“Roughly 50 percent of men and 37 percent of women using the internet for online shopping own a smart phone,” Michal Osuský, director of NMS Market Research, wrote in a press release in late September.
The 16-to-30-year-old age group dominates the smart phone market. The most popular brand for smart phones in Slovakia is Samsung, which accounts for roughly 13 percent of people shopping online, while about 4 percent of respondents own an Apple iPhone, Kamil Demuth, project manager of Heureka.sk, specified.
