Phone Photos

It is estimated that 1.2 trillion digital photos will be taken this year. Almost 85% of them will be taken by phones, the rest by cameras and tablets. This compares with 200 billion digital photos taken by phones during 2011.

More than 3.5 trillion photos have been taken as of 2012 since Daguerre captured his first picture during 1826. More pictures are taken every two minutes than were taken throughout all of the 1800s. According to Deloitte, 3.5 million photos were shared every minute during 2016.
