You should say:
What it is
Have you ever used it
And why do you think it can change the world
This is a great topic to choose because there are so many features of a mobile phone that you can talk forever about this. You can also talk about which features you use and why they are useful to you: camera, video, texting, calendar, weather, music player, GPS, web browser (shopping online, online banking etc)
The cue card mentions who invented it – you don’t need to know this information. You can say “I do not know who invented it but some of the top selling brands are “Apple” etc. If you don’t know when it was invented, you can say “I’m not exactly sure when it was invented but most people have been using them for the last decade at least.”
Another great topic which allows you to take your talk in any direction you want: international business, social media (Facebook, Youtube, Twitter), globalisation, online education etc
You can talk about: news, weather reports, films, soap operas, documentaries and education programs, escapism, relaxation, reality TV, chat shows etc
Cars, aeroplanes, trains. You can talk about each type as well as globalisation and tourism
To my mind, the greatest thing since sliced bread is a samrtphone. Without exaggration, I think that smart phones have revolutionised humanity.
They allow us to do amazing things and interact with the world in ways we never thought were possible. They can be used for making and recieving calls, texting friends, family and colleagues, getting and sharing news on social networks sites, checking email messages and even doing online banking. We also use theme to take photos and keep track of calender events. For example, in the past, I used to depend too much on my home PC for doing tasks like checking mails and browsing the web. Now that I have a smartphone, I no longer have to rush to a xomputer to edit a document or check my email. So first of all, this invention has mad our lives much easier providing us with an easy and fast way of communication, enabling to do various tasks all at the same time and freeing us frome the constraints of space. The second change brought by smartphones is that they have replaced many devices such as ebook readers, MP3 players, or cameras. If you want, you can use them for listening to music or watching a film. Also, there are apps for practically everything. They are quick to install and easy to use. Thus, having a smartphone makes waiting not as boring as in the past.
So I'm more than sure it's difficult to overestimate popularity of smartphones as wherever you go, you see people that are literally glued to their devices. Now we just can't imagine our lives without these devices.I've read that currently there are more than one billion samrtphone useers in the world. That's so impressive a figure. And this means that smartphones are more popular than PC. I'm assured that the smartphones are by far the most significant invention ever.

Tips: Don’t choose something impressive. The examiner will not give you a higher score because your ideas are impressive. Instead, choose something which is easy to talk about. Something which can have plenty of ideas for. If you don’t know who invented it or when – it doesn’t matter. It won’t affect your score at all.
