Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio’s Hardware team said; “With the increasing trend for information, people are demanding more-advanced devices that offer ease of operation and flexibility in terms of usage. Thus, the development of networking will assist the growth of the Smartphone market in the US. On the other hand, if feature phones offered better display and flexibility than smartphones, this could result in a decline in the growth rate of the Smartphone market in the US.”
