    I do have a smartphone, and I enjoy using lots of its functions; that being said, there are many functions that I still primarily use my desktop for, such as Facebook. I think that keeps me from being a compulsive phone-checker (I hope so, anyhow). I do confess that I still feel naked if I find I've left the house without it, like last weekend when I went shopping... turns out my mom was urgently trying to contact me during that time for something too :(

    I don't text a whole lot either, which keeps my phone-tether fairly loose.

    I just keep my smartphone as barebones as can be to minimize my dependence on it. Data browsing and GPS comes in handy when I'm lost or need to look something up on the go, but otherwise I only use it for texts, calls, and music. It's sad how prevalent smartphone addiction is becoming.

    I still don't have a smartphone, and still don't feel like I'm missing out. Seeing stuff like this reaffirms that.
