Brazilians are becoming increasingly connected to the internet – and more familiarized with smartphones and tablets. Just five years ago, only 15 percent of Brazilian adults had a smartphone, a rate that has since jumped to 54 percent, according to a recent study published by the Pew Research Center.

This percentage has nearly doubled each year since 2013. In 2014, 24 percent of Brazilians were equipped with mobile phones connected to the internet. One year later, they amounted to 41 percent.
