A smartphone is a portable personal computer with a mobile operating system with features useful for handheld use. Smartphones, which are typically pocket-sized (as opposed to tablets, which are much larger than a pocket), have the ability to place and receive voice/video calls and create and receive text messages, have virtual assistants (such as Siri, Google Assistant, Alexa, Cortana, Bixby), a note-taking application, an event calendar, a media player, video games, GPS navigation, digital camera and video camera. Smartphones can access the Internet through a cellular network or Wi-Fi and can run a variety of third-party software components ("apps" from places like Google Play Store or Apple App Store). They typically have a color display with a graphical user interface that covers the front surface. The display is almost always a touchscreen that enables the user to use a virtual keyboard to type words, numbers, and other characters, and press onscreen icons to activate "app" features.

"1. Conserving energy The laptop is too heavy and too far away. It is easier and more logical to simply whip out that phone that is 99% likely to be in your pocket. Not to mention, instant entertainment at the tap of fingers from a mere one hand. The far inferior laptop typically includes a keyboard 1.55555 times too wide to permit only one hand to be able to press the letter a and then the letter "l" in under one second."
