Do some people use their smart phones too much or are they the best thing of the modern world? There are definitely people that are on their phones too much throughout the day. If someone tracked the time they spent on their phone, they would be surprised how much time it actually is. I didn’t think I was on my phone that much, but I found out that I am on my phone around four hours a day without even realizing it. People should really evaluate their time and see how they could use it more effectively. Smart phones can be a really helpful tool, but it shouldn’t be overused.
