If the messages were sent by general people, a lot more time would have consumed. Imagine if it happens today, you don’t have Smartphone, you cannot call anyone neither receive, no Whatsapp, no Facebook, no Google, no Videos and nothing else that you do easily with your Smartphone.
Did you think?How it was? Terrible, Horrible right?If we even can’t imagine our single day without Smartphone how will it be, if we actually don’t have it?According to IDC (A research and analytical wing), 1.2 Billion Smartphones were sold across globe in 2014.
