Nowadays, smartphones are always on-hand and allow users to connect with various services and networks at almost any time and any place. College students are the most rapid adopters of smartphone and could cause smartphone addiction. This case may be in�uencing health and behaviour in their life. We conclude that the individual life satisfaction will affect the intensity of their smartphone usage, and vice versa. This study aimed to determine the relationship between Smartphone Addiction and Life Satisfaction among college students. This study used a quantitative approach with correlational. To obtain data we used questionnaire method. For measuring the smartphone addiction we used Addiction Proneness Scale (SAPC) for Adolescents by Kim et al. (2014). Level of Smartphone Addiction Scale included 15 items. For measuring level of Life Satisfaction we used SWLS (Satisfaction with Life Scales) by Diener et al. (1985). Life Satisfaction Scale included 5 items. This study involved 251 college students in the range of age 18-20 years old of academic year 2017/2018 and 2018/2019 as a participant. From the data we analyzed by using statistically Pearson coefficient correlational formula showed that correlation value r = -0.258 with p = 0.00, P<0.05. The result showed that Life Satisfaction has a significant negative correlation with Smartphone Addiction among college students. The result was consistent with the study hypothesis that when college students has a weak level of Life Satisfaction, he surely had a strong level of Smartphone Addiction and if college students has a strong level of Life Satisfaction, he surely had a weak level of Smartphone Addiction. The result will be discussed in this study.
