In a new report, research company Nielsen reveals how consumers use mobile phones around the world.
Nielsen concluded that "usage differs significantly by market and demographic groups.
For example, the majority of mobile consumers in developed markets — such as South Korea (67%), Australia (65%) and the UK (61%) — tend to prefer smartphones.

Mid-range multimedia phones, which have more capabilities than feature phones but less than smartphones, are least popular among users, with less than 10% usage in most countries (at 21%, Brazil boasts the highest percentage of multimedia-phone users among those examined in Neilsen's report)...."
