Studies have shown that both adults and youths that overuse smartphones can have a negative impact on their communication skills. Because they are often spending time in using their smartphones and start living in a very solitary world where, interactions may occur only over text messages and other messenger services. Thereby, becoming less able to communicate appropriately and properly with other people. This may affect not just the culture and future generations but it can have great impact on the way people interact socially and work. Financial Problems: Nowadays smartphone addiction seems to be just like an addiction of drugs or alcohol.
The constant checking update on smartphone has interrupt teenager’s sleep and even cause insomnia. In “How does smartphone” (2015), the article explain that the teenager who keep tracking for social media update and message do not get a good sleep at night. Next, the smartphone addiction can affect teenager’s studies. Teenagers who are addicted to smartphone will find themselves hard to focus on their studies.

Imagine the situation that people around you are all facing down and looking at their smartphones. It is disappointing that people are using smartphones too much instead of having face-to-face communication with others or in public spaces. People have less communication and awareness to others by using smartphones frequently. Furthermore, smartphones are affecting our health in a bad way. Smartphones seem essential now but in fact, they changed our lives negatively.
The issue of youths nowadays going online to dupe people is a very bad influence of technology. It is not a thing of surprise that these mobile phones are now major distractions to students as the need of belonging to a social media community now becomes their priority, not their books. It is not only students that are affected; same is the case of our present day youths. Moreover, it is quite obvious that gradually the standard of education is reducing, exam boards now realize that students do not read anymore and to avoid or prevent mass failure, they tend to make their exam questions easier. Why is this so all of a sudden?
Cell phones is one of the most reason for car accidents. I believe cell phones are addictive because it is causing a distraction, people to be on their phones instead of focusing on their family/lover, and people to depend on their phones too much. Cell phones cause a considerable distraction. In the article “Smartphone Addiction Could Be Changing Your Brain”, Sandee LaMotte claims, “And last, try to replace your smart device time with healthier activities such as meditating or actually interacting with real people.” In the article “Our Addiction To Cell Phones Is Costing Lives.

People will get distracted when the smartphone notification is pop up, especially people who forget to turn off their phone into silent mode when working and it will affect the product of their work. It is same goes to students nowadays, students’ memory become poorer because too dependent on smartphone. The date of important events, people’s contact number, reminder in the smartphone will ‘share responsibility’ with human’s minds. This causes human lazy to use their mind to think, reduce people’s intelligence and attention spans. According to the researchers at University Of Texas, people who have smartphone within eye shot are worse to conduct work and remember information.
The first negative influence is it separates us from the reality. Youths are becoming selfish. They are not concerned about the current events and this is one of the reasons why many robberies have happened around us. What they concern are only about the technology gadgets. Some of the youths may feel uncomfortable and anxious when they realize the smartphone is not with them.
REASONS THAT MAKES US “THE SMARTPHONE SLAVES” 1. Rising Recent Trends- The trend of downloading new applications have increased manifold. Youth might suffer from inferiority, if they haven’t got the latest apps. It is considered that the peer pressure leads to such meaningless & unsafe addictive behavior. 2.
Great news for human development, you’d have though. Not everyone thinks so. Many don’t see the beauty in technology and are fearful of this pace of progress in science and technology, and the way it’s challenging basic ideas about nature of human life. A clear illustration would be the rising trend of nomophobia in this era of smartphone boom.
