I think you've got it wrong. It has nothing inherent to do with digital.
It's about communication. That is the sole reason people can't leave their mobiles alone.
We are a social species and are hardwired for communication to the point that it can be abused (for instance, by social media companies).

Digital is just a means to an end. If 'analog' allowed people to do the same stuff on portable devices then everyone would be using analog. Most people don't care about analog vs digital. Most people don't even know the difference. They just use technology.
