The invention of mobile phone was one of the biggest inventions of the 20th century. Initially mobile phones were used to make a call and they were usually larger in size. Then mobile phones began to shrink in size and an idea to send a text message rather than make a call arrived. 

Today smartphones are commonly used by a very large number of people, as many social media and gaming applications can be installed in smartphones, almost 77% of smartphone users in our country are just 21 to 30 years old. 

But it also have some drawbacks as our youth is spending much time on using smartphone, because of the excessive use of smartphones and other electronic gadgets, our interaction with our family members, neighbors, friends and relatives is decreasing. Which makes us narcissistic; we don’t know about our environment and what’s going on around us. Mobile phones are also hazardous to human health because of the emergence of different types of rays. 

We should reduce the usage of mobile phones also we should not make it our hobby to use it other than its necessity.
