While it is believed by some people that our modern life has been made better by mobile phones, others may claim that there are some problems which people have to face from this trend. Personally, I agree with group one for communication and convenience.

 

The most benefit gained from digital phones is that today people can easily communicate with others. In the past, when people live far from their family, they just have to send their letters, and it took their family a few days to receive them. But now, by using a car phone, people can send a message in a few seconds and it is even free. Moreover, if people want to see each other, it allows them to chat video. In business, this is a quick and useful way to contact customers and respond to the needs of them.

 

Another advantage of using cell phones is that they are small and convenient for users. They fit easily people’s pocket or bag, and do not weigh much. People can take it to everywhere, relax by playing games on cell phones and receive phone calls from customers at the same time. In the event of an accident, injury, criminal incident, or other emergencies, mobile phones ensure that emergency services, as well as family and friends, can be contacted immediately.

 

Regardless of these advantages, it also has some drawbacks that should be considered. Some studies suggest that the radiation produced by mobile phones causes harm to human health. Brain cancer can be led by using digital phones. Besides, it also harms people’s eyes and has bad effects on physical health.

 

In conclusion, in spite of the disadvantages of cell phones, the advantages outweigh them. From my perspective, cell phones contribute to our life and make it easier and faster.

Cell phones have become very common among everyone, thanks to the technological advancements, the handheld device is available starting from few pennies to even millions of dollars. These tools, depending on features that they come along with, can perform multiple operations. While the technology geeks encourage the uptrend, luddites talk about negative impacts that such devices can bring into the society. Both these arguments will be carefully analysed before arriving at a reasoned conclusion.

 

These portable devices have become an indispensable part of our mind which requires entertainment-on-demand. For instance, such devices accessing high-speed network can stream a high definition video live. These devices are also being constructively used to control the smart appliances at home remotely from anywhere in the world. In addition to this, the cell phone is used for improving one’s fitness through some useful application that can help through different fitness routines replacing the need for a trainer. In short, the mobile phones are replacing many other types of equipment and emerging as a one-stop solution for many requirements.

 

On the other hand, due to smartphones, people are glued to their smartphone screens even during meetings in office and also while at home. To illustrate, phubbing has become one of the leading bad behaviours in recent years. Specifically, the situation in some of the house is so worse that they chat with their sibling in next room instead of talking to them. To conclude, the socialisation among the social animal is taking place in an unconventional way. This can lead to loss of linguistic speaking skills in a long term.

 

Considering the points of view of both camps, the cell phones have many advantages than disadvantages but it is advocated to use the technology judiciously and ensure overall development of human society

Vietnam has a lot of natural beauty. Halong Bay is located in Northeast Vietnam, which is part of the Northwest Bo Bo Bo. My feeling about Halong Bay was the first to see the miraculous beauty that nature gave Vietnam similar to what I learned through books and television: Ha Long Bay was really very beautiful and sexy. Ha Long Bay as a giant picture wearing extremely vivid. It is a beautiful artwork, creative flowers, nature turns thousands of islands, nonsense silence has become quite sculptured, painting with all our perfect appearance, charm, is only very familiar as aliens for humans. Thousands of islands burn on shimmering waves, strongly, but also very soft and graceful, vivid. Halong Bay is very beautiful, but will be more beautiful, romantic if there are colors by the feelings of respect and love for visitors to the bay. You and me, we have the owner like a tourist, we keep the precious gift that nature has given the support of Vietnam. Ha Long Bay is a wonder in the world. Ha Long Bay-My Love.

Terraced rice fields are located in the northern mountainous provinces. Local ethnic minority peoples can grow rice and establish terraced rice fields, one after another, from the foot to nearly top of mountains. In distance, the terraced rice fields look like a picture of nature with heart-catching beauty keeping tourists to stay for admiration for a while. This picture however has its colour changed seasonally. As usual in April and May, the local people water their fields at full to prepare for a new crop. At this time, the surface of terraced fields shines like a mirror. In June and July, the terraced rice fields with fully-grown paddy rice and forest trees spread the green out to the entire area. In September and October when autumn ends, the terraced rice fields look like golden silk scarves flying over in the wind above green mountain slopes. Famous terraced rice fields can be found in Yen Bai, Ha Giang. Especially, the fields in Sa Pa (Lao Cai Province) were voted as one of seven most beautiful and impressive terraced rice fields of Asia.
