The survey of over 1,500 consumers aged 18 to 34 in the UK, France and Germany revealed that handsets were far more important to the daily lives of millennials than laptops (61%), PCs (38%), tablets (27%) and video game systems (22%). In addition, some 71 percent of respondents anticipate running their household from their phone or computer within the next five years.
