Read the passage. Then answer the questions.

A smart phone is a mobile phone built on a mobile operating system, with more advanced computing abilities than a common phone. The first smart phones enabled users to send and receive emails. Later models added the function of portable media players, pocket video cameras, and GPS navigation units to form one multi-use device. Many modern smart phones also include touchscreens and web browsers that display web pages.

A recent report says we spend an average of two hours and 40 minutes each day looking at a smart phone. That doesn’t mean making calls, but playing phone games and browsing the Web.

Nowadays we always find people checking emails in a restaurant, taking a picture of the food when it arrives, or checking a message during a conversation instead of traditional communication. It’s no secret that our lives are being affected by our smart phone’s obsession.

However, this phenomenon has never been presented so vividly as in the short film I Forgot My Phone. Despite only being online on YouTube for a few days, it has already been viewed more than 10.5 million times. Whether it will be screened in the cinema remains to be seen.

Ironically, YouTube’s data show that the site gets a billion views per day from mobile devices, so a lot of those people watched it on their phones.

The short film, written by and starring actress Charlene deGuzman, shows that people obsessed with being more connected to others through their smartphones than who they are physically with in the real world. To a certain extent, we all do it.

What does the passage mainly discuss?
  • Advantages of mobile phones
  • A ten-million-view video
  • Success of "Finding my phone"
