There’s a feeling somewhere inside that you’re missing something, a sense of insecurity sometimes prevails… welcome to the world of cell phone addiction! Cell phones are having a great influence in our live and are very convenient to keep with us. Cell phones are a faster and more effective way to transfer information. Indeed, it is a resource that gives its user’s great advantages.
They say, if something is of great utility (usage, etc), it will surely have its own problems as well; cell phones are no exception. In earlier times cell-phone used to be a craze, symbol of money and success but nowadays even kids find it a neccessity of life. I would want to list some quick good and bad things about a typical cell phone. The list is not typical to any phone, just a generalization. Advantages : • The more you talk, the more you know how to talk and the better your communication skills become.
This is applicable if you’re a sensible person and keep note of your interacting habits over the phone. It can be a communication tutorial! • Nothing more than a cell phone comes to great help in emergency. You are driving by the freeway and the vehicle jams and cell phone comes to your rescue. You are stuck in a lone place, again call somebody and ask for directions. • Parents can be a little less worried about their kids by being in constant touch with them. • If you’re a net-savvy, you can have Internet handy all the time and anywhere the signal of your cell phone provider can reach. Trendy and stylish cell phones can be used as a bait to receive attention. It can be part of fashion and styling. • From the industy and economy point of view, cell phone companies (communication industry) is florishing with market capital in billions. This is a good thing for the economy to be smooth and healthy. • Companies find it yet another medium to advertise their products; so another medium to reach the consumers. • Nowadays, cell phones are not just phone calls; they’re about messaging, vidoe, songs, games, alarm clock, notes, calendar, reminder, etc.
So one equipment, lots’ of uses! • Although cell phone use can be dangerous while driving but sometimes it can be a time-saver – you are driving and simultanesouly discussing some urgent matter as well. A sensible and only urgent usage during driving can be a great help at times. Dis-advantages : • Some people (especially teens) get so much addicted to cell phones for talking, video, messaging, games, etc that they forget the real purpose of the phone and waste large part of their time in unnecessary interaction over their cell phones. Nothing more can be a distraction for a teached in the classroom, when a student’s phone rings. Cell phones are increasingly becoming a problem for the schools during classroom hours and are becoming a means of cheating during examinations and other kinds of ability tests. All this is really bad and does hurt the future of the student, who doesn’t realize that he/she is him/her-self responsible for it. • Health of those living in the vicinity of cell phone towers is becoming a growing concern.
Towers result into an area with concrete development along with destruction of natural features (vegetation etc) around the place. The towers also emit strong electromagnetic signals, which can be health hazard for those living nearby and who are getting exposed to strong radiations continuously during a good span of their lives. • While remaining in touch is good thing but sometimes it becomes annoying to have to deal with continuous incoming phone calls. You are on a vacation and your boss calls up, how does that sound! • Cell phone monthly bills are usually more than a landline bill.
Sometimes, we may not require to have a cell phone but we still buy one and start paying monthly bills; so it increases our monthly/recurring expenses. • Use of hands-free (wired/blue-tooth) can at times pass on loud sounds to our ears which can result in weakening of ear-drums. Nowadays, one can download lot’s of songs, so keeping the hands-free glued inside your ears for long hours can really affect the sensitivity of ears in the long run of life. • There have been cases of cell phone blasts, due to the excessive heating up of it’s battery. This can be a fatal issue; although rare. No joke, the surface of a cell phone has millions of bacteria and virus on it and that can be a strong reason of immediate skin problem on face or can result into other internal infections wherein the microbes creep inside the body through mouth or other openings. • Some use the keypad excessively; due to size restrictions the buttons and keypad of the cell phone are not natural for human hands; so excessive and prolonged typing can be an issue for fingers and finger joints. • The continuous exposure of signal to and from our cell phone can be a cancer concern, although to a meagre amount- research is still going on.
However, the mobile phone industry has long resisted any suggestion of a link to cancer, though it accepts that mobile phone radiation does affect the electrical activity in the brain. • The battery parts and other electonic parts of a cell phone can be environmental hazard if not disposed off properly through approved means. • A cell phone can be helpful while driving and talking in case of urgent matters but increasingly it is becoming cause of accidents because it deviates the attention of a driver; human brain can do only one thing at a time (however small span of time it may be). It can be a big time distraction and nuisance in calm and silent places like libraries, cinemas, restaruants, etc. Some cell phone users lose the sense of deciding when and where they can talk on the cell phone and where they can’t, without slightest consideration for the fellow beings around. • The mobile phone advertisements through messages are becoming a pain for the cell phone users. • Your SIM can be exploited as tracking device and if you’re an important person then that can be a big concern for you. Having said all about cell phones, I think they are one of the biggest boons humanity ever had.
