The development of mobile phones is changing the way humans live. This has both advantages and disadvantages. I personally believe that the benefits of this evolution outweigh its drawbacks.

By eliminating the major constraint the world has faced for a long time: geographical distance, mobile phones offer significant benefits. The first advantage of mobile phones is that they allow great flexibility, which enables instant exchange of information for both work and personal matters. Globalization era requires a great deal of international collaboration between staff in different offices and also, between the companies and their partners. Thus, access to mobile phone communication regardless of time and location ensures work efficiency for individuals, the companies, and eventually the society’s economy as a whole. The latest statistics from the U.S Census points out that more than 75% of 30,000 surveyed employees say they work more effectively thanks to mobile phones. The second advantage is the savings on the travel expenses needed for face-to-face meetings, which, in a Cambridge University’s study, is reported to cut down 20% of the total expenses of a person every year.

There is, however, one minor drawback. It is apparent that easy interaction on mobile phones reduces time for social interaction. In other words, people whose mobile phone’s usage is heavy face shortage of real human face-to-face contact, which causes their emotion negative impacts. For example, a study on the relation between negative emotions and mobile phone usage published in the National Institute of Health’s Journals indicates that the more a person uses mobile phones, the less face-to-face interaction he/she has with others, and the more likely that person suffers from emotional distress, affecting not only the individual but the overall society’s well-being.

In short, it is undeniable that mobile phone progresses, especially when people are constantly on their phones, have both positive and negative impacts. However, the benefits unquestionably overshadow the negative side.
