In the past 15 years, mobile phones have transformed almost beyond recognition.
Once upon a time, our phones were chunky, heavy devices with monochromatic screens and minimal functions. Now, our iPhones and Android handsets serve as indispensable lifestyle-companions.
In fact, it’s estimated that over a quarter of Earth’s population has a smartphone (more than 2.16bn, as of late 2016).
This is hardly surprising, considering just how much today’s devices offer. We can watch movies, play games more advanced than we may have ever imagined possible, read books, enjoy video-chats with people all over the world, and stay connected with our social accounts 24/7.
However, smartphones’ ubiquitous nature must have some impact on the way we live, mustn’t they? Most importantly, have they changed the way we behave in relationships?
