This infographic comes to us from the good people at Cash Generator.co.uk. Here is what they had to say upon submitting their infographic to us:

Are you addicted to your mobile phone? This infographic created by Cash Generator (the UK discount retailer), it illustrates how the use of smartphones takes over our lives nowadays. It begins by highlighting background information and common use characteristics to establish why we use them in the first place. Then the infographics goes on to explore common scenarios leading to mobile phone addiction. In conclusion, for some people turning off your mobile phones to avoid addiction might not be the best idea, since the stress from not being able to communicate could just make things worse.
The data used to create the infographic was originated from Europe, US and Worldwide. Are you ready to switch off?

This infographic certainly highlights the prevalence of mobile phone addictions. There are a ton of interesting statistics regarding smartphone use, but unfortunately none of them are visualized! Typography and icons are used in every instance where a data point is called out. Although the subject of the infographic was interesting enough that I read through the entire thing, it does feel a bit like a blog post or article rather than an infographic.

Overall, the design is pretty good. The colors are a bit dull, the the graphics used are clean and simple, which work really well since the subject is already pretty engaging. However in spite of the accessible design, I have to give this infographic a C because of the lack of data visualization. Remember to visualize data wherever you can, especially on an infographic whose content is as shareable as this one!
