31 per cent of people would rather break up with their other half than have their favourite gadget broken. The recent survey found that while the majority chose their partners, an impressive number would actually choose their favourite piece of tech.
Asking over 9000 people, gadget insurance company SquareTrade found that just under 3000 would choose their iPhone, iPad or other beloved piece of tech over their partners.
Luckily for all those concerned SquareTrade also carried out a reliability test in 2010 and found that iPhones and smartphones from HTC and Motorola were some of the most reliable smartphones available so hopefully it won't come to choosing.
Interestingly what the survey doesn't tell you is whether these beloved gadgets are the latest smartphones or your prized record player.
