Using a smartphone is a phenomenon that cannot be separated from the daily life of today’s world community.

Because, through a small device, you can already play games, draw pictures, surf the web, take pictures, and so forth.

With the many functions that smartphones have, it’s no wonder people spend more time on their cellphones than others.

In fact, the habit of spending a long time with a smartphone is not good.

The bad impact of spending a long time on a smartphone revealed by the latest research. The study found that those who were classified as addicted to smartphones had brain changes that were physically similar to drug addicts.

In the study, the researchers used an MRI machine. Testing was carried out on 48 people, 22 of whom were categorized as having a smartphone addiction.

“Given its widespread use and increasing popularity, this study questions smartphone irregularities, at least in individuals who may be at higher risk of developing addictive behaviours related to smartphones,” the researchers said, as quoted by Ubergizmo.

Smartphone addiction is not new. However, the report said the latest findings of the researchers were considered alarming.

Therefore, technology companies such as Apple and Google have introduced special features for their smartphones and operating systems. Features are designed to help reduce the time users spend using a smartphone.
