Semakin zaman berlalu, telefon bimbit melalui pelbagai reka bentuk.

Pada awalnya, telefon bimbit agak berat dan besar tetapi kini, telefon bimbit semakin kecil dan mudah untuk dibawa ke mana-mana sahaja. Bukan sahaja orang yang bekerja, malah remaja juga kini ramai yang memiliki telefon bimbit. Di sini, saya akan membincangkan tentang kebaikan dan keburukan memiliki telefon bimbit. Saya akan membincangkan tiga kebaikan telefon bimbit. Antaranya : Pertama sekali, penggunaan telefon bimbit memudahkan remaja untuk menghubungi keluarga di mana-mana sahaja mereka berada. Contohnya, pada waktu kecemasan, kita dengan mudah boleh meminta bantuan ahli keluarga. Kita juga boleh memberitahu ibu atau bapa jikalau perlu pulang lewat agar mereka tidak rasa bimbang akan keselamatan anak-anaknya. Kebaikan yang kedua adalah tentang memuat turunkan maklumat dengan menggunakan teknologi 'bluetooth'. Kita boleh melungsuri internet di telefon bimbit tersebut dan menyimpan data-data dengan mudah untuk menyelesaikan sesuatu projek. Merapatkan silaturahim dengan rakan yang berada jauh di rantauan adalah kebaikan yang ketiga. Telefon bimbit 3G membolehkan kita membuat panggilan video dengan rakan di luar negeri. Teknologi sebegini membenarkan kita berbual sambil melihat wajah pemanggil, dan ini boleh mengubati perasaan yang rindu terhadap diri kita. Di sebalik kebaikan yang telah disebutkan tadi, ada juga beberapa keburukan yang perlu diingatkan. Yang pertama, jika kita tidak tahu mengawal kos, penggunaan telefon bimbit boleh mencapai beribuan dolar atau ringgit. Contohnya, kos membuat panggilan video agak mahal jika kita terlalu asyik berbual sehingga tidak sedari masa yang terlalu lama bergantung di telefon. Remaja-remaja sekarang juga saling bersaing untuk memiliki model telefon yang terkini. Setiap kali, ibu bapalah yang mengeluarkan duit untuk mencapai keinginan remaja yang mahukan telefon bimbit. Bagi orang yang berkemampuan sederhana, ini menjadi suatu bebanan untuk memaksa diri memiliki benda yang tidak mereka mampu. Yang penting sekali ialah ini memupuk persaingan yang kurang sihat. Kita patut bersyukur terhadap apa yang kita ada. Penggunaan telefon bimbit berpanjangan mungkin dapat dikaitkan dengan sejenis kanser, satu kajian penting akan mendedahkan bukti bahawa mereka yang sering berbual panjang menggunakan telefon bimbit mempunyai risiko tambahan mendapat ketumbuhan otak yang berpotensi membawa maut.

Re: Advantages and disadvantages of using mobile phones. (please correct it)
can i use this sentence in conclusion? In conclusion, mobiles are a great invention since there were 950 million mobile phones sold last year alone. However, you have to protect yourself from the bad effects if you choose to have one.

No, you can't use this in conclusion. It's awful. > It just limps along to a weak and dull ending. It doesn't "wrap up" the stuff that was already said; it just repeats it -- only this time in a boring and lifeless manner. > The logic is faulty. Mobiles are a great invention SINCE there were so many sold? How do large sales cause something to be a great invention? Large sales might PROVE that it's a great invention -- or at least a popular one -- but that's not what the sentence has said. > Readers don't need a "conclusion" after reading 190 easy words covering two easy concepts -- not unless they are attending Special School. > and that goes DOUBLE for such a dull, pluggy, lifeless, boring, limp and weak "conclusion" (repetition is more like it) as this one.

You have to protect yourself from the bad effects of mobiles if you choose to have one.

Re: Advantages and disadvantages of using mobile phones. (please correct it)
Most of the problems with this essay are not related to the grammatical use of English. That is fine. It's not uncommon for people to revert to babytalk and infantile ideas when they are aware that their vocabulary is limited. Resist that tendency. This essay was not worth reading, and only partly because the assigned topic makes it hard to come up with anything worthwhile to say. It makes it hard -- but not impossible. You should have done more work to express these banal ideas in a more appealing way -varied sentence structure, maybe, and a spicier vocabulary.

