Average user looks at phone 150 times a day: here is what we are looking at
All earlier studies had this number below 100 so having the then new report about the reality being 50% higher is quite shocking. Interestingly, T-Mobile has confirmed the same number for the U.S. market in a study of its own last year. And in the UK, claims are that number has reached 200.
But what are people really looking at all those times? Former Nokia executive and currently market analyst Tomi Ahonen paints a picture of the habits of the average user. Take a look and let us know - what do you look at most on your phone?

I thought porn would have made the list, I know a few guys that show and talk about x.video clips they find throughout the day.

I guess porn goes under "videos" in this list

It's for an average user... Many users don't use their phones for web at all or use it rarely. Like me, for example :D

I almost don't look at the calendar, voice mail and news on my phone, but the rest seems to be correct... And I think I look at the clock even more often than 18 times a day :)))

I don't typically use mine for news, but I know I look at it at least 50 times a day for the time. I'm sure it's more than that though.

Half of the times I look at my phone is with no purpose at all. Just to marvel at my customised homescreen layout. lol
