Is your smartphone always in your hand or within arm’s reach? It’s pretty common these days for us to never be without our phones and a new survey reveals just how dependent on them we’ve become.
According to the poll of 2,000 smartphone users, six in ten people “couldn’t cope” with being separated from their cell for more than a day. And they rely on it for basically everything:
- 68% use their phones to take photos, 64% use it to check the time and 62% constantly use it to check the weather forecast.
- Just over a quarter (27%) of respondents depend solely on their phones for directions and one in three have NEVER used a paper map before.
- Another 13% admit they can’t even find their way to work without the map on their phone.
