Brits battle boredom staring at phone screens

A new survey has found Brits are now less bored today than they were 20 years ago, because they have a smartphone.
Greg Tatton-Brown, spokesman for online gaming site Casumo.com, who commissioned the survey through OnePoll, said:
“the Smartphone is a vital part of everyday life in the 21st century. With this much stimulation, it can be difficult to focus on tasks at hand, especially if they’re not necessarily fun – like at work, or jobs at home that need doing.”
But what stimulation do Brits prefer? Apparently 45% of people relieve boredom by unlocking their phones, staring at the screen and then putting them away again without accomplishing anything. And they do it more than 10 times a day.
