Smartphone Usage

Short Description: Smartphone distribution continuously increases over the last years and today’s mobile phones and smartphones offer a plethora of functions. However, little is known about who uses these functions and what are the beneficial or perhaps detrimental consequences for social relationships, health, and occupational success.

Methodological Details: Participants were asked whether they used a mobile phone. If they did, they were asked the question “How often do you use the following functions of your mobile phone?” concerning 14 functions. Examples of the functions include calls, text messages, games, and navigation. Furthermore, participants were asked which operating system was installed on their mobile phone.
