Infographic – America’s Smartphone Addiction

Infographic: America's Smartphone Addiction | Statista You will find more statistics at Statista

6 January 2018. We’ve reported at Science & Enterprise many new ways of using smartphones, particularly for health care and data gathering. These devices — used more as pocket computers than phones — are ubiquitous, easy to operate, and increasingly inexpensive. But they’re also addictive, a condition our friends at Statista documented earlier this week, and it’s our weekend infographic.

For example, smartphone owners in the U.S. check their devices on average 47 times a day. In addition, more than 80 percent check their phones within an hour after waking up or going to bed, with more than one-third (35%) doing so within 5 minutes of waking or going to bed. Does that describe your behavior? (I plead guilty as charged.) Statista’s data come from a survey of more than 1,600 smartphone owners in the U.S. during July 2017.
