The comparison between a smartphone and a mobile phone shows that a smartphone has more options, though this doesn’t necessarily mean it’s better than a mobile phone. Your preference determines which phone is the better option. Maybe you’re looking for a straightforward phone to use for calls and texts, and don’t need all those extra functions. The straightforwardness of a mobile phone can be very useful, just like the physical keyboard is convenient in use. If you want access to the Internet, want to download apps and take pictures, you’ll likely prefer a smartphone.
