Mobile phones – expensive toys or an everyday necessity? What is your opinion? Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

There is no doubt that the mobile phone is one of the most useful devices people have ever created. That is why cell phones can be seen in the hands of almost every member of modern society. Indeed, mobile phones are considered to be the ‘helpers’ for dealing with everyday life and not just a toy that costs a lot of money.
Firstly, cell phones facilitate the communication between people. In this way, every one that has an access to a mobile phone is free to connect with other people – be it friends, family or a person that they are familiar with. What is more, sharing ideas and experience gets easier and people are more likely to help each other with different sort of activities such as finding job, choosing a good school for their children or exchanging information for a pleasant place for rest and fun.
Secondly, mobile phones find a place in different social services. Online banking, distant education and online paying bills through mobile phone applications are a part of what people can do with their phones. In this way, these devices assist the government and its institutions as well as private organizations and banks in fulfilling their duties.
Finally, a mobile phone can really save one’s life. These devices are used in rescue operations usually to define people’s exact location when they are lost in the mountain, for instance. What is more, the same technique can be used in order to avoid the terrible consequences of crimes like a kidnap and catching their doers by tracking them via their mobile phones.
In conclusion, mobile phones are not only an everyday necessity but also an investment. They facilitate people’s daily life, connect them and make modern world a safer place for living. For that reason these devices are helpers and not toys.
