Well I am not fully con, I do agree that we are a little too much dependent on electronics but it helps us in many ways.
For example, a smartphone has a lot of abilities other than calling, like a GPS. So, I am con but not fully and pure con.

Pro, you should try making arguments. Asserting your opinions does not win an actual debate.
