The smartphone market has exploded over the last few years. The first smartphone was IBM’s Simon, designed in 1992 and released in 1993. Since then, cell phone companies and manufacturers have teamed up to offer consumers dynamic and innovative communication devices.

Smartphones have become an integral part of our everyday lives. They keep us connected through voice calls, text messages, emails, the internet and even videos. As technology has evolved, so has the smartphone.

Smartphones range in size from the 3.5 inches to 5.5 inches. Compared to the larger and heavier cell phones of the 90’s, these phones are light and offer easy touch access to their features.

Another very popular smartphone feature is the ability to add apps.

Most smartphones offer the applications that can be used for just about anything. There are apps to login to your bank account, check the weather, manage contacts, change TV stations, organize your activities, download and listen to music, watch movies, shop, play games, get directions, check stocks and of course communicate on social media sites.
