It's pretty obvious that smartphones are rarely used to actually call people. Instead they've become gizmos we can hide behind to use whenever, wherever. It can be a great when we're feeling antisocial, but there are definitely some cases where it's a little off-putting.

LG commissioned Kelton, a research company, to conduct a national survey about when and where Americans use their smartphones.

The survey found that 48% of smartphone owners are comfortable using their devices in places of worship, 75% of smartphone owners wouldn't mind using their phones in a public restroom and between 62-58% of people use phones while spending quality time with family and friends. Twenty-eight percent say they'll whip out a phone on a date.

Though the results aren't all that surprising, they certainly solidify the fact that we need to cut our smartphone umbilical cords every once in awhile, don't you think?
