Nigerians spent on average more than three hours a day on their smartphones last year – more time than any other nationality – as people in Africa continue to rely heavily on their phones for basic Internet access, according to a recent study by Millward Brown AdReaction.
People who owned a smartphone in the economically booming country spent on average 193 minutes using them a day, more than Saudi Arabians and Indonesians, who came in second and third in the rankings.
The remaining top ten countries were the Philippines (4), Kenya (4), China (6), Vietnam (7), Thailand (8), Argentina (9) and Colombia (10).
Surprisingly, the USA came in 13th spot while Australia took the number 18 position on the global list.
The French placed last out of the thirty nations surveyed, said Millward Brown.
