Brits Glued to Smartphones During Night Outs

A new survey has revealed that Britons spend almost an hour on their smartphones when they are on a night out with friends.

According to The Telegraph, the survey, which was conducted by Sheilas' Wheels home insurance, also informed that Britons spend an average of 48 minutes on their smartphones on a night out.

During that time, on an average, they send 3 email messages, 2 photos, 12 text messages and post 2 status messages on Facebook and Twitter.

The survey, which involved inputs from British adults, revealed that people under the age of 25 years, spend around an hour and a half on their smartphones on a night out. The home insurance firm revealed that on an average, men spent 17 hours with their phone close by while woman spent 15 hours.

“As more and more of us couldn't imagine life without a phone in arm's reach, personal relationships are being affected. Whether it's a night out with friends or even going to bed at night, texting and updating social networking sites seems to be the norm with face-to-face conversations taking second best,” Jacky Brown of Sheilas' Wheels said.
