Positive effect: Information can be communicated quickly by using mobile phone. It saves lots of time, which can make people to do other things. Because its mini size, people can carry it easily and gives us a lot of conveniences. Negative effect: The information transport by electric wave. So it produced radiation around the mobile phone. The tissues of human's brain can be damage by the radiation. The health of users can be influenced seriously and we cannot under-estimation this influence.
