How Much Time Do We Really Spend On Our Smartphones?

Would it surprise you that the average person spends just under an hour per day on their smartphone?

If you asked me to guess, I would have doubled that number at least. All it takes to understand why I would think that, just spend some time in a public place and people watch. No one is looking up. Everyone has their head down, buried in their smartphone.

But according to a report at youeye.com, the average person spends 58 minutes per day on the smartphone. 26% of that time is spent on talking and 20% on texting. That surprised me too. I didn’t think anybody was talking anymore.

Here’s another interesting fact about smartphone usage. In a report at businessinsider.com, the average person is checking their phone 150 times a day. That’s amazing. If you’re up 18 hours a day, that’s 8 checks an hour or one every 7 minutes. That’s a lot of distraction.

So, all in all, using your smarthphone about an hour a day seems pretty reasonable and checking it 150 times a day is, well, not surprising. You don’t want to be the last to know anything, right. Especially when knowing it is right in the palm of your hand.
