A few key facts from the study are as follows:

On Smartphones

On feature phones:

II. A big revelation has been that almost 85% feature phone users do not intend to switch to smartphones on their next purchase indicating that the functional benefits of feature phones combined with their durability, battery life and ease of repair were highly coveted by these users.

The Mobile  Marketing Association chairman D Shivakumar said, ?A thorough understanding of the differential usage and consumer segments that are using smartphones and feature phones will only help marketers use their monies more efficiently. While most designing and applications  are  being  targeted  at  smartphones,  this  report  is  a  wake-up  call.  Today,  the  mobile  is undeniably the closest we can get to our consumers, and it is this that will help marketers seek to understand ? and leverage ? a consumer?s path to purchase.?

?With the advent of 4G, reduced data costs and free voice and SMS, we expect to see even more rapid changes in the mobile landscape. It is, therefore, important to keep a continuous pulse on the way consumers interact with and use their mobile phones. Along with MMA, we at Kantar IMRB have embarked on a journey to help marketers understand the impact of these changes and to identify emerging trends. The Smartphone and Feature phone reports are a step in this direction ? providing an unbiased and insightful view on the evolution of mobile usage in India,? Kantar IMRB SVP Hemant Mehta added.

The report enables all members of the ecosystem to stay updated with consumer mobile trends and media consumption  habits.  Also  at  the  same  time,  it  elaborates  the  role  of  mobile  as  an  influencer  in  the consumer path-to-purchase.
