Thank you so much for sharing this thought-provoking film! I often feel myself awkwardly asking my friends and family to put their phones down when I find it as a hindrance to our conversations. The engagement scene really resonated - had my fiancée had his iPhone in my face while he engaged, I would have chucked it across the room. I agree with the message of the filmmaker in that smartphones and their "advanced" functionality actually distracts from experiencing real life moments, while people try to capture them for sharing on social media.
