A recent report by reviews.org has found that 46 per cent of Australians say they are addicted to their phones.

Reviews.org also found that Australians spend 17 years of their life, and an average of five hours a day, staring at their phones.

1,000 Australians were interviewed for the report, which found some startling insights into our phone use.

79 per cent said they checked their phone within 10 minutes of waking up, while three quarters said they felt uneasy if they left their phone at home.

32 per cent said they have gone over their data allowance for using their phone so much.

As a result, Reviews are urging Aussies to take a digital detox: trying 24 hours without technology, setting boundaries of your screen use and creating tech-free zones.
