IELTS essay - Mobile phones have made life easier: anyone can use a mobile phone to answer/make work calls or home calls at any place 7 days a week. Do you think this development has more positive effects or negative effects on the individual and society?

Mobile phones have revolutionised the concept of communication. They have a big role in transforming the society into a 24/7 society. This development has its pros and cons but the advantages definitely outweigh the disadvantages.

On the positive side, mobile phones have simplified our lives. Today, we are well connected with our family and friends all the time. Earlier, if a person was late from work, his family would be worries about him till he returned home safe and sound. Today, one can inform his kith and kin of one’s whereabouts. Today, if something goes wrong with your vehicle and you are stranded on the road then you can immediately call someone for help.

Nowadays, the shopkeeper does not miss an important customer just because he had to go home for five minutes for some urgent work. Even in offices which require fieldwork, a person can take advice from his seniors any time and fro anywhere. Some businesses, in fact, thrive on the mobile phone.

On the downside, cell phones can take away your calm and quiet. A person with a mobile phone cannot draw the line between work and leisure. If you don’t answer the mobile phone or keep it switched off in your off-duty hours, then you are considered rude and if you answer, then your family life is in jeopardy. What is more, if you listen to a mobile phone while driving then you can cause accidents. Finally, the ads which come on cell phones can be very bugging especially when you are in the middle of an important meeting.

To put it in a nutshell, I pen down saying that, mobile phones actually make our life simpler and more convenient. It is in our hands to know where to draw the line and use them to our benefit only.
