How often do people check their phones?

March 16, 2015

According to a recent study by Kleiner Perkins Caufield and Byers, the average phone user checks their phone:
  • Around 150 times/day
  • Around every 6 minutes or 10 times/hr

That's 1050 times per week!  And that's just the average user!  'Highest frequency users' were said to check their phones up to every 6 seconds!!!  #hangitup dude.

An app called 'Locket' keeps tabs of how often users unlock their phones, etc. One user was found to have unlocked their phone over 900 times in one day!

In sum, people whip out their phones all the time.  A lot can go wrong with slippery phones these days getting bigger and bigger.  In fact, as I'm sitting at my local coffee shop somebody just dropped their phone in line.  

That's why Loopy is so handy; I never leave my pocket without being in the loop, and I've had my Galaxy S4 for 2 years!  I'm always secure and in control, and there's not a scratch on my phone.  How's that for resale value?  Another nice thing is that the silicone loop is just grippy enough so that my phone never slides out of my pocket - what a bonus!  #stopthedrop

Hold Your Phone with Your Left Hand?


Do you HOLD your phone with your left hand?  If so, you'll want to request a LEFTY Loopy!  It's no problem because we make them, too! :)


In short, the hand that grabs your phone (most of the time) is the orientation you want for your Loopy Case.


All Loopy Cases are righties by default.  If you'd like a left-handed Loopy, simply type out 'LEFTY' in the notes section once adding your Loopy Case to your cart (the notes section is on the cart page).  If you are ordering multiple Loopy Cases, please note which models you'd like a LEFTY version of as well.


Additional Info:

Having trouble deciding?  Simply answer this question: which hand do you hold your phone with MOST of the time? If the left hand, please request a LEFTY model via the instructions above. If the right hand, no note is needed since this is the default orientation for Loopy :)


Can I still use my phone with my right hand if I get a lefty model?  Absolutely. Most of us here at Loopy HQ use our cases with both hands with EASE. Our loops are made to be comfortable and versatile for use with both of your hands. The loop angle is simply there to give you maximum comfort with your dominant hand, but does not hinder your ability to use it with the other.
