How much time per day do you spend playing games on your Android device? If you live in the US, you might say just shy of an hour. In Germany or Russia it might be somewhere between 40 and 50 minutes. In the UK, you are playing just a little over a half hour’s worth of mobile games per day. Italians, though, spend about 38 minutes per day gaming on their phone. That figure isn’t far off from the global average of 37 minutes, as determined by mobile app analytics firm Flurry.



Flurry based their calculations on data collected from 60,000 Android smartphones and tablets, determining that US gamers spend by far the most time playing on their mobile devices. Surprisingly, both South Korea and China, locales known for their large communities of gamers, came in below the global average.

Crunching further data, Flurry shed some light on the types of games we like to play on our Androids, finding that Arcade/Action and Casual titles held the most appeal. Sports games and cards/casino titles tended to rank the lowest on a regional basis.

The full report features several more interesting insights, further breaking down our regional gaming preferences. There is little doubt that gaming is a huge area of interest for mobile users and developers alike, and Flurry’s data seems only to back up that notion.
