Abstract

Smartphones have become an important medium of connection and information. It is frequently
used for social and academic purposes. This study examines the intricate relationship between
smartphone usage patterns and academic performance among university students. Data was
collected from 300 participants with the help of a Google survey form. Descriptive statistics,
ANOVA (Analysis of Variance), factor analysis, and logistic regression were used for the
analysis of data. The findings revealed that the majority of students spend 1-3 hours daily on
their smartphones with social media emerging as the primary purpose for usage. Despite
prevalent smart phone usages, students reported relatively high cumulative grade point
averages (CGPAs), indicating positive academic achievement levels. However, the analysis
also uncovered that smartphone usages, brings distractions while studying. Logistic regression analysis identified the significant predictors of CGPA, highlighting the importance of managing smartphone habits effectively. Multi-dimensional scaling (MDs) and factor analysis provided insights into the clustering of factors related to smartphone usage and academic performance. Overall, these findings underscore the need for targeted intervention to promote responsible smartphone usage habits and support academic success among university students.
