We Could Only Survive 5 Hours and 11 Minutes Without Our Phone
Chattanooga, Tennessee—(Wise Brother)
If you forgot your phone at home today, you’ll be pulling your hair out by lunchtime. A new poll found we can now only survive a few HOURS without it before we go nuts.
The average answer was 5 hours and 11 minutes. After that, we’d really be jonesing. Over half of people said they’d barely communicate with anyone if they didn’t have it.
People also said they’d only survive about 5 hours without access to a TV. But there are a few other gadgets we could go longer without.
As long as we had our phone, we could go three days without our laptop. And gamers said the same about their gaming consoles.
The poll found the average adult uses their phone for a total of 3 hours and 34 minutes a day.
Without it, 38% said they’d feel totally disconnected . . . 27% would feel isolated . . . and 25% would immediately feel lonely.