Almost everybody has a mobile phone. But is it a great invention? I think there are both advantages and disadvantages. > This is a poor intro. It has no life, no "snap." It doesn't draw the reader in. It is plodding, obvious, and dull. > For a tiny piece like this one, the opening sentence should be what is called a "hook." A hook grabs the reader's attention and makes him want to read the following passage. > Until you do the mental work to come up with an intro that is a "hook," don't bother to write one at all. A bad intro is worse than none. > Delete these sentences Today, mobile phones have become popular to everybody since they are convenient. > It's not easy to come up with something interesting to say when the material is self-evident. > But don't make it worse by using the most stodgy and boring sentence structure available. Because of the great convenience of mobile phones, they are now a

modern-day must-have -- the 21st century equivalent of a businessman's fountain pen. The most advantage of having a mobile phone is you can communicate to your family, your friends, and your business no matter what where you are. > If you must say the self-evident, at least try to make the expression fresh or lively. Jetting to Europe or stalled in traffic, with your mobile phone you're always in touch with your family, your friends, and your business. We also use special applications for listening music, playing games, surfing the net, and texting messages. > The problem with writing down something that everyone already knows is that it makes it sound like you are writing a story for people who are six years old. > It is crucial that you remove that problem by saying these infantile things in a spicy or interesting way. Special apps for texting, listening to music, playing games, and surfing the web keep our phones plugged into our heads around the clock. Besides that, > "Besides that" means "in addition to that" > You use "besides that" when you are going to add more of the same > But in this case, you are not adding more of the same > You are turning the direction of your remarks around > For that use, the correct conjunction is "but" But there are lots of disadvantages. > This ends rather abruptly > for a better transition, add something more be careful. There are also some disadvantages to using our beloved cellies. Using mobile phones can harm our brains, especially for those who are under the age of sixteen. > Unless "we" are all under the age of 16, it is better to refer to it as "the brain," rather than "our brains." > Since this is far from a known fact, it is better to place the data in

the opinions of SOME people Some researchers have claimed that mobile phones are harmful to the brain, especially for children. Excessive use of mobile phones has been accused of causing dizziness, and "radiations emmitted from the phone are dead harmful for the eardrum" , say many scientists. > "Many" scientists do not say this, and it is no doubt scientifically false > ONE scientist said this > He even used a slang expression in his quote: "dead harmful" is not standard English; it is a personal idiosyncrasy of speech. > The remark is in quotation marks, which means that it is a direct quote directly from the mouth of a specific person > "Many scientists" did not stand up all at once and chant this line, so you can't attribute a specific utterance to a group. > If you don't know his name, you can write "according to a publicityseeking quack quoted in a tabloid journal of bad repute" or something like that > "emitted" is spelled wrong Excessive use of mobile phones has been accused of causing dizziness, and "radiations emitted from the phone are dead harmful for the eardrum," according to one researcher in the field. In addition, when we use mobile phones while we are driving, we will get in an accident. > This is logically false, and the ridiculous and simplistic nature of statements like this contribute to making this piece infantile > Using cell phones probably increases the risk of accidents > It is now considered un-PC to call them "accidents" on the grounds that they are caused by avoidable driver misconduct > traffic accidents are now called "car crashes" In addition, using a mobile phone while driving hikes the risk of getting into a car crash. In summary, mobiles are a great invention but they still have many issues. You have to protect yourself from the bad effects of mobiles if you choose to have one. > Just delete this on the grounds that it is not adding a single thing that would repay the reader the trouble of seeing it. > It is not interesting, amusing, entertaining, informative, new, or any

of the millions of other reasons why we might read something. > Do some mental work to think of "What would be good to say in conclusion? What can I say to wrap this up that would be good to read?" > A teeny piece like this, with almost no ideas in it, does not need a "summary." > You might give it a "conclusion" just so it doesn't end so abruptly > But a conclusion is not just a dull repeat of the self-evident and dull stuff that we JUST HEARD 15 SECONDS AGO!!! > Not unless you are writing for people who are 6. > You can't say "they have issues." It's ridiculous. > Think of some interesting way to CLOSE the passage, not "summarize" it.

It is maybe the main reason why almost all people today choose to own a mobile phone. Mobiles are a great invention but they still have many issues.

Advantages & Disadvantages of Cell Phones and Smartphones


BY JACK POWELL, DEMAND MEDIA

The invention of cellular phones ushered in a new era of connectivity for its users. Falling phone and plan prices have made cell phones available to the masses and the development of so-called smartphones has given users even more power in the palms of their hands. While it is fairly easy to see the advantages of cell phones and smartphones, these devices are not without their disadvantages too.

