How Often Do You Check Your Phone?

Did you know that the average person checks their phone up to 110 times a day, and as often as every 6 minutes a night? We depend on our mobile devices for just about everything these days, from ordering groceries to Instagramming the new puppy, to chatting with friends half the world away. We need our devices to run efficiently because when our phones stop working everything grinds to a halt.

The Smartphone Era

Our dependence on mobile devices seems only to increase over time. Just ten years ago, a mobile phone really was just a device for calls and occasional texting. In the smartphone era, it’s a multimedia station in the palm of your hand. As more and more information is stored on our phones, we naturally end up depending on them not only for connecting to and staying in touch with others, but for staying on top of the latest news, our businesses, our banking and even our driving, as well as unwinding with games and videos now and then.

Breaking Down the Statistics

Most mobile users tend to be active more frequently during the evenings. During peak hours between 5 pm and 8 pm, over 75% of people unlock and use their phones. At these peak evening times, the average user checks their phone approximately nine times each hour.

Even during off-peak hours around 3 am to 5 am, 24% of people are actively using their phone during those wee hours of the morning. The average person at this time checks their mobile device approximately four times an hour.

Whether it’s to contact someone, write an email or simply browse the web, staying connected and up-to-date is vital in this day and age.
