    Neat little infographic. Does it line up with how you use your phone?

    Well it's just sad that people are resigned we are going to lose our phones at some point and there is nothing we can do about it.

    Saddest part to me is that the biggest deciding factor for people is price. I mean it should be considered, but people end up paying almost 2 grand for the phone anyway. What's 50 bucks going to do compared to 2000?

    This looks extremely inaccurate. 10% calculator usage vs 1.8% Internet. What?

    Price has to be a big factor, that is to be expected.

    To the people HERE! I wonder how often does Mr. Dad who has a full time job with 2 kids checks his FB account or watch Netflix while on the bus. I'd like to see a breakdown by age.

    I took that into account but I still don't think it's representative.

    I would disagree. Is it a big factor? Yes. Should it be a big factor? Not in my opinion but it obviously is in many others.

    Hardly! People seem to be comparing people in this survey with contributors to forums such as this one. I would have thought that for the vast majority of "normal" users, the lack of internet usage could be in the right ball park.

    My kids, all professional people, say they use their 'phones as 'phones and not as playthings! Occasional internet use is limited to evenings after work.

    You're quite right. There are lots and lots of people like my mum who just use voice and text; it's harder to find non-smartphones these days but there's still a huge proportion of people that don't use any of the "smart" features at all.

    I'm at the other end of the scale; I'm always using the Internet/data services and vary rarely make calls. I'd be using an iPod Touch if it worked outside Wi-Fi range.

    I'm actually surprised that talking is still number 1.

    When was this study done? 2003?
    People still use their phones to talk?

    As for you, for me it's not the biggest factor, but for most it is.
