Each smartphone model has different options or apps that let you customize your device. You not only have the ability to personalize your phone, but also (by connecting your phone to your computer) to personalize your computer. For example, you can create a webcam: rather than spending money to buy a webcam, you can take your Nokia phone which runs the Symbian operating system and use its camera function as a webcam for your PC.
