The study explored what respondents were using their mobile devices for, and found that in the last 1-2 years, ANZ residents had begun banking (43 per cent), scanning documents (43 per cent) and checking traffic/navigating (42 per cent).
Most commonly, ANZ residents continue to use their smartphones to send a text (69 per cent), make a voice call (53 per cent), check or post to social media (49 per cent), listen to a podcast (35 per cent) or compose an email message (34 per cent).
