Study Reveals People Will Give Up Sex and Caffeine to Keep Their Smartphone

Share:

How much do you love your smartphone? In a recent study by TeleNav, their U.S. research revealed some interesting facts about how addicted we are to our smartphones. Here are some of the more notable stats:

  • One-third of all respondents would be more willing to give up sex for a week than their mobile phone.
  • Of the respondents who indicated they would be more willing to give up sex than their mobile phone for a week, 70% were women.
  • 54% of all respondents would be more willing to give up exercise for a week than their mobile phone.
  • So what about our guilty pleasures? 55% of respondents would be more willing to give up caffeine for a week than their mobile phone, 63% would be more willing to give up chocolate, and 70% would be willing to forego alcohol.
  • One in five respondents are more willing to go shoeless than phoneless for a week.
    • iPhone users (43%) were more likely to say they’d go a week without shoes than Android users (27%) or BlackBerry users (25%).

    The iPhone has become an extension of my body. However, there are places you should not check your phone, like when you’re having dinner or watching a movie. That’s just over the top.

    We already know lots of iPhoneinCanada.ca readers use their iPhones in the bathroom (remember to wash your HANDS)–but what are you willing to give up to keep your phone?

      Other than the coffee for a week, the choices aren’t really tough! If you’re married, you go without sex for mire than a week at a time anyway! And who wouldn’t take anything over a week of excersise?
      Make it serious choices! Your smartphone or tv for a month! Your smartphone or shower for a month!

      Not a chance. I hate being addicted to smartphones, but I would switch back to my old Motorola L7i before giving up sex or caffeine!
