The study showed that Indonesians with smartphones spend on average 181 minutes using them a day, more than any other nationality.
Filipinos and Chinese came in second and third respectively, using their smartphones on average 174 minutes and 170 minutes a day.
On the other end of the spectrum, the study showed that the Hungarians and French spend the least amount of time on smartphones with only 90 minutes and 79 minutes a day, respectively.
Russia, Spain, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, France and the United Kingdom, also ranked near the bottom of the list.
