As of last year, I wasn't able to have a smartphone for it was malfunctioning, and it isn't in the warranty period anymore. During that time, I bought a regular keypad phone because it is cheaper alternative. Until today, I was able to use my regular phone. I notice, that without smartphone, I don't usually hold my phone. I regularly use laptop though because of my work. I am working online by the way. Despite of always using the laptop, I tend to control myself in using it without noticing that I used lesser time facing the computer or laptop for social media and non sense things. Would you dare to live a day without smartphone? I was able to do it for a year now. It makes you more productive.

I have a smartphone, as I use it for more than talking and texiting. I don't have a home phone, so I do need a phone to do the things that do to earn money, sa I do have apps on my phone that will make me money, but I need to do them more to earn money. I can also do mylot from my phone while I am not at home, so as you can tell, I do use my phone quite a bit. Iuse it every day for one thing or another.

You are assuming that the rest of the world use smartphones. If so, take a good look everywhere you go. Not everyone likes smartphone. There are many business persons who do not like smartphones. They have secretaries to handle the emails, and calls.

I own a smart phone and can't be without it during my business hours. But at home, I don't know where it is most of the time. Living without smart phone might be a bit boring but not impossible. It is actually fun when used in moderation.

I would have to agree :) We just really need to control everything in moderation.
