Study: 40% Use Phone Within 5 Minutes of Waking
Most notably, about 40-percent of Americans check their smartphone within five minutes of waking up in the morning. That number grows over the minutes following, with most people checking their phone within an hour of waking up, and continuing to check it dozens of times throughout the day.
Deloitte has tracked these phone usage trends over the past three years. Over this duration, the survey has noted that phone owners increasingly check their messages first thing in the morning, a habit that has increased every year since 2014. Whereas emails were tied with checking non-email messages in 2014, the number of people who do that first has decreased during the same time period.
