    Default Do you have a smartphone addiction?

    How many of you feel like you are addicted to smartphones? I have long felt that I did. Having 30+ smartphones in the last 4 years. Although, I have slowed down considerably this year. Have had my iPhone 5S for three months now!

    I don't have a Smartphone addiction. I like and enjoy what I use. I usually stick with a device until it's time to upgrade.

    Every time I buy a smartphone, my intention is to keep it for a while. After a few weeks, I start to get the itch for something new. Because I never keep them long enough, I don't develop an attachment to them, which makes it easier to switch. For a while, I had gotten into a bad habit of swapping phones with people on Craigslist.

    I'm more interested in choosing the device that fits my needs completely, and then sticking with it until I can't, or until an upgrade.

    Yes, I have bought a Nokia 521 and a S3 in the past year thinking that I could switch away from my iPhone 4 because it has some signal issues. Well I have used the S3 for about 4 days now and have constantly thought about my iPhone.

    For me too. I know people that leave their smartphones at home or in the car and I always wonder how that happens. I have never left my smartphone anywhere. I don't even leave it on my desk at work if I'm not in my office. I have to have it with me always and I am always using it for various things. I have integrated my phone and tablet use into just about everything I do.

    I wish this was me. I would love to stick with one device, one ecosystem, one platform for at least a year. Two years would be awesome. I have spent/wasted too much money on smartphones, tablets, and laptops. I would like to start saving money instead of constantly burning through it. I would also like to develop a since of comfort with my devices. I give them up so quickly, I never build an attachment to them or feel truly "at home" with them. So it would be nice to really commit to one platform/device/ecosystem for a while.

    You have to take into account breakages, which for me happens fairly alot, and lack of all-day battery life. If the phone somehow loses its work capability because of those things I can't be telling myself to stick with a phone that isn't going to be fitting my work needs for the risk of my work getting jeopardized. Which is why I said nothing's for sure in this area.

    I kind of do this too. Or have the same philosophy. Regardless, I'm addicted to the smartphone. Are you saying you're not addicted? I would venture to guess that most regular members of iMore forums are addicted. If not to smartphones, then their assortment of techy toys, including smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktop puters. Either that, or it's an iMore addiction. I don't feel any shame though. It's all become a way of life that's fun and interesting. But take it all away from me and I get ill. I have withdrawals. My smartphone is an extension if my brain. Without it I feel lost and inept. And to think that just 14 years ago, all I had was a beeper.

    I enjoy using my 5s, but I'm not addicted to devices. I get a new phone every two years when I'm due an upgrade. That's why I'm on the "s phones," 4s and now 5s. Be interesting to see what the iPhone will look like in November 2015.

    Default Re: Do you have a smartphone addiction?

    I have had my iPhone 5S now for almost 5 months which is the second longest stint I have had a smartphone since my first one about 7 years ago. I am really pleased and impressed with my 5S. It has been everything I have needed it to be and more. No complaints. I think that I will keep it until at least the start of the new year. I just bought an Apple leather case for it and now I think that I'm set.
