The following is a student's response to the question: "What are the good points and bad points of cell phones?"

Cell phones have a good point.  For example, you can contact with your family and get disaster information when you suffer a disaster.  There are many earthquakes in Japan due to lying on the circum-Pacific earthquake zone.  So, it is convenient for sufferers to do such things.

On the other hand, they have a bad point.  Flick input may lead to forgetting kanji and using a keyboard slowly.  Because most people who use smart phone depend on predicted conversion system, and using flick input not using keyboard.  However, when it comes to getting a job, you have to use keyboard input.  Therefore, as is often the case with using technology, we should take advantage of cell phones skillfully.
