The average US adult spends 58 minutes on their smartphone each day, according to data from Experian – and traditional phone activities still make up the largest chunk of that time.

Overall, making and receiving calls accounts for the highest time spend, at 26 per cent of the total, followed by texting (20 per cent).

Social networking (16 per cent) is the most popular app-based activity, followed by browsing the mobile web (14 per cent), emailing (nine per cent) and playing games (eight per cent). 

The data also shows that the average iOS user spends more time in total on their phone, at 75 minutes per day, than an Android user, at 49 minutes.
