Report on the use of phones
This report aims to provide information on mobile phone addiction, its advantages, and disadvantages. The report is intended to be read mostly by young people such as teenagers, pupils, and students. People aged from 14 to 25 participated in the survey relating to mobile phone addiction that I conducted online during the Coronavirus pandemic.
The participants were asked 3 questions. The first question was about the time they spent on their mobile phones. The second question referred to the most frequent activities on their phone. The third question asked them if they could leave their house without their phones.
The results supported my thesis that we spent too much time on our phones. The findings revealed that the majority of them spent on average 8.3 hours daily on their phones. This shows our priorities that using our phones seems as important as sleep. The results also revealed that the primary time consumers are social media apps (Snap Chat, Instagram, and Facebook), followed by Productivity and Finance apps (word, photo math, notes, zoom, and Gmail) and entertainment apps (Netflix, YouTube) come next. 60% of the participants cannot leave their home without a phone, while 30% said that they could, the rest were indecisive.
As can be seen from the findings of this survey we spend too much of our time on our phones. Nevertheless, it is almost impossible not to own a phone in this century. However, we should be able to control the excessive use of our phones.
I would recommend taking up an activity that is beneficial to us and forces us not to use our mobile phone. Unfortunately, some people are addicted to phones and they need professional help. To prevent getting young people addicted to this time-consuming device parents and teenagers should be more informed of the problems.
