  1. Unlike traditional cell phones, smartphones let you choose how you want things done. You choose your applications, install them and configure them as you see fit. In contrast, regular cell phones offer the user very little configuration control. You're stuck with the features that come with the phone. For instance, if you don't like your cell phone's calendar feature, you probably can't trade it out for a different one. But with a smartphone, you can pick the exact calendar application that meets your taste and needs.
