Smartphone users are not that smart

It seems be to normal for us to say smartphones are smarter than human beings, but an experiment done by University of Texas shown that human with smartphones around them are easily disturbed.

800 smartphones users are grouped into two which one with smartphone around them and the other don’t. They are required to finish a task.

The experiment result showed that people without smartphone around them can do better than the one with smartphone around them. This is because people with smartphone are distracted by the smartphone as they will often check on their device, their cognitive ability is lower.

PS: If your project deadline is near, leave your phone away from you!
