I'd assume they mean that smart phones are the scourge of society and some people are hooked on them. Which is reasonably accurate.

Information (and free access to it) is the enemy of tyranny. I would have thought that smart phones would be a force for good, as long as people are able to recognise fake news and propaganda.

Oblivion is the state of not being aware of what is going on around you so whether someone on a train in contact with the outside world on their smart phone is in more of a state of Oblivion than someone looking out of the train window or asleep is debatable. By calling it a slippery slope you are implying it is not a good thing which is also debatable. Personally I don't have a smart phone but quite enjoy the state of near Oblivion I get on a train from listening to podcasts and looking idly out of the window. I don't feel better or worse than someone who spends the whole journey on their smartphone. They could be doing anything on it. Who am I to judge? Noone has remotely persuaded me that smartphones are evil.
