    You end up seeing all sorts of people glued to their phone. Be it adults or teens, but of course adults have less free time. Teens on the other hand have too much free time, in terms of just general phone use for anything. All the time you see someone either talking, or head down texting as they walk around.

    Yeah the iPhone users have to spend more time on their phones just trying to get them to work. Once they've managed that they text their buddies advising them not to buy iPhone's.

    I spend more than an hour on my Android smart phone. Quite a bit on reading news on IT related web sites. I also use it for catch up on BBC radio shows. The camera get used if I see something interesting. Occasionally I play games (normally if shopping with wife). Using it as a phone or texting only amounts to a small percentage of use. By the way I am not a youngster.

    Haha okay, not teenagers. I was going to say, it seems like the average teen would spend a lot more time on their phone in general and a lot more time texting than talking.

    I wonder how long we spent on land line phones.
     
  10. If only that one hour was productive. Or we keep feeding the telcos.
