Croatians spend an average of five hours a day on their smart phone, according to a Masterindex survey conducted by Improve for Mastercard.
The survey found that 82 percent of Croats are satisfied with the current level of digitization, while as many as 67 percent of residents use smartphones to pay their bills. In addition, we mostly use smartphones for online chat (84 percent), followed by email (82 percent), online shopping (81 percent), internet search (79 percent), social networks (74 percent), and online or mobile banking (64 percent).
Compared to last year's results, social networks are slightly less used and navigation, payment applications and video on demand more. Younger respondents use their smartphone above average, buy online more often, share photos, watch videos, listen to music, use payment apps, track sports, and get informed about travel and traffic.
Older respondents, on the other hand, make greater use of navigation, e-readers, Internet and mobile banking, e-mail, and Internet search, and more often view the weather.
Mobile phones are mostly used by young people between the ages of 18 and 29, with an average of five and a half hours a day, but still less used by older people.
