As the name ‘mobile phone’ suggests, these devices are telephones that you can carry with you in your hand. They work by sending signals (often satellite signals) across the globe so that you can communicate with friends, colleagues and family members no matter where you are.
Mobile phones can be used to send text messages, to take phone calls, to video chat, and also to perform functions such as searching the web, taking photographs and playing games. Modern mobile phones – or smartphones – tend to have a touch screen design.
Mobile phones are very useful devices. They keep us connected with our loved ones. However, it is crucial not to overuse mobile phones. They can become addictive, and they can also distract us from face to face communication with the people that we see immediately around us. Keep a good balance between life and technology!
