223 Mobile ‘Search Field’ Examples

with UX annotations by Baymard researchers

What’s this? Here you’ll find 223 “Mobile: Search Field” full-page screenshots annotated with research-based UX insights, sourced from Baymard’s UX benchmark of 93 e-commerce sites. (Note: this is less than 1% of the full research catalog.)

In testing we observe that the design of the search field itself directly alters if and how users search on an e-commerce site. The design of the search field often differs significantly on the mobile site, compared to the desktop site. On mobile sites the search field is often collapsed behind a search icon or located within the mobile ‘hamburger’ main menu, whereas on desktop the search field is typically directly visible in the page header.
