College students who are always on their phones are more likely to have anxiety and poor grades.

Researchers at Kent State University surveyed roughly 500 students.

They found on average, students spent five hours a day on their phones and sent - 77 texts.

As cell phone use increased - anxiety levels went up and grades went down.
