    Abstract

    The aim of this study is to examine the relationship of smartphone addiction, loneliness and gender differences. To collect data; demographic questionnaire, Smartphone Addiction Scale–Short Version (SAS-SV) and UCLA-Loneliness (Version 3) were applied for among 297 undergraduate’s students in Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman, Kampar campus. To analyse these data; correlation and t test were used. Results revealed that smartphone addiction was significantly related with loneliness. Furthermore, there were no significant gender difference in smartphone addiction and loneliness. However smartphone addiction is positively related to loneliness. While the study shows that smartphone addiction are positively related to loneliness in females undergraduates, on the other hand it has no correlation in males undergraduates. The higher smartphone addiction levels will lead to higher loneliness level. The results of the study were discussed together with the results of different studies and the limitations and recommendations were made.
