Do you ever wonder how many times an average person looks at his or her phone in an hour? Well, now you can get an answer.

We surveyed 15 kids about looking at their phones. We found out that kids can look at their phones from two to 15 times in an hour. We know, this sounds unbelievable, but it is true. We had them count the times themselves and give us the results.

So, if you are up for 16 hours in a day and you look 15 times an hour, that is 240 phone checks. That is a lot of checking! Who are you waiting to hear from? Are you checking Instagram and Snapchat? A lot of kids admit it just becomes a habit to look at their phones.
