Elders require it for growth of the business. Women are not behind. They need it for their favorite serials. So we can see everyone has some excuses to possess a smartphone.
I am not an exception. I too had one. I was very happy to have it but due to technical problems or say manufacture defects I was irritated to keep it. Eventually I had to discard it and shift to an ordinary keypad phone without MP3 or MP4 facilities.  I was happy that I would not face any problem in maintenance but this happiness did not last long when I saw my colleagues proudly leering at me to have once again. To the corner of my heart I had become inferior to my friends whenever I had to take selfie or play music or video or browse on internet. I could not fulfill my wish with my ordinary phone although the basic purpose of the phone was met. So out of suppressed desire of course on my birthday I bought a new set of smartphone.

You see how one cannot live without smartphone if he/she has had a little experience of it. One day he/she is bound to buy a new one. The pros and cones of smartphone cannot be done away.
