  3. 3. However useful and helpful smart phones are, they have got disadvantages of their own: <ul><li>Smartphone's have had some negative effects on their users for example: </li></ul><ul><li>People have become anti-social: </li></ul><ul><li>Smartphone users spend a lot of their time making use of the wide variety of applications their phones have to offer and this makes them negligent towards the society in a way that they prefer to sit down all day and communicate with other people using their phones instead of engaging in social activities within the society. so this means people don’t do anything useful but only spend most of their time using their smart phones. </li></ul><ul><li>This kind of behavior has made people so lazy and unproductive because they spend more time using their smart phones instead of doing more constructive work.
