Young adults and screen time

Is it normal to spend EVERY waking minute on phone? I feel really concerned for her (age 20) as that's all she does. Other than bathroom or eating that's literally all she does at home. She has friends and sometimes goes out, but on a day to day basis there's nothing else but the phone. No other interests and will only put down phone to sort room out once it has got to a state where she can't ignore it anymore. Doesn't seem depressed, and no concerns about studies etc in term time. But for example if it's the weekend and she's home that's all she'll do for two or three days straight. If she's awake for 12 hours then 11 of them would be on phone.
