The typical cell phone user touches his or her phone 2,617 time every day, according to a study by research firm dscout. And that's just the average user-the study found that extreme cell phone users (meaning the top 10%) touch their phones more than 5,400 times daily.To test a previous study that found cell phone users go through 150 mobile device sessions every day, the folks at dscout tracked 94 Android users with a special tool that counted the study participants' every mobile device-related action, 24 hours a day for 5 days. Actions like typing, tapping, and swiping the phone's screen counted as a 'touch.'
As for iPhone users, Apple recently confirmed their device users unlock their phones 80 times every day. That's about 6 to 7 times every hour.So no matter your smart phone preference, the facts make a clear point: we are addicted to our mobile devices.
