These days smartphones are double-edged swords. They make our communication with our loved ones easy and on the other hand, they can distract us from important meetings, and suck up our time which we could’ve have used for more productive tasks.
We just can’t resist texting, tweeting, and snap chatting during class time. Or say it’s pretty hard to compete with a very funny YouTube video while we are at work.
As per a research, while performing complex tasks, the presence of cell phones did little to keep people from successfully finishing easy tasks.  Also we have become so manner less that we land up looking into our phones when people are trying to communicate with us face to face, which in a way impacts our "interpersonal closeness and trust".

So, tell us how and in what all situations does your smartphone distract you & impact your life & productivity.  

We are smarter than our smartphones, so it's time that we learn how to manage the distractions our phones cause.  Knowing when to tune out your data & text messages will not only help you get more done, but will improve the quality of your communications & productivity.

Remember: Phones should ramp up your productivity, not hinder it. Don’t be afraid to use technology or set boundaries if it improves the way you live your life.
