This Is the Percentage of People Who Use Smartphones in Nigeria (According to Google).

Google’s Connected Consumer Study is a platform under the Think with Google initiative that provides key insights about audiences, consumer trends and technology shifts in the market.

 

Not only did the latest report reveal the percentage of people who use Smartphones in Nigeria, it also revealed the Internet penetration in the country as well as other insights.  According to the study, only 23% of Nigerians use computers in 2017. What’s more is the fact that only 53% of Nigerians use smartphones, this number is lower than South Africa’s 60% but higher than Kenya’s 43%.

The report further reveals the internet penetration in selected African countries:

Nigeria is at 63%.
Kenya is at 53%, and
South Africa at 65%.

Out of the 63%, only 23% of Nigerians access the Internet daily.

 

It’s no news that data gathering, especially in a country like ours, is a difficult task due to the different methodologies used in gathering data, which always leads to discrepancies in the results, but would you be inclined to go with Google’s results, or do you think the 53% should be a lot higher?

Creating history... One review at a time.

      Lol nice!!!!! but i think it’s lot higher than what they estimated!

    2. Well, I hope google understands that not everyone who uses smartphones uses google. Some ladies only get their phone for pics, facebook and instagram (tey don’t even have a gmail account).

      Still, it might not be far from the truth.

      … WELL, SOMEHOW, I WILL BELIEVE THAT THE SURFACE MAY ALMOST BE REVEALING THE REAL DEAL. FOR THE SMARTPHONE 📱, I MAY WANT TO TOTALLY TAKE THAT. BUT I BELIEVE THE NUMBER WILL CONTINUE TO GROW…

      “only 53% of Nigerians use smartphones… Internet penetration in:

      Nigeria is at 63%.
      Out of the 63%, only 23% of Nigerians access the Internet daily.”

      I saw many other articles saying Kenya’s internet penetration is higher than Nigeria’s. Even Rwanda, South Africa & few others are higher than Nigeria in those articles.

      Apart from that, the users rate isn’t a surprise to me.

    8. i think Nigerians use the internet more than any country in Africa. Aside population, Nigerians check the internet now more than ever.

      At least the percentage of nigeria is not that bad because i believe that nigeria will defitnetly beat the said percentage because the rate at which nigerians are just using the internet is rapidly everywhere in the country,so i wonder why google will up with this result,and as for me i dont think i will go with this google’s result am gonna fusther investigate on this.

    10. hussaini says:

      Despite Nigerians population it doesn’t means that other Countries internet penetration rate is higher than that of nigerian, even the said called people who are involved in tweaking(cheat) the internet will also make the internet rate decreseas so as to be shown publicly, so i won’t be suprised over this issue.

    11. 23% of Nigerians using Smartphone?

      Well I guess these where the individuals that refused to head to the widely accepted act of buying Smartphones for their girlfriends and then using Nokia touch phones

      Kudos guys, you really tried.
