According to an Ofcom report, smartphones have overtaken laptops as the most popular device for getting online in the UK. 
Smartphone use stats
Ofcom's 2015 Communications Market Report finds that a third (33%) of internet users see their smartphone as the most important device for going online, compared to 30% who are said their laptop was still their primary method of browsing the web.

Similarly, two thirds of people now own a smartphone and use it for nearly two hours every day to browse the internet, access social media, bank and shop online.

The rise in smartphone use marks a shift since 2014, when just 22% turned to their phone first for internet, and 40% preferred their laptop.

According to Ofcom, this shift is due to the increase take-up of 4G mobile broadband, providing faster online access. During 2014, 4G subscriptions leapt from 2.7 million to 23.6 million in the UK alone.
