25 Things You Didn’t Know About The Mobile Phone

We use mobile phones everyday. Well, most people do. In fact, it’s probably hard to imagine a time before mobile phones. Why is that? It’s because they’ve become such an integral part of our daily life that the very ways in which we do business and carry out our activities has changed. Thanks to the mobile revolution there are now more phones in India than there are toilets. Is this a bad thing or a good thing? Well, both. But the fact remains that more and more people are getting connected to the internet and the mobile phone plays a huge role in that.

There is no end to the amount of digitization that our world can undergo. In fact, most of our jobs could probably be replaced by high functioning artificial intelligence at some point. Until that point though, we’re going to be stuck with our measly little smart phones. And yes, we are using the term “measly” very facetiously. That computer in your pocket is more powerful than the computer that took us to the moon. That is saying a lot. That means that using just your iphone, you could actually fly all the way to the moon and back (assuming you had rocket boosters, oxygen tanks, and radiation-resistant shielding). These are 25 things you didn’t know about the mobile phone in your hand.

    They clearly havent tested a Nokia 3310 or 3210 as the most durable phone in the world… 900ft drop test and the phone still works, being crushed by an infantry fighting vehicle, the phone still works.

    Mobile phones have been proven to carry bacteria and germs. If there's one new routine to make for yourself, it's keeping that smartphone shiny and clean. If you’re looking to sanitize your phone, water may not do the job even alcohol-based cleaners may damage your phone. Atom cleanse phone sterilizer which I'm currently using is more effective to sanitize our personal devices. It is a mobile phone cleaner that kills bacteria and germs in under 8 minutes using non-harmful UV light. It's a good way to keep us and our family healthy and germ free.
