As a specialist insurer of mobile phones, it makes sense that Protect your bubble have an insight into how these gadgets make a difference to the lives their customers. People rely on their phones now more than ever – especially if they have a smartphone that does so much more than calling and texting. A recent survey by Protect your bubble found the average person spends 56 minutes a day on their smart phone which equates to 15 days a year! But what effect does this have on people? Are smart phones enriching people’s lives and could they actually be a smart choice when it comes to improving brainpower?
Instant access to the internet, whenever and wherever, is a definite bonus. Although now people have got a wealth of information constantly at their fingertips it could be argued that people may not stop and think about things and try to fathom them out as much as previous generations, instead they just Google it or search Wikipedia. According to research this very act of looking up information makes people more inclined to embed and recall that information at a later date, versus passively absorbing the information during conversation or through media sources like TV and radio. So the fact that mobile phone users now take the time to look stuff up means they are more inclined to absorb the information and use it later.
On top of access to the internet, there are numerous apps on smart phones that exist purely to stimulate the mind. There are downloadable dictionaries; fun educational apps for kids, quiz apps that help pass the time and also plenty of old, favourite games to test the grey matter, such as Scrabble or Tetris. There is no denying that they’re designed to test and improve brainpower. And to top it off it’s easy to push brainpower further and play with friends as well as share trivia in an instant on with built-in social networks like Facebook and Twitter.
Although the art of conversation may not be benefiting, there are many aspects to mobile phones that engage the brain without people even realising it. Even Google Maps has a place when it comes to educating about peoples surroundings. It’s all clever stuff and it is enlightening people about things on a scale that would have been the stuff of dreams just 10-15 years ago.
