Do you often switch off your phone? (follow up question part 2)
No, I only turn it off at night as I’ve read somewhere that phone connection can disturb our sleep. When I need to concentrate on a critical task or when I’m on an airplane, I’ll put it in silent mode or disconnected mode.
Are there any places in your country where mobile/ cell phones are banned?
Of course there are various situations in which people are not advised to use their phones. For example, using mobile phones while driving is against the law and violators will face heavy fines. Additionally, mobile phone use is not allowed in some museums, petrol stations or other restricted areas where phone connection might interfere with or cause other devices to malfunction, posing a threat to people’s safety.
Advantages and disadvantages of mobile phones?
I think mobile phones, especially smartphones, are among the coolest gadgets that have been invented so far. They have transformed the way people communicate, entertain, study and work. With a ton of functions and compatible apps, these handy little devices have made life much easier and more comfortable. People can now play games, watch TV, enjoy music or go shopping just with a mobile phone right at the comfort of their home. Unfortunately, mobile phones can have detrimental effects on users’ health if misused or overused. Too much screen time is unhealthy for their eyes and may disturb their sleep. Also, mobile phones can make it hard for people to concentrate on work or study, leading to low productivity and poor performance.
Do young people and old people use mobile phones the same way?
Definitely not. Old people tend to use their phones for basic functions such as calling or texting, I mean mainly for communication purposes. Young people, on the other hand, use the device for a much wider range of activities: to stay in touch with others, to take photos, to relax and entertain, to take notes, to make plans, to learn languages or even to work. As a result, they spend much more time on gadgets than old people.
Should children be allowed to use mobile phones? At what age?
I’d say yes. The most obvious reason is that most parents are now getting busier with work while children tend to spend more time having fun outside of their home. Mobile phones help adults keep track of their kids to ensure their safety. Besides, children need to get in touch with their friends and teachers too. I believe teenagers should be allowed to use mobile phones under supervision, possibly from the age of 12.
Why are young people addicted to their mobile phone?
Well, this is mainly because the device is super cool and children love having fun. With a smartphone, they can do almost anything, all at their fingertips, from surfing the Internet, playing games, chatting with friends, listening to music, taking photos, watching films to learning languages. Another reason is that these days most parents seem too busy to spend time with their kids and even leave them playing on smartphones unsupervised. It’s easy to see why youngsters tend to spend too much screen time.
