So a new Dashboard in Android, for instance, shows you how you're spending time on your device, including time spent in apps, how many times you've unlocked your phone, and how many notifications you've received.

Then you, my friend, are addicted to your phone. Like the iPhone X, you can swipe up on one of the screens to quit it, but you can also long press inside them to select text.
