Smartphones new sleeping partners in India

New York, July 29 (IANS) More Indians are sleeping with smartphones in their hands, a survey has found, adding that some would rather give up sex for a weekend than part from their “sleeping partner”.

This is among the results of a seven-country survey of more than 7,000 people about smartphone habits released on Tuesday by Motorola, now owned by Chinese electronics giant Lenovo, reported.

Sixty percent of those surveyed said they slept holding their handsets – with the highest percentages in India (74 percent) and China (70 percent).

One in six smartphone users said they used their phones while showering, and 54 percent said they would reach for the smartphone before saving their cat in a fire.

Around 40 percent tell secrets to their phones they would not reveal even to their best friend.

But the relationship is not perfect. Only 39 percent said they were “happy” with their smartphone, and 79 percent felt bothered that their devices interrupted them at inopportune moments.

The survey was conducted online by KRC research with a total of 7,112 smartphone owners in the United States, Britain, Brazil, China, Spain, Mexico and India.
