Issue being discussed:A survey was conducted one people to see how close they were to their smartphones and the result was quite shocking. Some of them use their smartphones almost everywhere they go, even showering. Some even 'tell' their smartphone secrets that no one knows about them, even their best friends. It was quite surprising as I could not imagine how are these people going to live without their smartphones.
 
The write did not state his point of view so I shall state mine. In my opinion, nowadays many people are 'glued' to their smartphones. Smartphones have now become an important item in people's lives. However, because of this, relationships becomes cold. They spend too much time on their phones rather than communicating with one another. Sometimes, people are using their smartphones even though the other person is talking to them. I feel it's quite rude to not pay attention to the speaker as it shows that you do not give respect to that speaker. Some people are even worse, they become addicted to phones that separating themselves away from their phone is almost impossible. This could be very destructive to their social lives. I understand the importance of smartphones since so much convenience was brought by the smartphones but I think moderate usage of smartphones is then using the smartphones. If not, it would be smartphones 'using' us.

  1. I agree with your point that people are too addicted to smartphones nowadays and relationships between real human beings became cold. I think this is not good as we should communicate more with people in real life than that piece of metal. This will also result in people not being able to communicate with others properly because they had lost their communicating skills.
