Don't worry. I felt the same the first few days I had my first smartphone. In a few weeks, you are going to casually throw it on the table without thinking about it.
Meanwhile, here's my advice.
1) Download Plague, Inc.
2) Destroy humanity, once or twice, depending on what you need.
3) Feel better and strangely proud of yourself.
Edit: The person from the (early) 90s would be automatically arrested for weating an entire outfit of fluo. So he/she won't even see Smartphones...
More seriously, I think that person would be more suprised from the advance of computers. After that, seeing a tiny computer in everybody's hands is not that weird...
That reminds me of my grandmother. She basically gave up on technology after the invention of the VCR (and after offering me the VHS of E.T for Christmas. She's the coolest grandmother).
Now, she's older. When I presented her with a smartphone to play a game, she was not suprised a tiny bit. It's like she admitted that she was living in the future now, so it's not stranger than a new vacuum cleaner...

I'm in a somewhat related situation with the new laptop I got. It's Windows 8 and touch screen... I've had it about a week and a half, and I still feel totally overwhelmed. It honestly took me about 2 hours after first switching it on to figure out where the hell my desktop was. And it took me like 4 days to figure out how to close programs that were open from the start menu. It was really embarrassing to be finishing up a lesson and not know how to close the programs on my computer. Or how to shut it down without using ctrl+alt+del. I've spent a decent portion of this last week and a half feeling way older than I should. THE FUCK IS THIS NEWFANGLED TECHNOLOGY.
I'd be completely lost with a smart phone. It would take me a week to figure out how to call someone. And another 3 days to figure out how to send an SMS.
