17% of 18 to 24 year olds pick up their phone at least 200 times per day.

Deloitte's Digital Consumer Trends report has found people pick up their phone 58 times per day on average.

That fluctuates among the different age demographics, with 17% of 18-24 year olds looking at their phones over 200 times, and that falls to 1 in 10 people between the ages of 25 and 34.

It also found 87 percent of people use their phone within an hour of waking up, while one third check their phone within 5 minutes of waking up.

Shopping

62 percent use their phone to check bank balances, with over half browsing through shopping websites and apps.

Over a quarter of the 1 thousand people surveyed use their phones to make reservations while 16% do their online grocery shopping on mobile.

Phones have replaced laptops as the preferred device for making online purchases among the 18-24s and 35-44s.

However, it was tablet devices which saw the biggest increase in ownership, going from 43 percent last year to over 60 this year.
