It's tragic how addicted we are to our phones

How many hours a day do you spend on your smartphone or how often do you check it?

Probably a lot, just that you never realised it until now.

These photos compiled by Acid Cow show what a phone-addicted society that we have become, thanks to the evolution of technology and the Internet.

And yes, this is exactly how you look like when you are staring at your screens and oblivious to your surroundings.

The next time you are bored or want to kill time, perhaps consider taking a power nap, reading a paperback or engaging in some hands-on activities with your loved ones instead of reaching for your mobile devices.
