Cell phones - The highest and best use

Highest and best use for that dern' phone

I often lament the use of cell phones as being the downfall of humanity. People texting not talking or staring endlessly at their "device" and not interacting with people around them. I do however have my cell phone with me most of the time. Although I love photography, I do not have my camera strapped to my side, but I do have that phone. I must credit the cell phone for all of the photos I have seen people share and am glad when I have a moment I wish to capture. I took this photo the other day and yes I was glad my device had a camera. Guess everything in moderation and often when there is a purpose.

I cannot agree with you more! I use the cell phone but in moderation - it is only a tool but not an end by itself. Nice photo too - siva

@Missmwngi You are so right. I try to use my phone when I need to make a call and when I want to snap a photo. I do not use it as an excuse to avoid good old face to face communication. Thank you as to the photo...I loved the moment I saw the sunset and was so glad to catch it.

I do take photos with my cell phone too, but also in moderation. I use it for texting, talking, using apps to make money, and also paly games on it. My iPhone is the only phone I have, and I fel lost without it, when I don't have it.

Cellphones are over used and we should try our best not to use them so much. They can be a headache at times.

Agreed. I can't stand seeing people glued to their cell phones. They miss opportunities for real social interaction. But now and again, they come in handy.
