Still on smartphones

From a HN thread (emphasis mine): I've honestly grown to hate my iPhone. It hit me during a particularly stressful work period about a year ago that **this device doesn't bring any happiness to my life** and only brings anxiety, stress and saps my energy like a parasite. Once that stressful period was over the feeling didn't go away though and now I can't even get rid of it because all my friends use apps to communicate rather than SMS so it's either I allow this parasite in my life or I just go disconnect almost completely. and I don't think what I'm saying is ridiculous and I think Apple knows its bad otherwise they wouldn't be creating things like screentime tracking and focus modes.
