Synonyms of "Cell" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between cell phone and mobile ?
A: Nobody uses the term "mobile" any more (other than maybe commercials about "mobile devices" which can refer to cell phones, ipads, etc.). In fact, when people make fun of older people, they use this term!

We call them "cell phones." However, since everyone uses a cell phone more than a home phone now, we can simply call them a "phone" (in the past, usually only referred to home phones) or "smartphone."
