach a conclusion despite the amount of times they may be debated. One such issue is that of employee monitoring. People on both sides of the debate do have their own opinions and reasons and both sides are in all honesty seen as having valid concerns. Here are some of the viewpoints of those on both sides of the debate.

From the point of view of the employer, they see themselves as providing employees with a way to earn their living. When their business is concerned at the end of the day, their reputation and money are seen to be on the link which is why for every employer, employees who are honest and hardworking are valuable assets. Such kinds of employees however are difficult to come by and one mistake on the part of the employee can cause the entire business to come crumbling down. Employees could be sharing valuable and confidential information with other businesses or they could be spending their time chatting with their friends or browsing the internet when they should actually be working. Doing so can cause the employer and his company a lot of money and in such a situation, it is best to allow employers to monitor their employees to make sure that they are carrying out their duties and are behaving in an appropriate manner.

From the point of view of the employee, having their computer or cell phone monitored by the employer is something which is seen as infringing on privacy. No one wishes for their personal information to be kept under scrutiny and for it to be observed which is why this is seen to be a valid concern. Employers should however only monitor work related activities of their employees and not monitor their personal ones. If an employee attempts at doing their personal work while at office, then it can be argued that it is their fault if the employer gets his hands on their personal information which they would rather not have had revealed to anyone. Anyhow, the pint of view of the employee too is something which is easy to be seen and understood.

Having seen both sides of the argument and the perspective of both the parties involved, which of the two is right? It can be said that both sides are considered to be valid and the best answer to the question about who is right is to come to an answer which ensures that both parties are satisfied. Employee monitoring thus can be implemented but as long as it is kept within limits. Cell phones monitoring software’s can also be installed in employee’s cell phones by the employer but at the same time employees should be made aware of the fact that the cell phone is being monitored. By making them aware, they could be discouraged to make use of the device for personal work or even from misusing it thereby keeping peace between both the parties.
