Are You Addicted To Your Smartphone?

UK 'has never been more addicted to smartphones

If you've every woken up in the middle of the night and immediately checked your phone then you're not alone. People in the UK have never been more addicted to their smartphones, according to a report from Deloitte. One in three adults check for messages at night, and admit their overuse is causing rows with their partners.

For some, FOMO - or the fear of missing out - leaves them in the grip of an addiction to their devices, according to the survey."What smartphones enable people to do is to keep tags of what's happening, what people are saying, what people are posting. You can do that throughout the day and what smartphones are encouraging people to do is to do that at night," Paul Lee, head of technology, media and telecommunications research at Deloitte told Today. But Mr Lee said the overuse was a "temporary thing" driven by the relative newness of smartphones.

"We're getting used to how to use this tech which let's remind ourselves is just nine years old. When we have something new we tend to overreact to it," he added.
