Americans Check Their Phones 96 Times a Day
NASHVILLE, Tenn., Nov. 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Despite our attempts to curb our phone use, we're connected to our phones more than ever. Americans now check their phones 96 times a day – that's once every 10 minutes, according to new research by global tech care company Asurion1. That's a 20 percent daily increase from a similar survey conducted by Asurion two years ago1.
Phone use is rising despite roughly half of Americans attempting periods where they tried to use their phone less. Eighteen- to 24- year-olds check their phones twice as much as the national average. This age group is also aware of their heavy phone use, as they are more likely than other Americans to try to curb their phone use (68%)1.
Others survey findings include:
I Want to Keep in Touch
…But I Don't Want to Talk
Do as I Say, Not as I Do
It's All About Balance
