Just stumbled on this SE a few days ago, and It has inspired me to get into riddles and puzzles myself. This is the second riddle I have ever written, I imagine it should be pretty easy (Though that is easy to say when I wrote it).

I will add hints as time goes on, if I need to. Good luck, have fun, and any feedback is much appreciated.

With some help, I'm very smart, alone I am quite dumb

My convenience is unrivaled, to my lures you shall succumb

I come in many shapes and sizes, I'm the cause of much debate.

Those who know me well, they love me. The clueless tend to hate.

Ever changing, never ceasing, I won't soon say good-bye,

If you think you know my name then tell me, what am I?

Are you a

Cell phone/smart phone?

With some help, I'm very smart, alone I am quite dumb

With the help of the internet, you can access any knowledge in the world; by itself it's not super useful if completely isolated

My convenience is unrivaled, to my lures you shall succumb

It's super convenient to have a phone, you can use it for anything...but it's also distracts a lot of people and is a time waster!

I come in many shapes and sizes, I'm the cause of much debate.

Phones come in many shapes and sizes, and people debate which phone is best

Those who know me well, they love me. The clueless tend to hate.

People who use phones a lot love their usefulness; people who don't tend to think it's newfangled technology that gives you cancer

Ever changing, never ceasing, I won't soon say good-bye,

Phones always change and update (thanks, Moore's Law!) and aren't likely to leave society anytime soon!

If you think you know my name then tell me, what am I?

Hopefully a cellphone/smartphone!

I have a feeling you are

A phone

With some help, I'm very smart, alone I am quite dumb

Smart Phones are personal computers with high-speed access to the internet (other computers), whereas so-called "dumb" phones are not.

My convenience is unrivaled, to my lures you shall succumb

Most people carry a smartphone everywhere because they are so convenient

I come in many shapes and sizes, I'm the cause of much debate.

There are many phone manufacturers, and fans tend to defend their favourite models vehemently.

Those who know me well, they love me. The clueless tend to hate.

Some people who don't easily understand technology dislike the rise of smartphones.

Ever changing, never ceasing, I won't soon say good-bye,

New models are always coming out, and smartphones are only growing in popularity.

True with human

I come in many shapes and sizes, I'm the cause of much debate.

People can be tall,short,fat,slim, and people quarrel a lot

Those who know me well, they love me. The clueless tend to hate.

Your friends and your parents love you.

Ever changing, never ceasing, I won't soon say good-bye.
