The answer is yes and having a sore neck from using your phone is common and the incidence is increasing.
A recent study from the Australian Catholic University showed that women who use their mobile device greater than 5.4 hours per day were at increased risk of suffering neck pain.
The average weight of a human head is about 5-6 kg. When the head is flexed to 60 degrees the load on the neck is increased to about 30 kg.
The constant loading of the neck joints and discs can lead to micro strain and cause pain.
