Statistically, how much do we trust our cell phones? The news had come and turned out that we do trust our phones. We are aware of modern progress, and it turns out that we can do with our phones almost anything, including paying bills and stuff in the market. In developed countries, 20 percent of consumers use mobile phones to pay things, according to research by consulting company Deloitte, which covered six continents, 31 countries, and 49,500 respondents, a representative sample of close to 70 percent of the total world population.
In emerging markets, about half of consumers (47 percent) said that they use their phone to pay at the store, and 65 percent of people are interested in using this technology, according to the Deloitte survey. Emphasizing the speed of procurement, China, which is mainly the money market, has during the last year become one of the countries that are adopted mobile payments in a very fast way since the use of these services in the country jumped by 66 percent. However, 40 percent of consumers worldwide do not want to use mobile payment applications, because they believe that this technology is not safe enough. The research results relating to the payment via mobile show some surprising data. For example, customers in technologically advanced countries, such as Germany, France and the United States, very reluctantly use mobile payment option, unlike the underdeveloped countries.
Lack of trust in the security of payments by phone, which is observed after the research, also shows that it is necessary to educate consumers, given the fact that these systems are often safer than traditional payment methods; it is estimated in the study. A number of customers in the world has their own mobile devices that are making this method work, according to Deloitte, and it continues to grow – 78 percent have a smartphone, almost 10 percent have the portable device, and more than 50 percent have a tablet. One-quarter of consumers, in developing countries, plans to purchase a portable device in the next 12 months. As far as individual countries, Singapore leads the world’s consumers who use mobile and wireless devices. Poland also ranks near the top in every category, with the USA, Australia, and Italy.
Almost all mobile phone users check the phones in the first three hours after awakening. In developing countries, 93 percent of users look at their phones in the first hour or less of awakening. Similarly, 14 percent of users from developing countries check their phones at least 100 times a day. Globally, the available mobile apps, consumers in the morning first check text messages and messaging applications. However, the voice service is still the most widely used applications in developing countries (76 percent), and it’s followed by text messages (74 percent). In America, the Wi-Fi is still the favorite method for connecting to the internet, while in Europe and Asia prefer mobile internet(4G network), according to the Deloitte study, conducted to gather information relating to the consumers behavior, trends and opinions on a wide range of wireless and mobile devices.
