Poll: Which three of the following functions do you use most often on your smartphone?

I'll try estimate which are the most used three. Probably social networking, gaming and web browser with a split between camera, txt, email, & phone coming in a close fourth.

Reading news would probably be split between web browser and specific apps like Independent, google mags and g+

The question is which 3 you use most often but you can tick as many as you like.

What interests me is that - so far - it seems that these expensive phones are used more for texting than for making calls.

Today, the check-out girl at my local LIDL, pulled out her 'smart-phone' when I queried the price of 6 wholemeal rolls [which had a 30% off sticker on the outer wrapping]. I thought she was going to phone the shop manager ... but it turned out she was just looking up a number code to cancel the transaction and refund me with 12p ... impressive stuff!

My top three are;

  1. clock/alarm clock ( don't wear a watch )

  2. phone

  3. text.

In truth they are the only 3 functions I use.

The main one I use isn't there.

Mine is mainly used as a PDA, with a phone function which I use maybe two or three times a month.

Phone, text & music (audio book reader).

Like morddwyd, the most used PDA function, and also mapping (satnav & memory map ordnance maps), but they aren't listed.

Strangely, the phone and text functions are used on a Nokia 700 that's nicely small and pocket sized, but too small for serious web browsing stuff. the rest of the functions are used on a 4.5" screen HTC that's far too big to live in a trouser pocket!

If the purpose of the poll is to design future phones, don't forget that some of us want smaller not bigger 12" screens...

It's funny but my main use is as a phone, followed by web use then camera.

Texting is some thing I hate doing but it could just be an age thing, takes me about 5 minutes to send a text but my daughter and son can send a short novel in same time.
