It would be impossible to go about our daily lives without our smartphones. They are changing our world in unimaginable ways, and ushering in new ways to go about our daily activities. It often seems impossible to imagine the vast number of smartphones, mobile apps and activity taking place every day on our devices. 25% of  internet users access the internet through their mobile devices, and by the end of 2015, there will be 2 billion smartphone users on the planet. In 2014, the number of mobile devices will exceed 7.7 billion, which is almost 600 million more devices than  human beings, on the planet.

In this infographic from PennyStocksLab, the sheer statistics present a clear picture of the golden mobile age we currently live in:

  • There are 1.4 billion smartphones on the planet and just 2 billion PCs. 1.8 million smartphones are sold every day, which is 5 times more than as many children born per day.
  • Social networking activity goes on at a breathtaking pace every day, with 3 billion Facebook likes, along with 380 million tweets, added daily.
  • A staggering 189 million apps are downloaded daily, which is five times more than the data uploaded to Facebook every day.
  • A mind-boggling 27 billion SMS, and 610 million MMS are sent every day.
  • The average American spends 3.3 hours a day on their smartphone, which is twice more than the amount of time spent eating , and over 1/3 rd of the time spent sleeping and working each day.
  • TV and mobile apps are competing fiercely for user attention.The average consumer spends 127 minutes a day on mobile apps and 168 minutes in watching television.
  • 75% of Americans bring their phones to the bathroom, while 88% use their mobile device while watching TV.
  • 191 billion e-mails are sent and received every day, which is more mail than the US postal service processes in one entire year.

This increased mobile usage is not without side-effects. Already, 12.5% of the mobile population are addicted to their smartphones. Such mobile addicts check their apps at least 60 times a day. In another survey, 66% of respondents replied that they would not last a single day without their smartphones. Some research has even found that social media can be more addictive than  alcohol and smoking.
