Infographic shows more women own smartphones than men
The smartphone market is quickly moving towards maturity and this latest infographic summarizing stats from the United Kingdom is a good illustration. Smartphones are penetrating people of all demographics and age, with more women owning a smartphone in the UK and more people in their mid forties to seventies owning a smart handset.

In only a couple of years smartphone penetration surged from 38% in 2010 to 60% in 2013. Interestingly, while in 2010 the survey showed that 63% of smartphone owners were men, now that has changed and there are more women owning a smartphone, 58%, according to the infographic below made by eDigitalResearch and IMRG.

There is a lot of other interesting facts showing how smartphones become truly universal and widespread among all kinds of people in the United Kingdom. Take a look below.

Or, the majority of those are iPhones for small hands....

Another take on the data is that I doubt a majority of Phablets are owned by women, for the same reason (small hands).

because men can find luxury life on simpler phone, but women find luxury life only on smartphone.

Right... I get surprise when I see a woman with a Galaxy Nexus, or maybe the S3 in hand... They usually go for the S3 Mini, midrange galaxies, iPhone or a Sony

I'm kind of amazed at all the mysoginistic comments. I knew the calibur of PhoneArena's commenters is pretty low but yeash.

But that doesn't make those women smart. Still you need to supplement them with your ideas.
