That is a wonderful topic Timmappa. You just spoke my mind. Really speaking I am not at all happy with the smartphones. I wouldn't have missed them at all. Life would have been so much "Fun" without these "attention seeking" gadget. People would have behaved their usual ways, and the phones would have served us instead of us caring for them throughout the day.
I would have just stuck to my old cellphone, which I miss so much. Everything was there in the earlier phone, internet, camera, document editing and social media too. Its only because of the recent apps which do not have a version ready for the earlier phones, that I had to switch to smartphones.
The earlier phones were sturdy, good looking, easy to handle, no unintended activity because of "touch by mistake" used to take place.
Those phones could be picked up and used even without looking at them. While travelling, in the bus, or in a crowded place, it was easy to take them out, take the call and keep them back.
Maintaining the phones were easy too. I have dropped my earlier phone thousand times and nothing happened. Usually the batteries were also replaceable, so worries were less, utility were more, they were a value for money handsets. And I was as comfortable with them as with my pet.
So I would have continued with my earlier phone, a dedicated camera and my laptop, which anyway I am continuing even with the presence of my smartphone.
