More People Exchanging a Magazine for Smartphone While Sitting on the Toilet
The convenience of smartphones has made life incredibly more convenient. It allows people to take both personal and work lives with them wherever life leads. It makes businesses more effective, traveling easier, and has even made time on the toilet a more enjoyable experience.
A new, recent study looked into the mobile phone habits of smartphone users. It evaluated several using habits of the users, including the ways that they spend their time on the toilet. It seems that with the induction of smartphones, magazines are a thing of the past. The study revealed that nearly 75 percent of the people find that the phone is the answer when nature calls. People are now choosing to email, text, surf the webs and use apps during time spent in the toilet.
A vast 90 percent of people between the ages of 28 and 35 will use the phone on the toilet. This group, according to the study, will probably text you will sitting on the throne. In fact, that 90 percent of people are likely to even call you during, what should be, a very private time.
A fifth of men have participated in a conference call during this time. It seems the possibility of accidentally revealing where you are at by hitting FaceTime isn’t a big concern for these men. Even worse, the possibility of other callers hearing unmentionable noises during this time does not seem to even phase some during a conference call.
According to the survey, likelihood of what you do on the phone during toilet time largely depends on what type of smartphone you own. Broken down by brand, the survey shows these results:
- Multi-taskers, using a variety of applications and doing several things, tend to be Android users.
- If someone is taking a call, they are probably sporting a BlackBerry
- And those using apps on toilet are most likely using an iPhone.
So, if you’ve always felt a little weird about taking the phone into the bathroom with you in loo (lieu) of a magazine, don’t worry. Many other people across the world have found it to be a valuable replacement. And, it’s much easier to hide when sneaking away for some time on the toilet during working hours. Proudly walk into a bathroom and use it to pass the time. But, perhaps avoid taking conference calls while sitting on the toilet. That’s a little awkward for everyone.
The survey consisted of 1,000 people.
