According to the predicton of no 1 smartphone e-brand Huawei honor, this summer the holiday-makers are going to spend up to a staggering 35 hours a week on their smartphone.Most residents of KSA will spend upwards of an hour a day taking pictures, with more than one third spending between 41 minutes to an hour a day checking and responding messages.
Smartphones have changed the lifestyle of people completely because it has become the essential device for them in every place especially in traveling.It has also been predicted that eight in ten people in Saudi Arabia believe their smartphone is more essential, exhibiting how important a consumer’s device is as part of their lifestyle.
Chris Sunbaigong, VP of Huawei honor Middle East said:
“The fact that holiday-makers will spend nearly an entire working week on their smartphones even surprised us. What doesn’t surprise us however, is how important smartphones are as an extension of people’s lifestyles, and after all, KSA is set to be the first ‘mobile first’ country in the world.”
UAE and KSA holiday-makers are having a substantial difference in smartphone behaviour, suggested by Huawei honor research.It pointed out that people in KSA on holidays use their phones for calls, however taking photos was also the number one in terms of usage.In UAE apart from taking photos, they used their smartphone to check and post on social media.
Sunbaigong continued, “At Huawei honor everything we do is for the benefit of the end-user, whether it is specs, camera or appearance, we take note of what they actually want and use on a daily basis. We know how important the smartphone camera is to our end-users, which is why our devices are geared towards taking great shots on the go – meaning there is literally no excuse for a bad photo. In fact, our upcoming smartphone launch will really showcase this in abundance so watch this space.”
