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?

Not a problem!


Below are some frequently asked questions to help you decide if a lefty model Loopy is for you.  In short, it's all about which hand you predominantly HOLD your phone with :)


If you'd like to purchase a left-handed Loopy, simply type out 'LEFTY' in your order during checkout in the notes section. If you're ordering multiple Loopy Cases, please note which models you'd like a LEFTY version of as well.

Do I need a left-handed model Loopy?

The best way to decide whether you need a left-handed version is answered by 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 :)


What is the difference between a lefty and righty Loopy?

The loop angle. We set the loop at a specific angle for the most comfort and best performance of your case. You can see the loop angle below:

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.


I'm right-handed but use my phone with my left hand. Should I get a lefty?

Think about the question within the first FAQ question written here. This should help you determine what is best for you!


Anything else I should know?

Keep in mind that you will be able to use your phone one-handed with a Loopy. This is a game changer! Using your phone one-handed is awesome. Select your dominant hand based on the info above and you shouldn't have a problem at all :)
