The word Smart Phone is very popular nowadays, whether you’re 15 years old or 60 years old, everyone knows what a smart phone is. Does this mean phones are smarter than people?

We live in a very advanced technological world in which without smart phones, we certainly wouldn’t be able to go on about our daily activities.

The internet is something that is easily accessed on your smart phone, depending how fast you mobiles internet provider or WI-FI is; you’ll be able to view a website in just seconds. No need to look for a computer to do this anymore.
