Research has emerged about the disadvantages of smartphones, specifically how cellphone use in the early stages of childhood lead to harmful consequences in the future. For example, it has been explored that smartphones are harmful in leading to kids believing that their lives are less adequate and perfect than that of their peers because of social media, and that the social aspect of teens is degraded because of their ability to “hide behind their phones. While there are numerous articles and studies of these negative side effects, this research project will focus on the positive aspects of smartphone use.
