Cell phones have become an indispensable part of our lives. Wherever we go, we take them with us, don’t we? Sometimes if we had forgotten to take our cell phone with us, we feel as though we have left our shirt at home. However, there are a few people who still are against the use of cell phones stating it is more bane than a boon to human beings. Like it or not we can’t be without the cell phones. The truth is they are more than just mere gadgets to us. They are our best companions when we are alone. We can do a lot of activities on the cell phones like sending messages, listening to songs, taking pictures, watching videos, and getting connected to the Internet. Let us now take a look at some of the main advantages and disadvantages of the cell phones.

Advantages

The main advantage of having the cell phones is that it helps us to stay connected to the world irrespective of where we are. Besides the interactive part of it, the cell phones are very important for emergency purposes. If by chance, you are trapped in an unknown place or held up with work in the office, you may not be able to find the home phones such as the ATT Home Phone or any other source of communication. In such cases, you can make calls and inform your family members what the situation is like and when you will return home. Convenience is the key element of the cell phones. And if you are bored while travelling then you can use the wide range of applications in your cell phones and enjoy the time out. Of course, you have access to a slew of applications like calling, messaging, listening to music, watching and sharing videos, games, alarm, reminder options, calendar facility to record the date and time important events and so on. Nevertheless, if you are an Internet freak, then you may check out for emails, surfing the web for the latest news or information or watch videos. Apart from the personal benefits, the cell phone is also one of the most booming sectors in the world of communication. There are hundreds of companies spread across the world that provide telecommunication services. This creates a lot of job opportunities for the people which in turn will reflect on the country’s economical progression.

Disadvantages

The main disadvantage of the cell phones is they kind of make us addicted to them. It certainly leads to a lot of time wastage. We sometimes forget to do our work while we are on the phone talking or messaging our friends. They also are a major source of distraction for us. It is not only the teenagers who get distracted but also the working people. People sometimes get more involved in their cell phones and take a lazy approach on their office work. This happens from the basic worker to the team manager to the people in the top level management. Another major disadvantage of the cell phones is that they emit an ultra violet radiation which is very harmful for out health. Over exposure the Ultra violet radiations leads to problems like brain tumor and cancer that are not things one can easily get rid of. Another issue of the cell phone is the monthly bill which is always on the higher end for many. And the frequent repair and servicing of the cell phone also costs us more.

Tips

One good way to stay away from the negative effects of the cell phone is by using the headset while talking. The main thing is to keep the cell phone at a moderate distance while talking so that it doesn’t harm the brain cells. Another thing you need to keep in mind is to talk less. Or talk for shorter durations on the cell phone and use the home phone for longer conversations.
