Poll: Which smartphone feature could you not live without?

  Quickbeam 16:31 09 Nov 2012

The ability to make calls...

MP3 music and audiobook playing comes a close second though:)

Apologies to Quickbeam, but I have now removed the 'Phone calls' option.

I didn't really think that one through properly - it would have been a very one-sided poll if I hadn't done so.

Luckily it only had one vote when I removed it.

Carry on everyone.

The reassuring feeling that it's still in your pocket.

And my OS my memory maps for when out and about.

Can I have my vote reallocated to maps?

  davidcourt 17:22 09 Nov 2012

Sure, I'll vote for it and you can have my vote. Deal?

I went with organiser, my memory is appalling, especially for dates, birthdays and social events planned... I forget the lot, so my phone is my memory for things to do and places to be.

The survey doesn't greatly differentiate between a standard mobile phone and a smartphone. Text messaging is probably a high priority on any mobile but the ability to have e-mail, pim and ease of sync and other feature eg GPS are important in a smartphone. I can live without all of them. Some are more important than others. What about multi-media messaging?

Of course it does.

It only mentions smartphones.

If you don't have one, don't take part.

How easy is that to "differentiate"?

It all depends how smart you are...
