Mobile phones have had a surprising effect on the way that people cope emotionally, psychologically, and physically when they have to move far away from home for work, school, or because of other circumstances. They allow people to stay in constant contact with each other even when they are thousands of miles away. The Internet allows people to quickly order Samsung replacement parts or other replacement parts for their smartphone from companies like Samsungparts.com for example. They can have their phone repaired quickly and be able to start using it again.
There is a direct connection between the number of mobile phone subscriptions in a country and the amount of democratic participation. Mobile phones make it easier for people to communicate with each other, thereby spreading ideas and sharing news. Since most smartphones have the capability of taking video and instantly sending video to others, news reports that take place in one part of the world are instantaneously transported to another part of the world, making the world a more transparent place.
Developing countries have seen drastic economic growth as a result of mobile phone technologies. Countries in West Africa are relying on mobile phones to help people who do not deposit money in an actual bank create a virtual mobile banking system that allows them to instantly purchase items and to transfer funds between one person and another. Mobile phone technology will account for approximately 1.8 percent of the growth in the GDP by 2020 and 24.9 percent of GDP growth in Egypt.
Another way that mobile phones are affecting the economy is that they allow people to create services and applications that allow them to generate income. Farmers in developing countries use mobile phones to immediately respond to a crisis that threatens to destroy their crops or to damage their machinery.
New technology is constantly being applied to mobile phone service that is increasing the impact that it has on people’s lives. It is exciting to contemplate the future benefits that mobile technology will bring.
