The panic! The mayhem! The unthinkable reality of being without your phone!

Our phones are intertwined in our lives, our habits and our identities. The results of scientific studies continue to demonstrate just how important phones have become to our daily lives.

The data tells us that three-quarters of phone owners use their phone at least once every hour (11% every few minutes, 41% a few times an hour and 20% once an hour.) The saying “never leave home without it” rings true, as 72% of people stay within 5 feet of their phone at all times. And our phones prompt regular attention, with people checking them on average 150 times throughout their day.

Cell phone use has been compared to drug or alcohol addiction. Compiling information from several scientific studies, this infographic looks at what the first 60 minutes of withdrawal may look like.
