This survey into smartphone use is not much more than a thinly-veiled advertisement for Fancl’s Sumaho Enkin, a blueberry-based supplement that allegedly helps eyes tired from too much smartphone use, but I think it is sufficiently interesting regardless.
I never touch my smartphone in bed (wife won’t allow it!) and I have to return home if I leave my smartphone, as it has my train ticket on it!
This turned up when I searched for Blueberry Eye:
Q1: Have you ever experienced tired eyes when using a smartphone? (Sample size=500)
Q2: What is a smartphone to you? (Sample size=500, multiple answer)

A part of me that holds all my data
A video display that entertains me
A partner I cannot bear to be more than 30 centemetres away from
A business partner for managing my ideas, contacts, etc
A music player that heals me and cheers me up
More reliable that my lover, spouse or family
A valuable book reader filled with novels and manga
Q3: Do you usually fiddle with your smartphone in bed before you sleep? (Sample size=500)
Q4: If you realise you left your smartphone at home, have you ever returned for it even if you’d be late for your appointments? (Sample size=500)
Q5: How long do you think you could bear being without your smartphone? or How long did you actually bear being without your smartphone? (Sample size=500)
