    Sure, some people are on their phones but maybe it's not as bad here. I still think there's no reason for people to go without one. Just seems silly to me. I do think however that people should learn to pay attention to their surroundings when using one.

    Well, OP sure used smartphone but became worried.

    There is reason of age. I grew up not only without internet but without mobile phones. I can live without smartphones. But of course now I don`t want to live without internet and mobile telephony. My favourite toy/fetish from youth days is computer and I stay with it. To me smatphones are not at the same level as PCs. They are mobile sure, but screen size, input methods are not for me.

    PS And about productivity. For example my work as a programmer has nothing to do with mails and talking with co-workers (at least on regular basis). Even if I will see a mail on the road to work I can`t do anything about it because my tools are developer ones, and I can`t use them on smartphone.

    Every one of those articles points to Social media, not smartphones. I'm not sure why it's so hard to separate the two. Like I said in my post above, I don't use social media and not everyone uses a phone for that.
    Like everything in this world, smartphones can be abused. Same could be said about someone who spends too much time on the computer.
    And to the argument of smartphones making us less social in transit:
