We live in a world where smartphones are used for practically everything!

We use them to access social media, take pictures, browse the internet, pay for things, mobile banking, and the list goes on!

I think it’s fair to say that they’ve changed the world! I mean when I was growing up, we didn’t have smartphones, we used a separate camera to take pictures, shared a family computer and listened to music on portable CD Players and later MP3 Players and iPods.

Today, all of that can be done from a single handheld device, a smartphone.

Smartphones are continually getting better and more powerful. I mean around 10 years ago, I could never have imagined smartphones being as powerful or in some cases even more powerful than computers!

As smartphones continue to evolve, so does the race to own the latest and greatest device on the market.

But, here’s the thing…

For most people, a smartphone is just a tool they use, and the majority of people aren’t concerned about owning the latest and greatest smartphones. They just want something that works.
