UK consumers spend almost seven hours a day using technology devices outside of work.

On average a domestic home has 19 technology devices, according to Samsung’s Techonomic Index, with UK households spending £218 each on devices over the last three months.

It stated the UK spends £73 less per household than the European average of £291 over three months, while Italy was ranked as the biggest technology spenders with a £444 spend.

Brits spend four hours and seven minutes watching TV and DVDs, and two hours and 30 minutes on personal computers during their spare time.

The index revealed that using mobile apps was the most popular activity among Brits, with 66 per cent of adults stating they use their mobile to access apps, gaming being the most popular app of choice.

Adoption of ‘Bring Your Own Device’ policies has stalled, as ‘Choose Your Own Device’ grows in the industry, IDC has said.

Speaking at Microsoft’s Business Transformed event, John Delaney, head of IDC’s European mobility team, stated: “BYOD has taken off to quite some extent in the US, and for a while it looked as though it was going to take off in Europe as well.

“[However,] compared to a year ago, the percentage of enterprises that do not plan to have a BYOD policy is about the same. What we’re not seeing is a significant amount of new companies intending to adopt BYOD.”

IDC’s bi-annual survey of the enterprise sector found that in the first half of 2014, a third (36 per cent) of businesses currently offer a BYOD policy, with a further quarter (23 per cent) planning to begin offering a policy in the next 18 months.

In the same survey conducted at the start of 2013, only a marginally higher proportion of companies (44 per cent) said that they had no such plans.
