Six in 10 adults ‘couldn’t cope’ longer than a day without their mobile phone, a study has found.
A survey of 2,000 smartphone users found three in 10 never leave their house without their phone.

The findings come after the brand installed temporary emergency phone chargers in several London locations to give people the opportunity to give their phone a crucial battery boost while on the go.
