If your potential clients are mobile phone users, it’s extremely helpful to understand how they’re using their phones, and how they hope to in the future. Tap into your user psyche with a little data on mobile phone usage.
Here are 2 recent and thorough studies of smartphone user behavior:

Which Report Should You Use?
If your time (or attention span) is of the essence, I suggest the GSMArena report. At least the cool infographic. It may be slightly more indicative of the average mobile phone user. Three times the amount of participants offered data, and it is a bit more recent than Google’s.
However, if your users are mostly smartphone owners, Google’s survey is more niche-based and might provide more targeted info.
Plus its a video so you can play with your smartphone while watching.
