We all know someone who fiddles with their phone during drinks at the pub, or can't go to the bathroom without it.

A new infographic from OnlineColleges, gathering data from a number of different sources, has examined the attitudes and characteristics of smartphone users.

According to the combined sources, 65 per cent of iPhone users have said that they "couldn't live" without the device, while 40 per cent said that they'd prefer to give up coffee rather than their phone, 18 per cent would rather give up bathing, and 15 per cent said they'd rather give up sex.

And, when it comes to using their phone in a social setting, 58 per cent occasionally or usually pull out their smartphone in front of their friends, and 25 per cent almost always do.

Check out the infographic below to see how plugged in you are to your phone.
