Your smartphone is actually 7 times dirtier than your toilet.
According to The New York Post, a study was conducted using various swabs from around a toilet seat and the results showed around 220 areas that housed bacteria.
A similar study was conducted on phones and found over 1450 spots of similar bacteria.
Experts say a major reason for the number of similar bacteria is due to the fact that people tend to take their smartphones into the bathroom with them.
Doctors attribute a lot of issues including viruses and skin conditions like acne to dirty phones.
