It is true that cell phones have many advantages. With the high level modern technology, cell phones have changed our life rapidly during the past decade. Ten years age when I was about 13, cell phones were not so popular, but now, they are as common as tooth brushes. However, I’m going to talk about some negative aspects of having a cell phone.
First of all, cell phones are actually not so convenient and may cause some problems. Having a cell phone, people are able to talk everywhere without considering the distance between each other, but thieves can take that advantages too. As a result, cell phones frauds happen a lot nowadays and people just cannot stop them because those invisible thieves are far away. In spite of this, we almost receive junk mail and cheating messages every day and that’s annoying.
Secondly, with the convenience of modern technology, people more and more rely on their cell phones. People will say: “Cell phones are so important that we can’t live without them.” So, “cell phone addiction” happens. Cell phones are multi-functional products with which people can do a lot of things such as making phone calls, listening to music, playing games, using a dictionary, and keeping notes. Cell phones are so “useful” that when people come across problems, they just simply use their cell phones and work them out. In spite of that, cell phones have strong memory and they record almost everything that used to be memorized in our brain. Here’s an example, then years age, I remember almost all of my friends’ telephone numbers, but now, I don’t even remember mine. I can check the phone book at any time and when I make phone calls, I only click on the person’s name. I would like to say that people trust cell phones more than their brain.
Third, radiation is also a serious problem. We bring cell phones everywhere and we are also exposed to radiation from time to time. Besides, using a cell phone, we can’t focus on our businesses; a phone call may interrupt the whole class while we are studying.
In general, cell phone is not a bad thing but as what is said, everything should be used in a moderate way. When we enjoy the advantages of the modern technology, we should also consider the disadvantages it might bring. — Qicheng Pu
