There is a condition known as “smartphone pinky” that’s being talked about on the internet, in which the pinky becomes deformed due to the constant cradling on a smartphone. A lot of smartphone users are convinced they have this diagnosis. Doctors, however, are saying it is not real and that it would take many more hours of holding a phone to cause a deformity than the typical consumer engages in. It turns out, injuries to the thumb are more likely with a smartphone.
