Every British citizen will spend about 10 years of their life using gadgets, including smartphones, tablets and laptops. These are the findings of the OnePoll survey held among 2,000 British residents. On the average, the respondents use voice commands 8 times a week and receive 59 notifications to their gadgets every day (16 emails, 9 messages on Facebook, and 8 messages on Instagram). During the day, a British person uses six different apps and listen to 12 songs.
According to the poll, 8 out of 10 respondents are convinced that the technologies have made their lives easier. Also, 71% percent of those asked admitted that they were addicted to gadgets. The British start using their gadgets in the morning and spend half an hour in their smartphones. At the same time, 3 out of 10 respondents spend no more than 10 minutes checking their gadgets after waking up. More than half of the British (68%) use gadgets to communicate with their family and friends. Every 4th respondent reads news websites daily, while every 10th surveyed person makes contactless payments.
