Having got a new handphone as a symbol of appreciation, I wonder if handphones are really worth it. Talking about the disadvantages, the list is long. Having handphones is unnecessarily waste of money as we would be spending on prepaid( and also postpaid). Besides ear will get aching gradually and eye sights will be worsen by reading small fonts. We also tend to lose concentration to real people and outside world besides loosing intimacy between two people (even between couples) because two persons do not need to try to be together since they each have handphone and call to look for others anytime if lost in plaza or public. Last but not least, we cannot control temptation and always want to buy new models endlessly. But to think about it, handphones keep us connected and I spend time messaging my friends and keeping in touch with my loved ones.
