Around 40 percent tell secrets to their phones they would not reveal even to their best friend.

But the relationship is not perfect. Only 39 percent said they were "happy" with their smartphone, and 79 percent felt bothered that their devices interrupted them at inopportune moments.

The survey was conducted online by KRC research with a total of 7,112 smartphone owners in the United States, Britain, Brazil, China, Spain, Mexico and India.
