All other age groups use their mobiles differently. Other age groups use their phones for more productive activities, such as directions (76% Gen Z vs 86% other ages) or email (86% Gen Z vs 73% other ages), but Gen Z is more likely to use mobiles to entertain themselves. Gen Z is more likely to use their phones to watch short videos and messages, listen to music and watch TV or movies than other age groups (78% Gen Z as compared to 64% others), and to play music (78% Gen Z as compared to 64% others).
