What do you think about Smartphones?

    Smartsphones have basically changed my life. To begin with, I am able to maintain my online business from it. Now, at no time in the future I need to sit at my PC to get work down. I am able to listen to books on my phone also. I often read a lot and go through six to ten books every month.
    Having the ability to hear them out spares me so much time.

    Last, I am able to connect with my family and close friends. I travel an impressive measure and I am constantly in a rush. Having a smartphone has empowered me to remain connected with them and offer my encounters, as they happen. In this way, I feel more efficient and connected with those I love.

    Well I have two opinions on this.

    1.) How would my life be if they didn't exist at all, or if I didn't have one/have the experience of owning one even when other people have them.

    2.) How it currently impacts my life.

    To discuss opinion one first. I think a lot of us can relate to a moment where someone elderly or a parent said "oh we didn't have that back then". How did they exactly manage to get in contact with people, take pictures, be so technology capable? Well they made do with whatever. Disposable cameras, bulky flip phones, payphones etc. They made use. Yes life would probably not go as smoothly and a lot of people wouldn't have some opportunities but overall people go by.

    Next I think that my current phone being a iPhone 7 is honestly more of a tool than a necessity for me. I don't really play that many games on it as I don't have ADHD or ADD syndromes causing me to need to play or be occupied by something (looking at you fidget spinners). Honestly I use it for a lot of pictures (mainly school work or other random stuff), internet, calls/texting, or social media (which is another whole topic to discuss if/how it impacts us). It is not something I necessarily need, just something good to have.

    Honestly the way you use your cellular device and the capabilities it holds comes down to you and your needs/wants. For you if it is good for business and other functions that you NEED to use, then all power to you to use that thing to best of its ability. For me I just use like I mentioned thousand times as an added benefit of being fortunate enough to own a phone.

    Back when I was in high school, smart phones were unheard of(everyone had that godforsaken Motorola Razr). Blackberries were the closest thing to a smart phone, but no one had one unless their business paid for it (mainly because every text cost you a few cents and mobile data cost around $100 a month for a shitty connection). No one really thought much of smart phones because mobile data was expensive and slow, and most phones (like my first phone the 'smart' Palm Pixi) didn't have built in wifi.
    It wasn't until smart phones had wifi as a standard that smartphones took off, and with advancements in mobile data, life without one is unthinkable. I couldn't imagine not being able to access the internet 95% of the time.

    I think smartphones have helped me a great deal. I have a multitude of anxiety issues, and without my phone to occupy me, I would probably be unable to do a lot of things. On the other hand, I think it is contributing to the corruption of our youth. If you are constantly stimulated by an ipad and a smartphone nonstop, your brain will not develop to withstand having little stimulation at all, you simply don't learn to sit still. Not to mention, everybody is distracted by them in classroom and they fail to take in the subject they are learning, or they constantly get in trouble for having it out. All in all, I think they have helped our society grow in terms of businesses and overall connection, but they can also be harmful and we must teach people to use them responsibly.

    Businesses need to choose the status of technologies to meet up with the requirements and needs of these customers. The systems and methods employed by them should be suitable enough to improve the performance of the venture. There are several platforms that may be selected for organization mobility. Let's take a look at them to comprehend their fundamentals which can help you a great deal in selecting one for employees around the globe as they are making very good use of cellular devices through enterprise flexibility.

    The release of Smartphones and such other cellular devices has considered the productivity of several businesses to another levels. In the event you haven't still chosen enterprise mobility alternatives, you are actually absent from something. Such alternatives can make your business prosper quickly and easily. With such alternatives, internet marketers can make decisions efficiently. And most of us really know what difference good and swift decision making can make.

    I think smartphones are the great turn of the century. However, I do not really like the idea of having to always follow the most current technology. After all, the vast majority of people can not afford to buy a smartphone every 3 months or so.

    I think smartphone are very good but it depends on the way you used it.
    You can take it both the ways,
    It's a wow if you use it in a better way.
    You've got a lot of apps that help you improve your
    knowledge. There are tons of educational apps, YouTube
    can teach you in a better way, you can learn ENGLISH
    online (Incase if you're not good at it)
    It is also a curse for those who use it the negative way.
    You can play some useless games, watch porn, watch
    movies, chat with some unknown people on Facebook,
    Instagram, etc,.
    Everything has a pro and a can use it the best way you can..

    Smartphones have changed communications at a big scale. When I was a kiddo, cellphones were something you can see at a sci-fi movie or tv show. Then they appeared and evolve into this partner you take everywhere with you. You even have a personal assistant on your phone! You can talk to someone who is already in the next day, watch tv or movies, play games, manage your business, calculate medicine doses, pay your bills, even turn on your oven or lights at home while you are on your way there. If that is not great, then I don't know what is it.

    Smart phones have made living life easier and more fun, but as it has its own pros it carries along a few cons too.
    With a smartphone patience could be a person virtue, with a smartphone waiting can become fun. Once you have to wait for someone or something your smartphone can come handy, keeps you busy listening to music, reading books and probably surfing the Internet. But it can become addictive, you can spend much time with it and it could make one socially isolated. The overuse of smartphones can led to the development of a smartphone etiquette.
