Ah, the fresh smell of smartphone in the morning!

What’s the first thing you think of in the morning? According to one survey about trends in consumer mobility, 35% of us think about our smartphones, 17% of coffee, 13% of a toothbrush, 10% of a significant other, 6% of a remote control, and 4% of a bathrobe. There were interesting findings in a different mobile consumer survey: 50% of us check our mobile devices in the middle of the night, and more than 1 in 3 check devices right before bed. Which is easy to do because 71% of us are sleeping with—or next to—their mobile phones.

With a lot of data like this, the findings are neither “good” nor “bad.” That’s too simple. Instead, they give us fascinating insights into how rapidly our trusty mobile devices have become central to how we interact with the world around us. At Entefy, we like the positive sides of these changes—the countless opportunities for person-to-person connection that exist today. It’s not all perfect, but it’s certainly inspiring. 
Entefy’s enFacts are illuminating nuggets of information about the intersection of communications, artificial intelligence, security and cyber privacy, and the Internet of Things. Have an idea for an enFact? We would love to hear from you.
