Many people think technological devices such as smart phones, tablets and mobile phones bring more disadvantages than advantages. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

Whether smartphones are a boon or a bane is a question we should all ask ourselves. In my opinion,
I do agree that cell phones have many disadvantages, their advantages clearly outshine them. On one hand, these technological devices have put so many challenges for us.
For example
, the radiation emitted by it impacts our health. Not only
but, it's
very addictive. Studies have found that young kids who use cell phones frequently have less attention span compared to others. Many kids fall into
addiction trap and easily get distracted from their studies.
, children now spent more time playing video games in it rather than doing physical exercises.
, the advantages are far more than the disadvantages. Smartphones have decreased the communication barrier to nil. Back in the day, sending letters was the only way of long-distance communication, which could take even years to receive.Meanwhile,
device made it possible within milliseconds. Whether be it talking to one person from another part of the world or even sending a message to millions of people, all can be done with these devices in your hand.
, the ease of getting information was never
easy. Smartphones have made the student's life so easy. In
recent pandemic, most of the schooling had become online-based.
could never have been possible without these technological devices. In conclusion, I do agree that cell phones have many side effects but it's nothing compared to how much resourceful it is to us. The challenges it creates should not be ignored but solved.
