Would you give $ 15.000 not to give up your smartphone?

What pleasures would you give up to be able to continue using your smartphone? Your dog? Something more important? New research reveals what we would sacrifice to continue using our smartphone.

Even though we seem to be stuck with our phones, do we love them so much that we would sacrifice things like wine or coffee to keep our mobile devices?

The online marketing platform SimpleTexting asked 1.090 Americans in early July 2020 what sacrifices they would make for their smartphones.

He wanted to find out which of the pleasures of life, relationships and total joys the average person would stop to keep his smartphone.


The survey showed that more than seven in ten (71,7%) would rather give up alcohol than give up their mobile phones. Nearly eight in ten women (79,4%) compared to two in three men (67,3%) would prefer to give up alcohol instead of their phones.

Almost two in three (59%) participants would prefer to give up all SOCIAL MEDIA for a month from being away from their phone, and 64% would rather sacrifice their coffee for a month.

When asked if they would sacrifice all forms of entertainment (TV, music and podcasts) for a month to keep their smartphones, over two in five (41%) said yes.

When asked what they would sacrifice permanently to maintain their phones, almost three in five (57%) would rather stop shopping permanently at their favorite retail outlets, the Amazon and Target, rather than permanently abandon their smartphones.

One in four (26%) were willing to pay a huge amount to maintain their phones. The average AT&T Unlimited mobile package for one line is $ 75 per month or $ 900 per year.

However, when asked how much they would be willing to pay to keep their smartphone for a year, 26% would pay between $ 1.000 and $ 5.000, 15% would pay between $ 5.000 and $ 10.000 and 12% would pay between $ 10,000 and $ 15.000. and $ XNUMX.

The only sure conclusion from the above research is that we are all quite willing to sacrifice some things in order not to lose our mobile phone!
