In today’s society, smartphones have had a large impact on many aspects technology. While cell phones made communication much easier, smart phones took it to another level and allowed for easy, quick access to information and the internet world.  By allowing for access to the internet with a simple touch of a finger, smartphones open up new ways of communication through social media sites, and email. People who were once separated by long distance, whether friends, family, or business affiliates, now have access to video chats, giving a much more personal means of connecting rather than simply texting or calling.

Not only have they affected society’s social life, but they have also had an impact on the workplace as well.  Many people use their smartphones as a means of communication, research, and storing crucial information or reminders.  Not only do they work that way, but they also have the advantage that they work as regular phones as well.
