smartphone use 58 minutes average 640x380

We’re sure many of you are currently reading this story on your smartphone while you’re either commuting or while lounging around your home, which probably makes you in the minority according to a new report that has found Americans spend a total of 58 minutes per day on their smartphones.

A report published by Experian has found on average, adults use their smartphones for just 58 minutes per day with a total of 26% of their time spent talking on their phone, while 20% of that time is spent texting. The report further cuts up just how much time Americans spend on their smartphones as 16% of the recorded 58 minutes of average daily use is used to check up on social media sites. Surprisingly, only 9% of the 58 minutes averaged was spent playing games.

The results of Experian’s report were found by tracking a smartphone user’s activities that not only resulted in the use of a dedicated application, but also native features that would allow the user to interact with a service. Experian’s report is quite impressive as we know we can’t go a few seconds without checking our smartphone, but once again, we guess we’re in the minority.
