There was a time when access to the internet was restricted to the minority. Even though the internet was released to the public, the heavy costs associated with accessing it kept the masses away from it and the only way to access it at the time was with the use of personal computers that cost quite themselves too. With the development of technology though, the price in personal computers declined making it much easier for the general public to buy one and soon personal computers became a commodity available in everyone’s houses. Access to the internet was still hampered by the high prices that internet providers charged and the low quality of the connection was another problem.

As time went on, better connection options like broadband were introduced so consumers could have a more reliable internet service but it was not until the first smartphone was introduced in 2007 that the ease of access got much better. With a smartphone it was possible to have an experience similar to a personal computer but what made it easier was the fast connectivity offered by network providers and the portability of the device ensured that you can carry it around anywhere. Gone were the days when you had to carry around laptops or switch on your personal computer to do a simple search; with a couple of touches on your smartphone you could achieve the same result with half the hassle associated with the task. Many mobile manufacturers like Samsung mobile phone shop in Singapore developed excellent cameras to integrate into their devices making it easier for users to share pictures and such to social media.

The advanced features available on Samsung mobiles combined with the fact that a affordable smartphone is only arms length away usually made access to the internet easier and changed all aspects of our life.

Nowadays businesses can integrate their pos systems and such into the employees’ devices making it easier to check up and manage and finish their work no matter where they are. With the powerful specifications integrated into the devices it makes it easy for us to also play any type of high quality games we prefer instead of having to access our computers and laptops. Apps associated with traveling like navigation apps and hotel booking apps make it easier to plan your trips out and ensure everything goes along without a hitch. Smartphones are even able to pair up with smart watches and provide users with data like their running speeds and how many calories they are burning among other fitness related apps. With VR taking center stage in the last few months, we can expect smartphones to play a major role in making VR a success.
