The following is a contribution from another author.

There are still – surprisingly – many people who haven’t yet upgraded their cell phone to a smartphone. The reasons for this vary from wanting some simplicity in an already complicated life, to only really needing a phone that texts and calls. Why pay for a smartphone when you don’t need the apps and the bells and whistles that come with one? It makes sense, but perhaps you haven’t actually thought about what a smartphone could mean for you.

If you’re currently sitting on the fence and wondering how a smartphone can enhance your life, it’s time to stop wondering. You don’t have to think about what getting a new upgrade could mean for you when we have eight reasons written for you below:

Information. No matter where you are, you can look up literally anything in the world. Whether you need to know menu information for a restaurant you’ve spotted and like the look of, or you want to know more about the history of your location, it’s right there at your fingertips.

Camera. The capabilities on the camera of a smartphone can rival the professional ones that are currently on the market. You can pack much lighter for a vacation when your smartphone is also your camera in your pocket!

Gaming. Being able to log into the new FFXV A New Empire app wherever you are means that you can keep up with your favorite games no matter where you are.

Navigation. A smartphone is going to give you the ability to navigate your way around anywhere. Smartphones have free, voice-guided navigation now, which means you can get where you need to go hands-free.

Utilities. The best thing about a smartphone is how you can use it. If you’re hiking, it has a compass. If you’re stuck rocking a baby and they’ve dropped a pacifier, it has a flashlight to help you see. The utilities on the phone can really help you in your daily life.

Social Media. Access to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other social media platforms is something that features in most of our lives right now. Nowadays, there are even social media tools, such as a hashtag generator, that can help you with the marketing of your products and services. With a smartphone, your social media really is at your fingertips.

Email. When you work from home or on the road on the way to appointments, you need to be able to access your email. Smartphones have the capacity to hold your personal and your business email accounts, which means that you can be easily reached.
