WD has also released the results of a study relating to the storage needs of Indian smartphone users, commisioned by it and conducted by Access Media International. 1458 users across 14 cities contributed to the report. 84 percent of respondents said they spend more than four hours on their smartphones each day, and 90 percent expect to spend increasing amounts of time on their smartphones over the next year.

Lack of adequate storage was the second biggest challenge that users reported as affecting smartphone performance, behind bandwidth but ahead of battery drain. 88 percent have more than 10 apps on their phones. Social media apps are their highest priority, followed by music and video download apps, utilities, camera-related apps and then music and video streaming apps.

Around 65 percent of respondents had less than 16GB of storage on their smartphones, and 90 percent share content primarily via the Internet. When running out of space, the first thing that most users do is delete apps and even data, rather than moving it to another device.
