65% of iPhone Users Say They’d Fish Their Phone Out of a Public Toilet
If your phone falls in water, you’re probably out of luck. Water isn’t supposed to mix with super-sophisticated electronics. But there IS the off-chance that if it’s not broken, or if you have the insurance, you can pay a little and swap it for a new one.
Which brings up an important question: If your phone fell in a FILTHY PUBLIC TOILET . . . would you fish it out?
A company called Crowd Science asked people that question and found out that . . . yeah, the majority of us WOULD shove our hand into a cesspool of filth to try to save our phone. 57% of smartphone users said they’d try to save their phone.
iPhone users were the most likely to go toilet diving for their phone, at 65%. 57% of Android users would try to save their phone. BlackBerry owners were the least likely, at only 49%.
And if that doesn’t sum up where the smartphone market stands in 2011, then nothing does.
As much as technology’s supposed to be a young person’s game, people 30 to 49 are most likely to use smartphone features and apps. But people 50 and over are least likely to use their smartphone’s features.
