It was found in early 2014 that almost three in four Hispanics (the actual figure was 72%) owned a mobile device. Fast forward almost five months to now and not only will you likely see similar results, but you will also likely see that stats such as 60% of Hispanics use their mobiles for web browsing are outdated and probably lower figures than the actual values. You may also see that the phone choice on the market is somewhat more complicated – due to the influx of advanced smart phones that are currently available. There is however, one phone that stands out as a logistical option for not only Hispanics – who were found to have high levels of browsing – but for anyone on the planet; The HTC One M8. Given that 93% of US Hispanics were said to use a mobile device regularly back in 2011 – before any of the technology breakthroughs that are now in place within mobile and smart devices – that number will only have increased over the past few years and this particular demographic is no doubt an important factor when designing a mobile phone in today’s day and age – and the One M8 is no different.
