The pairs who chatted in the presence of the cell phone reported lower relationship quality and less closeness.

Przybylski and Weinstein followed up with a new experiment to see, in which contexts, the presence of a cell phone matters the most.

The pairs also reported feeling less trust and thought that their partners showed less empathy if there was a cell phone present.Within the booth, they found two chairs facing each other and, a few feet away, out of their direct line of vision, there was a desk that held a book and one other item.Unbeknownst to the pair, the key difference in their interactions would be the second item on the desk.The new research suggests that cell phones may serve as a reminder of the wider network to which we could connect, inhibiting our ability to connect with the people right next to us.Cell phone usage may even reduce our social consciousness.
