A painful experience
Mobile phones may offer security and may even save your life. A personal experience I had was when I was travelling from Coventry to Heathrow airport with my husband to catch a flight. On the way the car suddenly broke down on the motorway. We spent a lot of time waiting on hard shoulder for help. My husband then decided to walk till he reached a house on the next exit of the motorway. He knocked on the door and asked the owner to call a taxi then the taxi came and took us to airport and we made the necessary call to have our car towed home. Finally we arrived on time to catch the flight. A lot of this would not have happened if we had a mobile phone. That should be a good reason to have a mobile phone. In this day and age, users of mobile phones are on the increase leading to increase in their production. This in turn will lead to their prices going down with increased and fierce competition between the various players.
Are mobile phones safe?
There are some concerns as regards the use of mobile phones. Recently some scientists have expressed alarm at possible dangers in the use of mobile phones. Research suggests that the use of these small hand-held items may be a health hazard and may cause harm and perhaps cancer. For anyone who uses a mobile phone these are worrying times. Scientists have found what proves possible links between cell phone radiation and cancer: brain cancer .The scientists should provide useful and concrete information on the possible health hazards of mobile phones to consumers such as cancer of other problems including headaches, dizzles or memory loss. There is good reason to be concerned about the widespread use of hand-held mobile phones where consumers routinely place radio frequency transmitters against their head.
A new wave of research in the USA explored possible links between cell phone radiation and brain cancer. All these research and evidences should be shown to consumers around the world to let them know about mobile phones and consequences.
A temptation for thieves?
Mobile phones are easy to loose, drop and forget anywhere even can be stolen because the study also estimate that the overall number of stolen mobiles is more than 330,000 officially recorded by the police. Incidents of consumers who have been attacked in order to take their mobile phone is on the increase. Many of these attacks were fatal and in most cases it leaves the person traumatised and in shock. It is rather ironic that for the many people who acquire a mobile phone thinking that it will give them security and safety will suddenly find it has the opposite effect of actually put their lives in danger.
A bright future for mobile phones?
May be future developments in the technology of mobile phones will be able tom overcome all these problems and makes the possession of a mobile phone a real blessing to the point where they become part of our normal life without having to worry about their side effects. This process is already underway, and many users are already addicted to their use. Businessmen and businesswomen who are constantly on the move have already seen the benefits of being constantly in touch with customers, clients, and business partners.
Here's what a star student thought of this essay
Quality of writing
The section 'A Bright Future For Mobile Phones', has a spelling mistake. As the report states 'mobile phones will be able to tom'. I'm assuming that the word should be 'to', and this should be corrected within the report. The writing style is quite formal, and the student does make sense on the majority of their sentences, which gives a clear understanding.
Level of analysis
The report states that mobile phone's are developing at the fastest levels, although why is this the case? The report could include 'Mobile phones are developing and changing month by month, which is fast developing. This is due to that their are a number of mobile phone brands, operators and software/hardware developers. All the above, creates competition, and this competitiveness drives innovation. Thus, this improves the technology at a fast pace'.
Response to question
In summary, the report is quite good. The report states a number of benefits and drawbacks of mobile phones, with using an example of a situation. However the report could have been more detailed, especially in sections such as 'Are Mobile Phones Safe' and 'A Bright Future For Mobile Phones'. The section 'A Painful Experience', is quite good as this describes how a situation could have been prevented with the use of a mobile phone. Although the report could mention the drawbacks of mobile phones in this situation. For example the report could include 'Using a mobile phone in this situation, may be useless if the battery has run out. This is a potential event, as a mobile phone battery doesn't last for a long while. However I still believe that using a mobile Phone could be beneficial, especially if more than one person owns a mobile phone, as it would be unlikely that two mobile phones were out of battery'. The report states that there is a danger linking usage of mobile phones to brain cancer. It's important to note, that this is not an in-depth research and there have been links between the two. However the evidence is not clear, at this stage due to mobile phones are new technology, and these haven't been fully tested as of yet.
