Addicted to smartphones or smartphone?


New Member
Hi people,

Can anyone help me confirm which one is the most correct? Or are they both acceptable?

People are addicted to smartphone nowadays. (Here I meant to say "smartphone " in general)
People are addicted to smartphones nowadays.(Here I meant to say "their smartphones" )

Many thanks!

    I think we would only use the plural in both sentences.

    We don't use 'smartphone' in a general way like that.
