In brief: Probably Not

Mental instability is the inability to manage one's emotions and thoughts in a productive manner. Checking your mobile device isn't connected to this psychological phenomenon.

In brief: Not necessarily

However, if it is incessant that interferes with other areas of life - that is a problem.
