Almost 12% who responded to the survey say that they think smartphones get in the way of their relationships with their significant others. In fact 33% say they use their phones during dinner dates. And even when turned off, 72% of people admit keeping their smartphones within five feet of themselves for a majority of the time.

The Jumio study also shows that 12% of Americans use their cell phones in the shower and 19% even use their cell phones in church.
