Mobile epidemic among young smartphone users
Although statistics show a decrease in the average time of use of the smartphone, which amounted to 9.3% in 2018 and 6.5% in 2019 (according to the forecast), this applies only to adult Americans, but not Millennials or generation Z, which spends much more time in gadgets.
This means that in technological dependence we are waiting for a rollback. Applications take more than 90% of the total time to use your smartphone.
Mechanisms that restrict the use of applications will not solve the problem, but less exploiting applications and consumer education to protect against the “loop of pleasure” on which these applications are built are clearly necessary.
It has only been a little more than a decade since the advent of smartphones, and therefore their users are still slightly stupid when it comes to the time of their use (especially in Asia and developing countries).
