The use of smartphones has become an inalienable part of everyday life of people of almost all ages globally. 91% of the world population owns a mobile device. According to surveys, young people have the strongest need in mobile devices. 18-24 years old respondents reported they could not imagine their routine without smartphones as they take pivotal role in various processes: communication with friends and family, jobs, studies, reading news etc. On average, people spend 3 hours a day using mobile technologies.
For majority of the people, smartphones are the most convenient way for communication because they make the process of communication faster and easier. Emailing is faster, and messaging is also effective. People cannot leave from their home without taking the smartphones with them. Staff needs smartphone for faster and easier communication at their workplace. One more thing is that smartphones keep your family and friends in contact. For example, the parents are also gifting the children with smartphones for many reasons. The major reason for these types of gifts is the concern about the safety of the children. Without smartphones, family and friends seem to lose their contact. The business people are now making use of the smart phones to advertise their products. It is amazing how the smart phones have helped in marketing and strategizing. Reaching to target customers is much easier. The education sector has also been positively affected by the use of the smart phones technology in the society. The students can access valuable educative information from the internet with the help of smart phones. Those in online learning can access all notes and materials and easily submit assignments from any part of the globe. Health information and healthy practices can be accessible with the use of the smart phone technology.

The future looks very promising for the Smartphone. In just a few years, Smartphones have become very popular, and it is almost unheard of for someone to not own one. As major developers create new ways in which we can use our Smartphone, the opportunities our endless. I certainly believe the Smartphone will become more "human", as we can already see a preview of that in Apple iPhone's Siri.
