The Apple device beats a flushing toilet

Those who own an Apple iPhone may think it's pretty incredible, but a large proportion of them would go as far to say it is the best invention ever.

In a survey conducted by Tesco Mobile, the supermarket giant asked 18-65 year olds up and down the country what they believe the most important invention is. And the Apple device came in at an impressive number eight, beating creations such as the car, camera and flushing toilet.

The number one invention according to the 4,000 Brits asked was the wheel. Close behind were the airplane, the light bulb and the World Wide Web.

Lance Batchelor of Tesco Mobile said: "All of the inventions included in this list have changed the world forever.

"Whether it be something as small as a paper clip, to something which changed the face of the universe like the combustion engine, these amazing feats have all been recognised as truly great.

"Some - like the washing machine and wheel - have made our lives easier, while wireless technology and the internet have changed the face of communication.

"It's amazing to see how much the iPhone is valued, sitting alongside inventions such as Penicillin in people's perceptions and being declared a more important invention than miracle gadgets of their own time, such as the compass."

If you can't be without one of the world's greatest creations, why not sell your old phone for cash and buy an iPhone.
