Global Mobile Consumer Survey: U.S. Edition

Are U.S. consumers apathetic about apps? When it comes to smartphones, could bigger be better? How do consumers feel about the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) trend? When choosing a mobile device, how great a consideration is price?

The results aren’t what you might think – and keeping abreast of ever-changing consumer preferences is key to success in the fast-paced mobile ecosystem.

The 2013 edition of Deloitte’s Global Mobile Consumer Survey offers valuable insight into U.S. consumer behavior, purchasing habits and preferences. The survey, fielded by an independent research firm in July of 2013, takes the pulse of consumer sentiment across a broad range of mobile services, technologies and devices. In addition to providing U.S. information, the survey can help organizations better understand global consumer trends: the survey was fielded in 20 countries and encompasses the responses of nearly 38,000 consumers around the world.
