New Survey Says Half Of Us Would Fish Our Smartphone Out Of A Public Toilet If We Had To, Would You?

iphone4According to the latest survey by Crowd Science 1 in 5 of us is addicted to our smartphones. To be honest I am surprised it was only 20%, I would have said it was much closer to the mid 40s judging from myself and my friends.  The research group was only 800 people which isn’t great but still has some amount of statistical relevance. Check out some of the highlights below for the public toilet stat.

  • One in five respondents admit to being addicted to their smartphones. Agreement with this sentiment skewed higher among iPhone owners at 26%, compared with 13% of BlackBerry owners.
  • Those between the ages of 30 and 49 are heaviest users of smartphone features, while respondents who are 50+ use fewer features (particularly text messaging, games, and social media) and do so less frequently.
  • 25% of smartphone owners say they perform local and map-based activities less than once a month, 11% indicate they never do so, and 58% go-local at least once a week.
  • 89% of smartphone owners believe it is taboo to break-up with someone via text message.
  • If their phone fell in a public toilet, 57% would fish it out! Agreement was highest among iPhone owners, at 65% compared with 49% for BlackBerry owners.

My question to all of you is, if your phone really did fall into a public toilet, would you go get it? BE HONEST.
