  • According to me as every coin has 2 phases smartphone has also 2 phase one is good and other one is bed. Now a days most people mainly younger want to have smartphone .the smartphone is usually sees as status symbol in society.people waste their priceless time on these smartphones by playing games, chatting,etc.
    But smartphone has also many advantages like smartphone is not less than computer in any manner.we can do internet
    surfing,video calling.By installing different apps like Google maps,whether forecasting,railway info,etc. We can get information.
    So smartphone is good for those who use this is in good way otherwise conventional phone is better than last ,I want to say we shouldn't be addicted of smartphone or we any other materialistic thing.

  • Latest trend of using smart phone is increasing day by day. All the users, especially the youth is using it the most, which is quite beneficial if and only if he or she uses it only to make their work easier, save time and gain knowledge rather than get addicted of it and ruin there life, as the youth are the future of the nation. Each and every human being has ability to control their life but if the life of ones is being control by Electronic Gadgets then he is not a human being. Now, its on you to decide whether you are human being or a gadget controlled toy.

  • smartphones have become an essential of ones life , everything has two faces a good and a bad face it depends on us which face we want, because smartphones are helpful because they are saving our time ,they are updating our knowledge , they are connecting us globally, they are updating our technology.but,at the same time they are making us physically and mentally weak., as you see now days generation like to play video games in there houses rather than going outside and playing outdoors game, so,there is a need of creating a boundary to make it beneficial rather then harmful...

  • We are holding a debate with a pole having two ends, but their lies a median which always help in maintaining the equilibrium. There is no denial that smart phones are latest trend, they are handy and simplify work in many a ways. At the same time we cannot deny the existence of the era without these smartphones, which way equally joyful and interactive. We are definitely facing the harmful effects of this technology which has pre-occupied the human being in its vicious circle.

    Smartphones help a lot in many a ways due to the availability and easy access to internet, anywhere and everywhere. From a toddler to old aged, the smart phone has its own utility in making the life easy going and more soothing. It is companion for the socially interactive person keeping him in touch with his social circle round the clock. At the same time, the smart phones do assist the loner to keep within himself without the requirement to look out for too many a things to pass his time without interacting with the physical being.

    Many of the harmful effects have been well narrated in the discussion. The device has made the world come closer, this is something that everyone accept. But we should also understand that these smartphones have made us get separated from the actual world and we just live into this world of technology. We get time to interact with our dear ones abroad through the interactive apps, but we fail to meet the ones living nearby, or for that matter, we often fail to devote time to our family members. At the end of the day we can make out that we have interacted more with the people in our social circle than our own family members with whom we reside.

    Smart phones have become addiction. Any technology can be good only when it is used as and when required. The untoward use of any technology makes human beings slave to their tangles. Human beings should realize their supremacy having a sixth sense and should make appropriate use of it to avoid the harmful aspect of this device. Rather than calling the smartphone as a latest trend, it would be better if we can limit its use to call it a handy technology.
