I think we all misuse our phones to a degree, not that there ever was a set way we should treat them

I've never seen anyone misuse a smartphone as they are not that difficult to use.

its not everyone read, studied hard and became useful before smart phones is untrue. people were just as enthralled by the tv for generations.

I agree the quality is low, but for the average use, low has always been the way. people want to relax after work, even top scientists and execs. most books aren't exactly Shakespeare or physics, their trashy erotica or simple fun storylines.

if anything is being lost its attention span, patience, and creativity.

Then, I don't think the issue stems from smartphones, I think it stems from how we raise our generations recently, making them soft and giving them no real challenges. They do not grow because they do not need to, and that harms their development. One can develop perfectly fine, intellectually, if he uses his phone properly, but we must teach him to do so first.

I think so, because using their smarphones they get so much useless information that they harm Their own development.

I dont think this is a teenage problem at all as most adults are addicted to their smartphones as well.

I don't think that there has been sufficient research to make a determination either way. Research on the subject is conflicting. Some teens use their smart phones to become more social, some use them to isolate themselves further. But this is largely related to other factors than the phone itself.

I'd say the phone is a tool which can be used to enhance a teens life or damage it. The amount of use isn't really the issue as much as how they are using it.

I think that understanding today's technology and how it effects our world today is also important. As long as they are physically active as well, i feel that being on their phone is no worse than sitting and reading or writing. Most of the writing, reading, and personal studying that I do is on my phone.

Let me rephrase the question:

"Most teenagers of today invests too much time on their smartphones".

This would imply that there was an intrinsic proper use for smartphones. Being that smartphones are computers, cameras, and phones at once, I would argue that the uses are too broad to claim one or two "true uses."
