Man, I wish someone would touch ME as much as they touch their phone. Then maybe my dad would respect me.
A new study found we touch our phones an average of 2,617 times a day. That includes every single touch, tap, and swipe . . . so if you’re texting, every letter you press counts as a touch.
And the 10% of us who use our phones the most touch them 5,427 times a day.
The study also found we use our phones 76 times a day, which is about five times an hour. And we’re using them for a total of two hours and 25 minutes.
And finally, 87% of us sometimes check our phones in the middle of the night.
