Smartphones are a class of mobile phones and of multi-purpose mobile computing devices.
They are distinguished from feature phones by their stronger hardware capabilities and extensive mobile operating systems,
which facilitate wider softwareinternet (including web browsing[1] over mobile broadband), and multimedia functionality (including music, video, cameras, and gaming),
alongside core phone functions such as voice calls and text messaging. Smartphones typically include various sensors that can be leveraged by their software, such as a magnetometerproximity sensorsbarometergyroscope, an accelerometer, and support wireless communications protocols such as BluetoothWi-Fi, and satellite navigation.

Early smartphones were marketed primarily towards the enterprise market, attempting to bridge the functionality of standalone personal digital assistant (PDA) devices with support for cellular telephony,
but were limited by their battery life, bulky form, and the immaturity of wireless data services. In the 2000s, BlackBerryNokia‘s Symbian platform, and Windows Mobile began to gain market traction, with models often featuring QWERTY keyboards or resistive touchscreen input,
and emphasizing access to push email and wireless internet.
Since the unveiling of the iPhone in 2007, the majority of smartphones have featured thin,
slate-like form factors, with large, capacitive screens with support for multi-touch gestures rather than physical keyboards, and offer the ability for users to download or purchase additional applications from a centralized store, and use cloud storage and synchronization,
virtual assistants, as well as mobile payment services.
