Writing essay: Technology

Hi leaders, please help me check this essay, thank you so much.

With the rapid advancement of communication technology: smart phones, tablets and other mobile devices, some people believe that the disadvantages outweigh the advantages.
To what extent do you agree or disagree.

Owing to the prevalence of communication devices such as smartphone, tablets or other mobile tools, there are several suggestions that the disadvantages of this development can eclipsed its advantages. Personally, I agree with this point of view.

On the one hand, I understand why people tend to think that such advancement will impact negatively on users. It is true that over-reliance on smartphones or tablets might make users more addicted and vulnerable to the real world. Due to the lack of face to face interaction, people are more likely to become social isolated and even lead to the depression. Moreover, physical health problems including backache, eyesight degradation, and obesity can be ascribed to the excessive use of those device owing to the habit of spending hours on social network platforms. Consequently, the working productivity will be reduced considerably.

On the one hand, I believe that the merits of this advancement can overshadow its demerits, Firstly, smartphones and tablets are seen as the fastest and the most convenient means of communication. Compared to the situation in the past in which the communication was restricted by geographic adversities, modern users can conveniently keep in touch with people from all corners in the world. Consequently, as the distance is no longer the matter of concern, the social circle can be expanded more easily. Secondly, by means of the explosion in modern communication tools, users can save a great deal of money for making contact. Video conferences, for example, enable business transaction to be performed without having to pay money for business trips.

In conclusion, although the cutting-edge communication devices bring certain disadvantages to people’s psychological and physical health will be affected negatively due to the heavy dependence upon such tools, it seems to me that they will make our life more convenient.
