Number of Smart Phone User in Bangladesh

The number of smartphone users is increasing rapidly in Bangladesh. According to the latest reports, there are 106,000,000 active mobile phone subscribers in Bangladesh, and roughly 95% of them are prepaid connection users. Nowadays postpaid users are increasing in a rapid way.

However, there is no official statistic for smartphone users. The proliferation of local, low-cost smartphones has changed the handset user dynamics over the last few years. Whereas Nokia had 80% market share even a few years ago, nowadays most new handset sales are going to Symphony, a local brand that gets handsets made and branded in China; closely followed by Samsung, Maximus, Micromax, Walton (another local brand) and a few other minor players.

 Apple and Nokia are here, but their contribution is very low. Demand for Smartphones in DhakaOthers- 20%Walton-13%Samsung-14%Symphony-53% As a rough estimate, we can assume that there are around 1 million smartphone users in Bangladesh.


The number of calls made and Expense: Around two-third of the total respondents said that daily approximate dialed call is 10 and below which includes mostly homemakers, students and service holders. Among businessmen, half of them said daily approximate dialed calls vary between11 to 20. Most of the students and homemakers spend between Tk.300/- to Tk. 1000/- monthly. 

Businessmen generally spend more money on payment of cell phone calls. Most of the respondents do not agree that cell phone expense curtails the demands of everyday need and expense for mobile phone is wastage.