Availability
Because of their portability, cell phones allow people to keep in touch constantly. This is a big departure from the days when work and home telephones were the only means of communication. Nowadays, you can reach anyone at any time of the day or night. This can be both an advantage and a disadvantage depending on how you look at it. It is advantageous

because it allows you to make and receive important phone calls, such as emergency calls, anywhere. The downside is that it makes you available to everyone with your cell phone number, all the time. While you cannot stop someone from calling you, you can ignore the call if you do not wish to speak to someone.

Cost
Cell phones and smartphones themselves cost money, as does the monthly service. While this pricing model is no different from landlines, the phones and services are typically more expensive for cellular phones than they are for landlines. Many mobile service providers also limit minutes, which landline companies do not at least not on local calls. One of the biggest cost advantages of cell phones is that long distance is included at no additional charge. Most landline companies still charge per minute for long distance. If many of your calls are considered long distance, making them on a cell phone could actually save you money. Smartphones cost more than cell phones and their monthly service rates are typically higher as well. This is something to keep in mind when deciding between the two.

Productivity
Depending on how they're used, cell phones and smartphones have the capacity to increase and decrease productivity. When they are used for business purposes, they can add to an employees productivity because the employee can work while traveling or from home if needed. Mobile phones decrease productivity for employees who are constantly checking personal cell phones and making calls or sending texts when they're supposed to be working.

Health
New reports hit the news almost weekly about how cell phones emit radiation and may be linked to brain tumors. Most cell phone makers claim the radiation levels fall within acceptable limits and there is no harm in using a cell phone regularly. It is likely that more research on long-term use of cell phones will reveal the truth, but until that point, there is the possibility that spending hours a day on your cell phone could be harmful to your health. In addition to potential brain tumors, studies have shown

that drivers who text or talk while driving are distracted and cause more accidents than those drivers who concentrate on the road.

ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF USING A CELL PHONE

Until the 1800s people used letters for communication. But this way was very slow, and people couldnt contact each other in emergency situations. There was also the possibility of letters being lost. But after the invention of the telephone in 1876 by Alexander Graham Bell, it became easier for people to communicate. Then in the 1970s, the cellular phone was invented. It brought many advantages into our lives. However, although cell phones brought many benefits into our lives, they also have disadvantages.

The most important advantage of cell phones is that they can be used almost everywhere without cables or electricity. By using a mobile phone, you can communicate with anyone whenever you want and wherever you are. Besides this, if there is an emergency situation, mobile phones can be useful. Furthermore, you can get access to the Internet by using a cell phone. These days, the worlds most common means of communication is SMS. Cell phones include this system, so in this way you can communicate with someone more cheaply than by normal calling.

In contrast, cell phones have some disadvantages. For example, cell phones spread electromagnetic waves. And these electromagnetic waves cause important health problems like cancer. Additionally, cell phones often affect the electronic systems used by equipment like cars, ABS (automatic brake system), and computers. This can cause big problems, such as accidents.

To sum up, cell phones not only have advantages, but also they have disadvantages. Mobile phones make our lives easier. But at the same time, they cause some important problems in our health.

Answer:
Advantages:

You can carry a mobile phone with you so you don't miss important calls If you are lost, you can call for directions. If you are in an accident, you can call the police or ambulance - and if the phone has a camera, you can take pictures of the accident. You can listen to music, text, play games when you're bored. Most mobile phones have a calculator and a phone book. You can use a mobile phone to call your customers or boss if you are running late to a meeting. You can surf Internet & Connect with the whole world by Mobile. You can chat & video conference. Keep in touch with friends and family Good for emergencies Employees can keep in touch at all times. Customers can contact staff 24/7 Phones have internet connection More work available They have cameras You can check your emails Can be used worldwide It can fit in your pocket.

Disadvantages:

Mobile phones can be expensive

They can damage your ear Sometimes the reception is poor in some areas, limiting your connectivity (you can't talk underground or on planes). People use the phone while they are driving, and this can cause problems. They can limit your face to face time with friends and family They can get you in trouble at school Can be expensive Can be hard to find the right package Can ruin the connection to the computer. Staff can abuse their phones if they have internet connection Can be hard for older people to use. Because of their smaller size, they can be easy to lose. Rate This Answer Improve this Answer...
