Daily phone useage

After playing a game with my daughter over xmas about what family members were good at, and her reply for what I'm good at being 'PHONE PHONE PHONE' pointing at mobile, it made me realise I'm probably far too addicted to my phone..... Checked screen time on iOS and it was averaging 8 hours a day.
 
NYR is to cut that down to 4 hours, which is probably still disgustingly high, but gotta start somewhere. What's the average daily screen time you lot are on currently?

I sent mine off to get the screen repaired on Wednesday and I'm in absolute agony without it.
 
My kids often ask me how i can limit their time in front of the telly / chromebook / switch when I am constantly on my phone, a totally fair enough question lol.
 
I have no idea of actual time spent but if I did I'm sure it would be incredibly depressing.

Yeah, I had the same discussion with Emily lol. Currently hiding behind BECAUSE IT'S WORK but that's a huge lie. 
 
Only 4 days into the year and hit 4/5 hours, gotta say it does feel much better not looking at a phone the whole time. I've disabled notifications for pretty much everything apart from texts now.

I don't know how much but it's too high. I had a resolution to reduce it last year. Worked well at first before getting really bad again quite early on.
 
I made a game of seeing how many times I could not look at my phone in an hour, and breaking that record. It never really got any easier though.

If you've got an iPhone, it's just under 'Settings > Screen time', missus has got a Hauwai and installed an app. It's well worth doing.

I’m averaging 7hrs for the last week, I hate how addicted Ive become.

My phone did something really creepy recently, I never signed up for iCloud but it suddenly activated itself and transferred everything on my phone, photos, contacts, notes etc to iCloud. When I realised and deleted the stuff off the cloud I lost it from my phone too.

2 hours 20 a day over the last week apparently which isn't too bad I guess. Still quite a lot really, most of that is time that could be better spent elsewhere. Reckon I've probably averaged 4 hours a day in the last week playing Dead Cells on Switch though tbf
 
Notifications off FTW
 
My Mrs is the one with the problem in our house, her face is constantly buried in her phone. Properly switches off from the rest of the world too, you have to say her name 3 or 4 times to get her attention and then she gets all mardy that you've raised your voice.
 
My fault though. She was perfectly happy using burners and didn't want an iPhone, but I bought her one anyway so that she could take more photos of the kids and she hasn't put it down since.

Nice one. I decided to get one. Wasn't expecting it to have past information but thankfully the data collector monster has been working deviously. Apparently I'm averaging around 4 hours recently. Not too bad I suppose but I'd like to half that.

Went without a phone for 3 weeks last year after it got nicked. Was really nice actually. Sure was sometimes a pain but overall was just relaxing

was around 3 hours per day last year which i thought was bad so i deleted all social apps except Instagram and got it down to about an hour a day.
 
i'm very conscious about me and the wife using phones too much around the kids, i'm a bit of a high horse wanker about them being overexposed to phones/tablets/screens etc.

I'm guessing that's for commuting? I get that together with some social media but 5+ hours is a lot! 
 
I've never understood the fascination with phones/FB etc but am well aware I'm basically an OAP on this topic.

I did this and it helped massively. It's nice looking at the phone and not seeing the red notification on each app.
 
I have only just started using the screen time, will report back when I know how addicted I am.

Does Whatsapp usage through a browser count? I must spend a ridiculous amount of time on Whatsapp during the week.

There's an app on Android called Your Hour which tracks it, get on it.

Spent 2 hours the other day reading about MKUltra for absolutely no reason. That in itself wouldn't be so bad, but I can barely remember a thing about it now.

yeah, my 2019 resolution is to reduce screen time too. i pretty much have to be in front of one for eight hours a day during the week, so if i can try to limit it to only an hour or two a day beyond that i'll be happy

Lol this is me. Desperately trying to pass on the knowledge in the pub having completely forgotten almost everything.

YouTube recommendations is what gets me. About to go to sleep and then end up watching 'Interview with a real life psychopath' for 45 minutes

That Your Hour app is great. I'm having a break from social media for a little while but I seem to have replaced it with this place and i don't even really post, just browse. According to that app I'm a habitual user of about 2 hours a day.

The only thing I can remember is some Scottish dude fed someone LSD 72 days in a row to try and create a new personality for them. They forgot how to use a toilet and spent the rest of their life in a nappy.

Average 3h 16m.
Tbh you can still do productive things from your mobile phone, beats watching soaps for 3h straight a day like many fucko's.

Regs pick up and it unlocks and I’m left staring at the screen blankly as I’m unsure what I’m supposed to be checking.
