Time of Smartphones – level 2

11-06-2018 15:00

A lot of people spend too much time on their phones which can stop them from real relationships and real life. One study found that people use their phones up to five hours a day.

Big tech companies are under pressure over the addictiveness of their phones. Both Google and Apple designed ways for people to limit the time they spend on their phones. With their latest software, you can see how much time you spend on your phone and which apps you use. With this insight, you can decide to use your phone less.

If you need extra help, your phone will tell you when to stop using it and go do something else.

Difficult words: addictiveness (being addictive – you have to use something too much if it is addictive and you get addicted to it), insight (information, understanding), decide (choose).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
