Apparently iPhone users care more about their phone than they do their breath. Telenav did a survey and found that 22 percent of 514 U.S. respondents would be willing to give up their toothbrush versus their smartphone. For iPhone users this number jumps to 40 percent! The survey also had several other interesting things people would be willing to give up. Granted, all theses luxuries and necessities were only for a week, but it is still apparent that smartphones rule our world. Some of the statistics include:
- 68 percent of iPhone users and 65 percent of Android users would give up exercise for a week versus their phone.
- 34 percent of iPhone users say they use their phone at the dinner table versus 21 percent of Android and 15 percent of BlackBerry users.
- 55 percent of smartphone users are willing to give up caffeine, 70 percent would be willing to say no to alcohol and 63 percent could live without chocolate.
- 43 percent of iPhone users would go without shoes.
