I sometimes use mobile phone while with friends. Actually, I don't like that but I sometimes need to answer some messages to keep up with other friends who are not there with me at the time.
About the pros, I think mobile phones are a means of communication, they help us stay in touch with family and friends. They can also be a useful tool with an Internet connection, we can use them for browsing, reading news or learning something.
Besides the pros mentioned, there are also disadvantages. We can be distracted by social media like Facebook, Instagram,... We might find ourselves spending too much time surfing Facebook which does not benefit anything on our live.
To be concluded, mobile phones are tools which are there to make our live easier. We should use them to suit our needs and don't overuse.
