Approximately 11.5 years ago I received this as a gift from my parents. I was one of the first students in my entire school to own a cellphone. In fact there were still many teachers who still did not own cellphones themselves. When I look back on the functions of this phone and compare it to my iPhone 5 I purchased about a year ago, the quality of this phone would rate well below 5 in my opinion. I mostly remember using my virgin mobile device to download ringtones, play games and to reach my parents.
Comparing the abilities of my iPhone and my first cell phone ever, my virgin mobile phone would be nearly useless for me now. I use my iPhone to do nearly everything. I check emails, send emails, pay bills, shop, read documents, send text messages/ photographs/ videos, use social media apps, play games, I’ve even completed written assignments from my phone. My phone also serves as my alarm clock, appointment book, schedule, flashlight and calculator.
It’s quite stunning that just 11 years ago my cell phone had three main purposes and now my cell phone possesses more features than I can name.
