How clean is your smartphone?

For reasons unknown, furniture retailer Bright House has commissioned some boffins to investigate the cleanliness of a range of living room items, including laptops, smartphones and tablets.
Their highly-scientific “findings” suggest some smartphones house nearly 70 times more germs than your average toilet, while iPhones tend to be around 50% filthier than their Android counterparts. 
Unfortunately, the researchers have neglected to question the Apple fanboy brigade about what it is they do with their devices that cause them to be so dirty. Or perhaps they just really didn’t want to know the answer.  
Tablets were also singled out for harbouring dangerous levels of “potentially harmful bacteria” on the basis that these devices are often used by children. 
Tablets are also widely used within the business community, but only one of these user groups has a reputation for being a bunch of germ-riddled, virus spreaders. We’ll leave you to determine which.
