Cost
• The biggest disadvantage of a smartphone is its cost compared to
standard mobile phones. A smartphone costs considerably more from
a feature phone.
• Smartphones also require expensive data plans which most standard
phones do not.
• Internet access is provided at an additional cost, raising the cost of
owning a smartphone.
Security
• Threats from SMS
This term is used to name phishing attempts sent via SMS,
and is used to fool victims into giving up personal data.

Free Wi-Fi hotspots always look attractive, but they can
prove to be both rife with malware and provided by
scammers looking to capture your personal data such as
passwords, credit card data.

than it is on a computer and characters are packed closely
together, all of which limits how fast you can type.
Security and threats

time and energy
 As the trend goes on, people are becoming addicted to there
features
 People are very casual with their personal data which is a danger to
themselves
The features provided by the smartphone
companies and their operating systems are not
that much secure
 They have much vulnerability in them which
can be exploited in many different ways
 It makes a user unsecure and helpless in this
technologically active era
Methods of hacking
Following are the various methods used by hackers/attackers to hack into smartphones
for their purposes:
Snooping:
Software's allowing the hacker to access the data of a smartphone without the
permission and knowledge of Owner. E.g. Trojans
Phishing:
It is spam technique. Hacker would try to communicate a User , disguised as someone
User may know, and try to get information from him.
Network Spoofing:
Attacker can design a rouge network point and the smartphone can try to
connect with it automatically. This will give the attacker access to all the User’s
traffic
Wireless Hacking:
Wi fi can be hacked easily and all the incoming and outgoing data can be exploited.
Phone Cloning:
Not easy to work on, but soft wares are there to provide the cloning process of a phone.
Hacker can receive the calls, SMS of a User.
Dodgy Apps:

to your contact list, phone calls, GPS location, and credit card
data, often without notifying you

smartphone
Bluetooth:

To date, the biggest smartphone breach occurred on Google
Android phones. Users that downloaded certain wallpaper
applications actually opened their phones up to hackers who
harvested the phone and voice-mail numbers, as well as data
used to disclose a user's physical location. The wallpapers
were downloaded more than 1 million times, and information
was transmitted to a Chinese Website. In one week, Google
had to take down more than 80 such applications to protect
its users.
Continual growth of smartphones
According to New York times total sales of smartphones will reach 1.2 billion
units before the end of the 2014, a 23.1 percent increase over 2013
Android continues to dominate these sales with an estimated market share of
80.2 percent in 2014
Smartphone adoption reflects the trend toward emerging market growth in the
wider technology device space
Future of smartphones
Flexible Screens:
It may soon be the case where smartphones are able provide a large screen to watch and
play your favorite movies and games while maintaining a pocket able size. Screens can be
folded and unfolded
In-Built Projector:
It features a built-in DLP (Digital Light Projection) WVGA projector that is able to project
future-features-smart-phones at up to 50 inches in size at 15 lumens
3D Screens & Holograms
 At present, we have a couple of 3D smartphones in the market, such as the LG
Optimus 3D, the Motorola MT810 but next path could possibly be holographic
projections
These will be a combination of 3D future-features-smart-phones/ and
projections from the smartphone
Enhance the environment
 In future, smartphones will be able to layer the world we perceive
through our senses with enhanced informational content: maps,
tags, suggestions, even ads, appearing and fading as we walk down
the street
Prevention from hacking
Be sure to change your phone's remote access PIN
Use strong passwords that would be difficult for anyone to guess
 Turn off auto-complete so that passwords aren't stored on your phone
 Delete your browsing history frequently
Don’t leave your phone unattended in a public place
Avoid using unprotected Bluetooth networks and turn off your when you
aren’t using it
 Use a protected app to store pin numbers and credit cards
Avoid accessing important locations such as bank accounts via public Wi-
Fi that may not be secure
conclusion
Smartphones have a combined influence on
people. People are becoming anti-social and
because of it people get scammed easily
whereas on the other hand these are very
helpful in everyway and have made lots of
things easier for the human race.
