The 12 Most Popular Ways College Students Use Smartphones

College students love their smartphones. They use them in a myriad of ways and there’s the data to prove it. A new infographic visualizes the current state of smartphone usage by college students and it’s a sight to see. The infographic below from Online Degrees shows the 12 most popular ways students are using smartphones as well as the types of news they’re reading, and more.

The standout statistic to me, though, is that nearly half of college students are using feature phones. In other words, not smartphones. You’d think from all the buzz around smartphones (Apple and Android sell a bajillion phones a second it seems) that there would be a higher number of smartphone users on campus.

    What stat most surprises me? The stat that doesn’t appear on here at all. According to this, college students are all interested in the news. Facebook, Twitter and Youtube.. I bet they spend 90% of their time on those three apps/sites.
