Smartphones have passed out laptops as the most popular device for going online.

The research from British watchdog Ofcom, says that people are using their smartphones for nearly two hours every day.

Phones are being used to browse websites, access social media, bank accounts and online stores.

This is the first year that smartphones have overtaken laptops.

Tech journalist John McCann says that nowadays, smartphones are everything:

"We live in a world where we want to know what's going on right now. We don't want to wait until our laptop's booted up."

Larger devices are still needed because some programmes don't work as well on smartphones. Despite this, smartphones are showing no signs of dying down:

"Smartphones are going to continue to rise in popularity. We're seeing PCs and laptops declining, as people want that on the move portability from their devices."
