The smartphone simply highlighted the human flaw. Which is self centered and selfish.

And no I am not addicted to my smartphone,

My ego wants to say no, not at all. The fact that I'm experiencing this thread, on my cell phone, during a questionably appropriate time, begs to differ.

My vote was not much addicted.

However....

I have a few friends and manage three jobs, so the fact is that my XS Max is a very important part of life.

I'm not somebody who will be looking at the iPhone if I am at a table with friends, and I am conscientious in meetings and do not look at it.

But I am absolutely getting notices on drives, on hikes, and at desks at offices, in stores, and so on.

It's vital to life.

But I'm not addicted.

I don't think. :-)

It's a tool, not a lifestyle.

I said that I was getting notices on hikes, but it's on the Watch. I will not carry my iPhone with me when I am out with the dog or hiking. If I get a notice on the Watch that is important, then I will stop and "write" a response with the handwriting gestures, or make a cell call. I'm not usually one of those people you'll see walking along staring at an iPhone.

:-)

But I've just typed all this explaining why I'm not addicted, so when I go on with other things, I'll be thinking about this. LOL....

I can leave it charged for hours and not worry about who's calling or texting me. They can wait. If it's an emergency, there's 911 for that.

I was honest and voted ‘very.’ It used to be worse, as in 4+ hours per day, but I did far better than my normal average this week.

I deleted screen time because it was annoying. But usually said 7-8 hours a day.

That 9% in the picture probably speaks volumes.

Social networking...11 hours....

Yes. Addicted.

I'm not on it much at work because I work. I'm on it at the gym (treadmill or bike) eating solo I'm on it.

I think most people crave social interaction with the least possible effort. A phone/ social media can satisfy that need easily. I'm very conscience of it though, if i'm at a bar (even alone) or in a social setting eating with others I stay off it.

I voted normal. But I might be slightly lower than normal. Don't really look at the phone when I'm around company. Only time I look at it is when things are slow at work, waiting in lines, watching TV, and taking a ****.

I'm never off my phone, I have to remind myself in social situations to not reach for it in my pocket and continue socializing.

Am I the only person who's not at all interested in folding phones?

0_o

I'm not even sure they know what they're doing.

You've got to keep the pixels on the fold heated to avoid cracking the screen at some point, right? Has anybody even talked about how they're going to keep the fold at the right temperature, and how they're going to manage the battery life because of that?

I think it's a pretty dumb idea, basically a phone/tablet hybrid. Just get a tablet if you need tablet level screen real estate for pooping.

Not when you can't have your phone at work.
