Smartphones: How We ALL Became Addicted...

It wasn’t too long ago when smartphones were first introduced. But, they have quickly become a basic necessity in the lives of millions of people across the globe.

Let’s be honest. Who can imagine their life without their smartphone in their hands? It didn’t really take that long for these devices to become an integral and essential part of day to day life. It was revealed that half of the world’s population use smartphones right now.

But, how did these handy devices change how people do things?

A decade ago, people didn’t even think that it was possible to use a mobile device to talk with another person. Now, it has become common to engage in all kinds of conversations using their phone’s built-in personal assistants. From getting recommendations for the best dining spots in the city, getting directions to the nearest hospital, ordering chocolates online for their special someone to dictating emails, smartphones and their integrated assistants can pretty much do anything and everything under the sun.

People today can no longer imagine their lives without their smartphones by their side. These devices have evolved to the point that they are no longer just a mere tool for communication but also a constant companion that helps cater to your unique needs while making your life so much easier and simpler. You can choose from millions of apps and download those that are useful and interesting for you, such as apps to remind you of important appointments, build websites, edit photos and videos, track your health and control your connected smart appliances.

Doing business using your mobile devices has also gone beyond spending time in a coffee shop and making endless calls. Invoicing, design, emails, and online research have all become possible today. Capturing videos and images even while on the go has also been made easier while integrated security features make it safe to conduct business no matter where you are. In the field of education, learners don’t just get to access the internet but can even reach out to the best teachers and professionals in the world with just the use of their smartphones.

Half of the users of smartphones use the device to access the different health-related services. Whether they use apps to verify prescriptions or monitor glucose levels, use the device to find healthy recipes or make it their personal fitness tracker, smartphones have affected how people deal with their health and wellness.

But even with the incredible technology that pretty much puts the whole world right in your hands, the truth is that the evolution of smartphones still remains to be in its infancy. This is because technological innovations are still moving forward and beyond with the giant names in the industry leading the race as they to address and cater to the needs and desires of the users today and in the future.

So, the next time you look at your smartphone, don’t forget that there is so much more to it than just being a device to help you check your social media accounts or take photos.
