We’ve had a great year at Tech.Co, and we’ve covered our fair share of great stories in in 2015 and looked into some of the biggest trends in the tech space. One of the most important trends we’ve focused on, though, is the shift towards greater reliance on our mobile devices. I mean, even in social situations, 89 percent of us find ourselves hooked onto our phones; hence, it should really be no surprise that 80 percent of people claim that they’d willingly give up alcohol or chocolate in exchange for a lost phone.

That, according to Mobile Future’s Mobile Moments 2015 video. In the video, Mobile Future looks at some stats and figures centered on our smartphone use. Another not-so-surprising stat? That 87 percent of Millennials claim their smartphone is always with them. The video, which you can watch below, also looks into other trends in technology, such as the increasing prevalence of smart devices. Watch it here:
