SMARTPHONE

SHORT LIST

Statement

Dull visibility

Smartphones provide many conveniences, therefore they have become an essential item for people of this modern age.
People use Smartphones while eating with friends, couples talk with each other holding their coffee in one hand,
while enthusiastically watching their Smartphones’ screens in the other hand.
Informations and services that Smartphones provide, depriving our minds and time from us before we realize it.
As Smartphones have evolved, they have allowed individuals to link to the world.
With the rise in popularity of SNS services, people are now defining their worth through Smartphones.
This is one of the negative impacts of the conveniences.
Where is this leading us?
