Gone are the days when you had a mobile phone that could only make calls and send SMS (short messaging service). The evolution of a mobile phone into a ‘smartphone’ has quite honestly been awe-inspiring. The past decade has seen an explosive growth in a smartphone’s aesthetics, functions and features.
Now, you can make video calls, browse the internet, purchase online, and do much more. You can even use your smartphone as your very own digital wallet. In fact, as scary as it might seem, our whole lives can be linked to this magnificent piece of device in our hands. Our credit card numbers, social security pins, ID card numbers, contacts, emails, notes, calendars, photos, videos, reminders, diaries; you name it. It’s all in there.
