Study shows how bad we treat our phones.

American's spend more on new phones than any other people on the planet! According to an April 2019 report the average American phone cost $525. A distant 2nd in price was the phones of Europeans at $412. Yet despite how expensive our phones are, it seems a lot of us don’t really treat our devices all that well. 

A new survey finds…

  • One in three Americans currently have a crack in their phone screen.
  • The fear of dropping phones and cracking screens is giving a lot of Americans “Phone-xiety.”
  • 52% of folks are “always” worried about the safety of their phone.
  • The average American almost drops their phone at least six times every week.
  • The average American drops their phone four times a week, while a third drop it more than that.

Now dropping a phone on the floor is bad, but apparently a lot of folks have dropped their phones in even worse places. The most unfortunate places people have dropped their phones include:

  • Sewer
  • Bar bathroom floor
  • Hospital bathroom
  • Port-o-Potty
  • Pot of rice
  • Bowl of soup
  • Dog’s water bowl
  • Dumpster
  • Beer cup
  • Trash can
