Excuse me, while I interrupt you checking your smartphone, to let you know the average person checks their smartphone every six-and-a-half minutes according to a new study!

Let's say you're awake 16 hours per day, that means the average person checks his or her smartphone a mind boggling 150 times!

There's no denying society has developed a smartphone obsession. More like a smartphone addition. As a large number of us reported checking our devices while eating, driving (don't forget about that little texting while driving ban here in Sioux Falls), attending church, lying in bed or even using the toilet!

Interestingly enough making a call was only the fifth most popular reason for using the gadget.

Here are the top (10) most common uses for our smartphones:

  1. Internet
  2. Social Media
  3. Music
  4. Games
  5. Phone Calls
  6. Emails
  7. Texting
  8. TV/Film
  9. Books
  10. Camera

What do you think, should we be concerned if we can't get through a meal without checking Facebook, our emails or sending off a few text messages?
