A smartphone is a handheld personal computer with
a mobile operating system and an integrated mobile broadband cellular
network connection for voice, SMS, and Internet data
communication; most if not all smartphones also support Wi-Fi.
Smartphones are typically pocket-sized, as opposed to
tablet computers, which are much larger. They are able to run a
variety of software components, known as “apps”. Most
basic apps (e.g. event calendar, camera, web browser) come
pre-installed with the system, while others are
available for download from official sources like the Google Play Store
r Apple App Store. Apps can receive bug fixes
and gain additional functionality through software updates; similarly,
operating systems are able to update. Modern smartphones have a
touchscreen color display with a graphical user interface
that covers the front surface and enables the user
to use a virtual keyboard to type and press onscreen icons to activate
"app" features. Mobile payment is now a
common theme amongst most smartphones.
Today, smartphones largely fulfill their users'
needs for a telephone, digital camera and video camera, GPS navigation,
a media player, clock, news, calculator, web browser,
handheld video game player, flashlight, compass, an address book,
ote-taking, digital messaging, an event calendar, etc.
Typical smartphones will include one or more of the following
sensors: magnetometer, proximity sensor, barometer,
gyroscope, or accelerometer. Since 2010, smartphones adopted integrated
virtual assistants, such as Apple Siri, Amazon Alexa,

Google Assistant, Microsoft Cortana, BlackBerry Assistant and Samsung
Bixby. Most smartphones produced from 2012 onward have
high-speed mobile broadband 4G LTE capability and touchscreen starting
grow in use more.
