Abstract: Industrial era 4.0 which is increasing with unlimited needs. This can be seen from the use of smartphones as a basic human need. This need is not only used for social media but can be used in digital-based learning. So that student learning is increasing. The purpose of this study is to represent student learning about digital books. This study uses a phenomenological approach. Participants consisted of five Vocational High School (VHS) students who have smartphones and also use digital books in learning. The analysis was carried out using data triangulation (verification, validation, and validity). The results explain that smartphone items are important for VHS students, smartphones are more widely used for social media, the use of digital books on learning to look for material quickly, students are less interested in using digital books because they contain text and pictures only, ideally, digital books have learning videos inside it. These three representations can be a reference for learning needed for students. So it needs to be applied in digital class-based learning in schools.
