Abstract: The invention of the smart mobile device has brought about a tremendous transformation in our lifestyles, especially among young people who are keen to adopt new technology. As a smartphone is just like a microcomputer, users have a mobile office in their pocket, and office mobility has grown at a dizzying pace. While smartphones allow close interaction, some problems have started to appear. People are increasingly ignoring the world around them as they become obsessed with their smart mobile devices. The swift progress of mobile Internet technology and the availability of hundreds of thousands of applications have created the phenomenon of 'smartphone addicts', and the number of addicts is expected to grow. In this study, we conducted focus group interviews with Hong Kong university and college students with the aim of understanding the lifestyle transformation brought about by smart communication.
