The Average American does this 52 times a day; what is it?
The answer: Look at their phone
A new study found that Americans look at their phone an average of 52 times a day. The statistic means that with an estimated 270 million Americans, we are viewing smartphones about 14 billion times per day. However, Deloitte's U.S. edition of the 2018 Global Mobile Consumer Survey found 39 percent of consumers now believe they use their smartphones too much. 18 to 34-year-olds were most likely to admit their addiction, with 60 percent saying they used their phone too much - the highest level of any age group. 63 percent of the respondents reported trying to limit their smartphone usage, roughly half succeeding in cutting back.
