BE SMART... AND DITCH THE PHONE
BED HABIT: Phone fanatics
ALMOST half of Brits say their partner’s phone use is ruining their relationship.
Shock research found 47% complained their other half uses their device too much.
A quarter of people quizzed said their mobile is the first thing they look for in the morning and more than a third admitted using their handset is the last thing they do before going to sleep.
While 41% claimed they would rather spend time in bed with their phone than with their partner, according to the poll.
Meanwhile, 53% of par- ents admitted to regularly keeping kids occupied with their smartphone.
The research came from Swedish hardware store chain Clas Ohlson as part of a campaign encouraging quality time with family.
