I prefer using mobilephone as little as posiible. Absolutely agree with this video about pros and cons of mobilephones. Advantages of smartphones is that you can get much information from it. Disadvantages of smartphones is that it is very harmful for our health.

Hi Jinhyuk. That sounds good. Are your friends like Sam, using their phones instead of talking face to face?

On the one hand, mobile phones help us to keep in touch with our friends and relatives who live far from us. We can easily make a phone call, send messages,...Moreover, we also can broaden knowledge because of easy access to the Internet.
On the other hand, mobile phones result in the lack of face-to- face communication, people who are always staring at the screen often have difficulty in interacting with others, they may feel confused to express their feelings as there is no support from emotion icons.

I think there are many the advantages and disadvantage of having a mobile phone, but very important is how we use it.

This video is focusing on an important issue! I have the feeling that we sometimes don't really talk with each other even if we sit together. I hope my friends could have seen this video. It would have made it easier to decide not to use our mobile phones while we are together.

Yeah, I agree with you. Sometimes, we don´t treasure things which is small and around us. At that time, chatting with our friends maybe very usual and we think it will last forever. But one day it will be valuable moment in our memory
Best wishes :)

Nowadays, mobile phones are everywhere. Undeniably, we use it in our everyday lives.
But there is a little detail.
And it is extremely important to understand this problem.
Phones damage our social life in real life.
While you speak with someone in internet , a human sits and sits . and the he or she realises that for you phone is more important than real life and goes away.
So it is increasingly important to be with real human and without web while you are in real life.
And I absolutely agree with this video about pros and cons of mobile phones.
For me it was a problem , but then it was fixed.
As conclusion, do only one thing at one time, and everything will be okay.

we all know that mobile phones have many advantages that help us to chat and contact with our friends. However, when we spend time chatting with someone in real life, we should turn off the phone. That will show them how important they are to us and of course it's a polite action :))

When I am with my friends I do use my phone a bit I mean that's what we do. We check our phones and show eachother stuff. There are way more pros than cons to having a mobile phone but some cons are that sometimes you're not as social as you would be without the phone and sometimes you get a little bit caught up in the online world instead of the real one. Pros on the other hand is that you can bond over stuff you've seen on the internet or talk to people far away.

Usually when im with friends I try to use my phone as little as I can.
Something that is good with mobile phones is that you can call someone wherever you are.
Something that is worse about mobile phones is that you can use is to much and make your neck and your eyes worse. /ilia
