Tech Insiders Who Fear A Smartphone Dystopia.

Q. How many times a day do users interact with their phone?
A. People tapped, swiped and clicked a whopping 2,617 times each day, on average. For the heaviest users—the top 10%—average interactions doubled to 5,427 touches a day. Per year, that’s nearly 1 million touches on average—and 2 million for the less restrained among us. We’re definitely letting our fingers do the walking, and they’re doing marathons. Each tap and swipe feels small and harmless—just a tiny fraction of our brain power and physical effort. But at these volumes, have the interactions become an onerous load?
Phone screen time was 2.42 hours for the average user, and 3.75 hours for the heavy user. That was time spent on everything from typing texts, swiping on Tinder, turning Kindle pages, and scrolling in Facebook.

Heavy Users: 5,427 Average Daily Touches & 225 Average Daily Minutes On The Smartphone.

Average Users: 2,617 Average Daily Touches & 145 Average Daily Minutes On The Smartphone.
