Is Smartphone Addiction Real?

I do think people spend more time than they realize on their phonesآ—maybe Apple and Google can integrate a native usage tracker into iOS and Android’s settings panel or something.

"Even although people may be using their smartphones a lot, it’s generally life-enhancing," says Dr Griffiths. "But there will always be a small minority, with any technological advancement, that do it to excess and it causes them problems. The good news is, particularly when it comes to smartphones, the genuine incidence of addiction is small."
