The truth is that the smartphone has become one of the indispensable tools of our day to day, it is almost impossible to start our day without that companion in your pocket, in factSpaniards are among the most addicted to mobile phones according to recent studies.
A Statista report indicates that Spain is the fifth country in the world that uses the telephone the most during the day, with an average of more than two hours a day of mobile data consumption per user, a significant amount of time, although far exceeded by the first place on the list, in which there is an average of almost five hours a day.
The first place belongs to Brazil, something hard to believe, when perhaps an Asian country was present in our minds. China follows in this list with just over three hours a day, then Italy with 2:34 hours and below Spain is South Korea with 2:10 hours.
Spain drops positions in daily mobile use
In 2012 the same study was carried out and the data obtained in this new version of the study multiplies in many cases the numbers of that time. Spain was in second position, but by dropping some places it is observed that other countries increased the use of devices.
However this number of hours of mobile phone use in Spain still cannot be classified as an addiction, since according to The psychologist Eparquio Delgado, for this, three key signs would have to be presented: a problematic pattern of use, a withdrawal syndrome and a tolerance that drives increasing doses.
Considering these elements, certainly We Spaniards are among the most addicted to mobile phones, but we have decreased positions compared to other years, which which means that it is a habit but not an addiction.
