Who’s More Obsessed With Their Smartphones? Men or Women

*Singing* Anything you can do I can do better... I can do anything better than you...* In the timeless battle of men vs women, a new study finds that one definitely out-obsesses over their smartphones and gadgets more than the other. According to new research commissioned by online smartphone retailer Dialaphone, 52% of married women check their smart phones within 10 minutes of waking up. In fact 29% look at their phone before they even bother to look at their partner. However, it seems men prefer to look at their partners instead, with only 18% reaching for their phones straight away.
Personally, I've been in a few relationships where one or two minor arguments arguments about inappropriate smartphone use has challenged communications within the relationship. But on the other hand, I'm the same girl that manages to check her email during middle-of-the-night bathroom breaks. In this new age of technology, social media and its affects on interpersonal relationships how much is smartphone use is too much?
