Addicted to Your Smartphone? You Aren't Alone.

Last updated 1 year ago

In the U.S. alone, more than 106 million people own a smartphone. And if you are one of them, you may have nervously asked, “Where’s my phone?” at least once, even if it’s sitting right next to you. But that doesn’t make you addicted to your smartphone, does it?

Whether or not you consider yourself a smartphone addict, it’s undeniable that smartphones have affected how much we rely on mobile devices.  In fact, according to this infographic, approximately 65% of iPhone owners cited that they could not live without their iPhone. Also, about a quarter of iPhone users almost always use their phones when in a social setting, like a party.

So, what other common activities would people give up to keep their smartphones? What types of people do certain smartphones attract? Check out this smartphone addiction infographic to find out these answers and to see just how reliant we have become on smartphones - and why we love them. 

Did any of these stats surprise you? Would you admit to having a smartphone addiction? Let us know in a comment!
