Mobile phones continued to evolve from a mere call and text device into something more. Mobile phones today are not just phones; they are coined smartphones because of their advanced capabilities and functions, never before seen on their traditional counterparts. Smartphones started to appear during the same time electronics and processors started to become cheaper due to innovations and technological researches. Faster and more efficient processors were developed, not to mention cost cheaper than their predecessors. With this technological advancement, the development of mobile phones into smartphones became inevitable.

Smartphones are packed with faster processors, larger RAM and storage space, and greater graphics capabilities as compared to their older cellular phone counterparts. With this, more functionalities and features were introduced, thus allowing people to do things impossible to do on mobile phones years ago.

Now you can surf the Internet everywhere you are, even if there is no available Wi-Fi hotspots nearby.
