This is a worldwide issue now, but never do I see it as much as I do in Hong Kong. I first started noticing this properly when I kept on having to avoid people in the street who simply didn't look where they were walking. Sudden stops, swerves, or other hard to predict movements take place, just because they're looking at their phones, and not where they're going. Public transport is a particular location for the phone hypnotism, but at least they're not trying to walk ! I know it happens everywhere now, but Hong Kong wins it for me !
