This study is about the effect of cell phone use during face-to-face social interactions. Past research has shown that cell phone use decreases levels of enjoyment during social interactions, thus we conducted a conceptual replication of Dwyer et al. (2017) study to test this. We predicted that participants who used their phones during a social interaction will experience lower levels of enjoyment compared to participants who did not use their cell phones.
