According to an Ipsos Reid survey conducted in the spring, Canadians, on average, reported spending 2.8 hours per day on their smartphone, down from 3.3 hours last year.
Same goes for tablets and e-readers, at 1.8 hours down from 2.1 hours, over the same period.
"Decreases may be due in part to users settling in with their device and usage levels normalizing as the novelty wears off and users are in less of an exploratory phase," said Mary Beth Barbour, senior vice-president with Ipsos Reid.
The number of times Canadians reach for their phones remains stable, but they don't hold on to them for as long.
On average, Canadians report using their smartphones more than 220 times per month, tablets 115 times per month, and e-readers nearly 40 times per month.
The data was collected in three online surveys each with about 2,000 Canadians in February 2011 and March and April of this year.
