Over 67 percent of Spaniards aged 16 to 35 never voluntarily choose to switch off their smartphones, according to a survey conducted by IPSOS for Spanish MVNO Tuenti Movil. The survey also found that 74 percent of respondents don't remember the last time they switched off their phone, which shows how integral they are to the daily lives of young Spaniards. On the other hand, the vast majority of respondents (94 percent) frequently put their phone on silent mode, 74 percent doing so at work or in class, and 72 percent silencing the phone when going to see a film or attending a live event.
