Huawei, the world’s second largest smartphone manufacturer, today released research unveiling that almost a third (28%) of Britons are afraid of the dark. The research, based on responses from 2,000 adults across the UK, was commissioned to mark the launch of Huawei’s latest P30 Series – smartphones packed with revolutionary technology to help you capture incredible photos in every scenario (even in darkness).

When it comes to Nyctophobia, not knowing what is lurking nearby (54%), feeling vulnerable and exposed (43%), and suffering from an overactive imagination (25%) were the top reasons for why Britons are crippled by a fear of darkness.

Furthermore, 1 in 6 Brits (16%) said that they don’t like sleeping outside of the duvet and get frightened by small sounds at night, while 1 in 7 (13%) said they are too scared to be in the house alone at night-time. Overall, the survey revealed the UK’s biggest phobias as a fear of heights (acrophobia) and a fear of spiders (arachnophobia).
