Abstract

This study aims to determine the relationship between the problematic smartphone use (PSU) and the problematic internet use (PIU). It was hypothesized that there was a positive relationship between the problematic smartphone use with the problematic internet use. This non-experimental quantitative study involved 601 students from X and Y high schools, selected through the convenience sampling method. The data were collected through online questionnaire, statistically analyzed using the Pearson Correlation Coefficient, and descriptively based on empirical categorisation. Findings revealed that problematic smartphone use was positively correlated with problematic internet use. Furthermore, 42.8% or 257of the total participants showed a mild problematic internet use. Additionally, 71% of the total participants showed moderate problematic smartphone use. Therefore, the higher the problematic internet use, the higher the problematic smartphone use. The researchers revealed to the participants that there was a 60% chance of the participants having PSU, if they experienced PIU.