If used properly and sensibly, cell phone can be a wonderful piece of utility in life and most of its disadvantages will simply be insignificant. Mobile Phones – a great invention?

Most of the problems with this essay are not related to the grammatical use of English. That is fine. It’s not uncommon for people to revert to babytalk and infantile ideas when they are aware that their vocabulary is limited.
Resist that tendency. This essay was not worth reading, and only partly because the assigned topic makes it hard to come up with anything worthwhile to say. It makes it hard — but not impossible. You should have done more work to express these banal ideas in a more appealing way — varied sentence structure, maybe, and a spicier vocabulary. Almost everybody has a mobile phone. But is it a great invention? I think there are both advantages and disadvantages. > This is a poor intro. It has no life, no “snap. ” It doesn’t draw the reader in.
It is plodding, obvious, and dull. ; For a tiny piece like this one, the opening sentence should be what is called a “hook. ” A hook grabs the reader’s attention and makes him want to read the following passage. > Until you do the mental work to come up with an intro that is a “hook,” don’t bother to write one at all.

The most advantage of having a mobile phone is you can communicate to your family, your friends, and your business no matter what where you are. > If you must say the self-evident, at least try to make the expression fresh or lively. Jetting to Europe or stalled in traffic, with your mobile phone you’re always in touch with your family, your friends, and your business.
We also use special applications for listening music, playing games, surfing the net, and texting messages. ; The problem with writing down something that everyone already knows is that it makes it sound like you are writing a story for people who are six years old. ; It is crucial that you remove that problem by saying these infantile things in a spicy or interesting way. Special apps for texting, listening to music, playing games, and surfing the web keep our phones plugged into our heads around the clock. Besides that, ; “Besides that” means “in addition to that” gt; You use “besides that” when you are going to add more of the same ; But in this case, you are not adding more of the same ; You are turning the direction of your remarks around ; For that use, the correct conjunction is “but” But there are lots of disadvantages. ; This ends rather abruptly ; for a better transition, add something more be careful. There are also some disadvantages to using our beloved cellies. Using mobile phones can harm our brains, especially for those who are under the age of sixteen. ; Unless “we” are all under the age of 16, it is better to refer to it as “the brain,” rather than “our brains. > Since this is far from a known fact, it is better to place the data in the opinions of SOME people Some researchers have claimed that mobile phones are harmful to the brain, especially for children. Excessive use of mobile phones has been accused of causing dizziness, and “radiations emmitted from the phone are dead harmful for the eardrum” , say many scientists. > “Many” scientists do not say this, and it is no doubt scientifically false > ONE scientist said this > He even used a slang expression in his quote: “dead harmful” is not standard English; it is a personal idiosyncrasy of speech. gt; The remark is in quotation marks, which means that it is a direct quote directly from the mouth of a specific person > “Many scientists” did not stand up all at once and chant this line, so you can’t attribute a specific utterance to a group. > If you don’t know his name, you can write “according to a publicity-seeking quack quoted in a tabloid journal of bad repute” or something like that > “emitted” is spelled wrong Excessive use of mobile phones has been accused of causing dizziness, and “radiations emitted from the phone are dead harmful for the eardrum,” according to one researcher in the field.
In addition, when we use mobile phones while we are driving, we will get in an accident. > This is logically false, and the ridiculous and simplistic nature of statements like this contribute to making this piece infantile > Using cell phones probably increases the risk of accidents > It is now considered un-PC to call them “accidents” on the grounds that they are caused by avoidable driver misconduct > traffic accidents are now called “car crashes”
In addition, using a mobile phone while driving hikes the risk of getting into a car crash. In summary, mobiles are a great invention but they still have many issues. You have to protect yourself from the bad effects of mobiles if you choose to have one. > Just delete this on the grounds that it is not adding a single thing that would repay the reader the trouble of seeing it. > It is not interesting, amusing, entertaining, informative, new, or any of the millions of other reasons why we might read something. gt; Do some mental work to think of “What would be good to say in conclusion? What can I say to wrap this up that would be good to read? ” > A teeny piece like this, with almost no ideas in it, does not need a “summary. ” > You might give it a “conclusion” just so it doesn’t end so abruptly > But a conclusion is not just a dull repeat of the self-evident and dull stuff that we JUST HEARD 15 SECONDS AGO!!! > Not unless you are writing for people who are 6. > You can’t say “they have issues. ” It’s ridiculous.
