But what is a smartphone?
A smartphone is a mobile device that combines functionality of a phone with the personal management thanks to the different applications. A smartphone is a phone that because of the many functions available is very similar to a computer. It has its own operating system, you can surf the Internet at high speed, connect to the PC and synchronize email and other information. It has expandable memory that allows you to store many files, the advanced camera to take high quality pictures and is equipped with (808) 381-3368, 8653271846 and data connection.
A smartphone is useful for work, because you can read Word files without PC; but also for leisure, because you can play and relax anywhere. Push mode allows you to view emails and receive them automatically. The fact that it is small and portable does not sacrifice the user experience. Ease of use and portability combined with the small weight and computing power gives you the advantages of the computer technology on the go.
The development of these devices, however, has changed the habits and lifestyles of individuals in industrialized countries. Not too long ago the interaction and communication was through voice channel, now there is an evolution towards a kind of “virtual” communication, in which the interaction is less pronounced. You don’t explicitly have to tell anyone about what’s going on in your life, but anyone who is interested can simply find out.
The previous period in which the communication was influenced by the older generation of phones was very similar to face-to-face, where communication included the dialogue. The new ways of communicating that are less personal have transferred communication to a somewhat parallel universe.
In the past the model of dialogue was more like a tennis match, in which the two participants exchanged words back and forth, now it is more like a puzzle, where each piece serves to rebuild a fragmented story.
For example, just look around public places to find out how communication has changed through these devices: there are those who are writing an email, post on social networks, others use an app to give colleagues some updates, others play games in multiplayer. The rise of the smartphones is slowly changing us from social to digital beings.
