Is Watching Films and TV on Smartphones Popular?

Share this Article

For a lot of people around the world, it’s far more convenient to just whip out their smartphone to watch their favourite television shows and movies on their preferred streaming sites rather than watch from a television. According to several reports, more people than ever before are using their smartphones to watch their favourite films and television shows. 

Here are some of the main reasons why watching films and TV shows from a smartphone is now so popular. 

Do people prefer watching films and TV shows on smartphones or television?

According to a growing number of recent reports, more people choose to watch their favourite television shows and films on a smartphone than ever before. However, it seems as though people still prefer to watch their favourite content on a television or at the cinema. If you’re sitting on a bus, down at the park, or perhaps on your lunch break, you can’t just switch on the TV or go down to your local cinema to watch your favourite films and TV shows, though. 

This is where smartphones come in. Smartphones are a convenient alternative to watching from television or at the cinema. You can’t just pull a television out of your back pocket like you can a smartphone, and you can’t just book a cinema ticket and walk in to watch a film at 2 am. However, with a smartphone, it doesn’t matter what time of day it is or where you are. A smartphone is always there for you. 

Thanks to smartphones, you can now watch TV shows and movies 24 hours per day if you really wanted to, and from pretty much any location. With this in mind, you can see why so many people are choosing to watch from their smartphones. It’s just way more convenient. 

Some of today’s best movie streaming sites that you can visit using a smartphone are Disney+, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Hulu. These popular apps are free to download; mobile betting app downloads, as well as Spotify, TikTok, Instagram, Facebook Messenger, and Twitter are easy to find in the Google app store or from the relevant app owner’s website. 

What are the downsides of watching from your smartphone?

The only three real downsides to watching films and television shows from a smartphone are the obvious differences. For example, a smartphone screen is much smaller than a television. The average size of a SmartTV is usually around 42, 50, 44, 65, or 75 inches. In comparison, the LG G5 smartphone has a pixel size of 1,440 x 2,560 and a 480 x 853 viewport. 

The One Plus 3 smartphone has a pixel size of 1,080 x 1,920 and a 480 x 853 viewport. The Samsung Galaxy S9+ has a pixel size of 1,440 x 2,960 and a 360 x 750 viewport. An iPhone 8 Plus has a pixel size of 1,080 x 1,920 and a 414 x 736 viewport, and a Google Pixel 4 XL has a pixel size of 1,440 x 869 and 412 x 869 viewport. 

Traditionally, most people prefer to watch on a much bigger screen, but more and more people are increasingly switching to watching things from their smartphones rather than from a television screen. Watching on a much smaller screen also compromises the sound quality, plus you also can’t enjoy watching in a group with friends/family when using a smartphone.

Some of the most popular television series you can watch on a smartphone in 2022 include The Sandman, Blackbird, Stranger Things, Ther Terminal List, Uncoupled, Pieces of Her, Inventing Anna, The Lincoln Lawyer, Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power, Mo, and Night Sky.
