The disadvantages (cons) of using Smartphone



Invention of Telephone and Cellphone

Telephone was invented mainly to communicate , but now we are living in a world where the phone has become smarter than the people. It's not just a phone, the high end smartphones are now more powerful than a super computer of old time.
Alexander Graham Bell invented Telephone in 1876, these made the way of communication much more easier. Things have become even more easier when the cell phone was invented in 1970. It was introduced by Motorola in 1973, and the weight of the phone was 1.1 KG (2.42 pounds) !!! Can you believe using a phone which weighs 2.42 lb? Today, people would rather prefer to use it as dumbbell for exercising.

Without any doubt modern smartphones are helping us in numerous ways, and making our life more enjoyable. I don't feel the need to make an article on this because all of us are already using a smartphone and well aware of the advantages. So, I have decided to write this article only on disadvantages, because it is very important to know the disadvantages so that we can limit our daily smartphone uses to avoid any harmful affect.

Disadvantages of overusing Smartphone

1) Less social interaction: People are now spending their spare moments on phone than doing any other real activities. Meaningless stupid memes in Facebook seems to be more interesting than doing any real activities. For example, in past if you are waiting for a friend in a park, you would take your time to enjoy the nature, think about new ideas or start doing some exercise in the park. But now people would engage themselves with their smartphone and kill the time.
We all have seen friends getting busy with their phone instead of talking to each other. Both Husband and wife seems to be busy with their phone when the baby is having a lonely time. This has to be the biggest con of using smartphone. Indeed smartphone is making our social life look stupid.
Lots of friends in Facebook but few in real life: You might have lots of friends/followers in your Facebook or twitter but how many real friends do you have in your life? How much time do you spend with your real friends compare to the time you spend in Facebook? Instead of going out and paying attention to our real friends, we are wasting our time in internet and end up feeling lonely in one stage.

We don't remember Birth date or Phone numbers anymore

Back in old days we used to memories the phone number or birth date of our closed ones but now we barely remember them. We have to depend on our smartphone's contact list to contact the person. Some of the people don't even bother to remember their own phone number. What if you lose your smartphone in an urgent situation and you have to contact with someone urgently? In this case you would not be able to reach the person even if somebody else was willing to help you by letting you call through their phone. So, lets remember the birth date and phone number of our closed ones because you never know when you will need it.

We don't live the moment

When something important or historic is happening in front of our eyes, what is the first thing people do? Instead of enjoying the moment live , they will switch on the camera of their phone and start recording it. Usually people who records never enjoys the moment because they don't live the moment. You will have the opportunity to see the recorded video later on but you won't get the opportunity to enjoy it live. Watching something live is never going to be equal to watching something from the video. When other people are busy in recording , you should stand out of the crowd and live the moment. Don't get upset for not being able to record, because there are plenty of dumb people have recorded and you can also watch it later on.

No privacy

We share too much personal information in internet such as where are we going, with whom we are going, our relationship problems, medical problems etc. Sharing such things online is never going to solve our problems. Instead of solving our problems it might create new problems. For young women/ teen girls this could life threatening as there are many predator out there looking to trap them.

Texting while driving

Texting while driving is not only dangerous but also life threatening. This is one of the major cause of vehicle accidents. Besides, if cops sees you texting while driving, you could end up with a big fine.Unfortunately, we are addicted to texting so much that we can't resist ourselves from texting no matter what we do. To be honest, I am also addicted to do texting and texting sometimes when I am driving. I am lucky not to face any problem yet and I am trying my best not to text while driving. I think if we have anything urgent while driving, we should call using the Bluetooth or park our car and then send messages as much as you like.

We sleep late at night

People who are addicted to their phone are more likely to sleep late at night. This could cause problems in waking up on time for work or school. This problems eventually might cause several health problems.

We don't remember location

We don't remember location because we are dependent on GPS . Although Google map is a very handy tool but it is always better to remember the location by using your brain. Because not all the time GPS will be available with you and sometime it takes some time to update new roads in the map.

We don't bother to learn proper spelling


What is the point of learning spelling when you have auto correction feature in your phone? Yes you can correct your spelling by using your phone but there will be times when you have to write physically by using your hand. So, learn the proper spelling to avoid embarrassing moments.

I hope you have enjoyed reading this article and limit your smartphone use to have a happy enjoyable life.
