23 days a year spent on your phone

A recent study by mobileinsurance.com has revealed that the average person spends 90 mins a day on their phone.

That figue may not sound like a lot but that amounts up to 23 days a year and 3.9 years of the average person's life is spent staring at their phone screen.

So what do we spend all that time doing?

Considering its called a mobile 'Phone', using our mobile device to call people was actually the sixth most used function after other activities such as checking social media and gaming. Web browsing came top of the list with people spending 24% of their mobile usage time browsing the web, closely followed by time spent on apps.

With smart phones now offering alternatives for everyday household products from recipes books to flashlights, they are making other traditional devices obsolete. With 57% of people now saying they have no need for an alarm clock and 50% of people no longer wearing watches as their mobile phone is their first choice for knowing what time it is.

And it's not only when we are awake that we are increasing our smart phone usage with sleep help apps now available, it is even creeping into our sleeping time. With the amount of things we now we rely on our smartphone to do, our amount of time attached to our phones is only going to increase. How many years of our lives will we spend on mobile phones in 10 years time?
