No place is off limits when it comes to using to smartphones. That's one of the takeaways of a new study released and conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of Jumio, in which it was revealed that Americans who own such devices have no problem using them during sex (9 percent), in the shower (12 percent), and while at church (19 percent). Perhaps Samsung can use this information to better promote its Galaxy S4 Active.

Regardless of the type of mobile phone, Americans want them by their side at all times possible. Nearly three-quarters of the 1,102 survey's respondents said they're within five feet of their smartphone almost all of the time. They use them at the movies (35 percent), on dinner dates (33 percent), and when attending children and/or school functions (32 percent).

Smartphone Use

"It's no wonder people in relationships feel like their phones are cramping their love life -- 12 percent of respondents in a relationship said they believe their smartphone gets in the way of that relationship," Jumio said.

Surprisingly, 'just' 55 percent admitted to using their smartphone while driving. That adds up to a lot of distracted drivers on the road, though we would have pegged that number at being even higher.

I'd say six of those seven are unacceptable. Come on, have some standards.

(The acceptable one is off course the shower. Why not?)

During sex @ 9%? WTH?

"No baby, you're good, someone just keeps Facebooking me."

i 100% agree with you because i dont care if you use your phone in the shower.No one knows about it(except the NSA of course lol). It doesnt bother anyone else but pretty much every other one makes you look like a terrible person because your addicted to your phone to give a little of attention to spiritual things, to not killing other people on the road, to YOUR CHILD/CHILDREN, to another human being whom you are building a relationship with that may or may not have future implications on your life. I think ive made my point. And the sex one i have not comment. Also pulling out your phone at the movie theater is a horrible thing and for those who do it should be ashamed of themselves.
