Task 40.2

Imagine that you are doing a project on what people use their smartphones for in Zetland. You have found some data on the subject – the results of the opinion polls (see the diagram below).

Comment on the data in the diagram and give your opinion on the subject of the project.

What people use their smartphones for

  • 79% 79%
  • 78% 78%
  • 58% 58%
  • 48% 48%
  • 15% 15%

Write 200-250 words.

Use the following plan:
– make an opening statement on the subject of the project;
– select and report 2–3 facts;
– make 1–2 comparisons where relevant;
– outline a problem that can arise with using smartphones and suggest a way of solving it;
–  conclude by giving your opinion on the role of smartphones in our life.

The smartphone phenomenon has been an area of extensive research recently. As part of my project, I have found a bar diagram that presents some data on what people living in Zetland use their smartphones for. In my essay I will comment on the data and express my opinion on the subject of the project.

As can be seen from the data, making phone calls and accessing emails comprise a sizeable proportion of the purposes smartphones are used for (78% and 79% respectively). Two other desirable uses are browsing the Internet (58%) and mobile gaming (48%).

Surprisingly, smartphone shopping is not as widespread as the other smartphone activities the diagram shows. Despite the rise of online shopping and many mobile banking apps which turn a smartphone into a digital wallet, making purchases via a smartphone receives the lowest percentage.

It is worth noting that due to the growing availability of applications and smartphone owners’ temptation to download more apps to their device, a common problem may arise: low or full storage space. The standard solution to improve the memory performance of a smartphone is to delete unneeded downloads and store some in Google Drive.

In conclusion, I am convinced that smartphones play a key role in people’s lives since they have enormous benefits and advanced features. Сonsidering the various uses of smartphones presented in the diagram, it seems reasonable to assume that their computing functions attract people, whatever the problem.
