therefore a smart phone is necessary to do their work on the go and interact with people around the
globes. It came into my interest to conduct a survey on smartphones used by college students specifically
in Dubai Men’s College. The reason behind choosing this topic students are too attached to their phones
in a positive and negative way.

Definition of Terms
Smartphone
“A smartphone is a mobile phone with highly advanced features. A typical smartphone has a high-
resolution touch screen display, WiFi connectivity, Web browsing capabilities, and the ability to accept
sophisticated applications. The majority of these devices run on any of these popular mobile operating
systems: Android, Symbian, iOS, BlackBerry OS and Windows Mobile. (“What is a Smartphone?”,n.d)
Pie Chart
“Apie chartdisplays data, information, and statistics in an easy-to-read 'pie-slice' format with varying
slice sizes telling you how much of one data element exists. The bigger the slice, the more of that data
was gathered.”(Alcocer, p. 1)
Method
Mixed Methods
“Mixed methods research isa methodology for conducting research that involves collecting,
analysing and integratingquantitative(e.g., experiments, surveys) andqualitative(e.g., focus
groups, interviews) research.This approach to research is used when this integration provides a
better understanding of the research problem than either of each alone.”Ltd, W. O. (n.d.).
