Smartphones have revolutionized the way we communicate with the rest of the world. In the beginning, we only used them to talk to other people. Soon after, we started texting.
Cameras were making their way onto phones. Today, smartphones can do everything. They are no less than desktops when comes to computing.
The picture quality of smartphone cameras is increasing day by day. Thanks to smartphones, the world is now in our hands.
However, in many ways, smartphones have ruined our lives. You already know how and why! Check these fifteen comics that show the downsides of the smartphone revolution.
1. When You Can’t Find Your Phone
Use it or not, it got to be there with us 24/7. Isn’t that true? A smartphone isn’t just an electronic gadget. There is something more special about the tiny piece of communication.
2. We Just Can’t Stop Ourselves From Looking Into It
How frequently would you press the home button on your phone just to check those notifications? Apparently, phones can actually talk back now with virtual assistant apps like Siri and people enjoy having weird conversations with Siri.
3. True That!
There is a little change, though. In 2017, people would take a selfie – not just a regular photo. Is someone drowning? Okay, let me take a selfie first and share it on Facebook!
4. Clever Idea
We were talking about this before. We simply can’t stop ourselves from checking our phones. In the process, we end up paying little or no attention to the people around us.
5. Smartphones Ruin Relationships Too
People keep checking their phones even on their date. Remember, when you are in a conversation with someone, you should only attend phone calls or emergency texts. Frequently checking the phone would make others think that you are not interested in them.
6. The Modern-Day Family
We can’t find any better picture than this, to sum up, our modern-day life. Parents and grandparents aren’t happy with us for this very reason.
7. Phones, They Are Everywhere!
We are constantly on our phone so much that our tan lines have gotten a little weird and inappropriate.
8. Do You Have A Similar Girlfriend Or Boyfriend?
Smartphones are a significant cause of trust issues among couples. People are always worried about who their partner is chatting with. The internet and social media together with smartphones have ruined many relationships and marriages.
9. It’s Interesting How Smartphones Transformed Photography
In the olden days, taking pictures with a camera required some skills. Today, all one needs to do is just press a button on their phone.
10. Our Sleep Time Takes A Beating
Almost all of us do the same thing. We browse, chat and watch videos, etc. Back in those days, you need to sit upright next to a desktop or deal with a bulky laptop. It’s all easy now.
11. When Birds Used To Tweet!!!
A morning walk down the street would let you hear some birds tweet. A late-night peek into a smartphone would show you people tweeting!
12. The Future Is Here
We already see a bunch of them. We may be doing that as well. Oh boy, haven’t the smartphones ruined us? They did!
13. Selfies, Likes, Shares
People these days value ‘likes’ on their pictures more than the actual and real-time compliments they get from their friends and family members. Thanks to smartphones and their selfie cameras!
14. Smartphone Prices Are Getting Out Of Control
Imagine how much people are spending on their phones so that a smartphone maker managed to become one of the world’s biggest companies with operating revenues of over $200 billion!
15. Smartphones Create Communication Problems
Most of the modern-day kids and teens are excellent at online conversation (chatting). They struggle when they have to speak in real.
How many of these applies to you?
