The infographic below demonstrates the true impact smartphones have had on Japanese consumers.

Among the countries favorite activities is browsing the web (78% of users) and a worldwide leading 59% of users share videos over their phones.

In fact, out of 18 top phone user categories Japan’s users ranked number one in 10 categories.
