    - Checking email, meetings, etc for work via Good app
    - Music player (Spotify)
    - Checking Safari for articles and other things
    - Checking sports scores, standings, etc in the Score app
    - Primary alarm clock as well as reminders

    I use mine for: phone, text, Whatsapp, email, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Safari, YouTube, camera, video, and of course Tapatalk to write on here.

    I don't play games really on my iPhone, and find the device fluid and generally a pleasure to use day to day. I really enjoy iOS overall. :)

    Technically all that goes under it being your personal computer. ;)

    I mostly just write - Tapatalk, notes, lists, emails.

    The cell phone allows me to leave the office and still take care of my customers. No games, no videos and NO social media. The camera does come in handy and my phone holds my schedule.

    From the looks at what most of you use your phone for . . . . you are not working.;)

    Yes but whilst you're at home watching tv, using your computer, or playing video games, some of us are glued to our phones. You can hold down a full-time job and still manage to drain a 6S+ battery daily. I do.:)

    Texting, I have a VoIP app for calls (cheaper than my pay as you go), instagram, games and random apps.

    I have a laptop for everything major, and youtube is better on a bigger screen!

    LOL! Not home watching TV, what a waste of time that would be. I have 31 employees right now and you would never be one of them if you used your phone for gaming enough to kill a S+ battery.:p

    I do zero gaming, either on my phone or on a dedicated games console. I just do a ton of other stuff on my phone. Why does number of employees come into this, or how much I use my phone if it doesn't affect my job in any way?

    The number does not have anything to do with it, why do you ask? Does it bother you?

    Sorry can not believe that it does not affect your job but what ever you say as I do not wish to argue.

    Have a great weekend.

    LOL! I agree.
    I still have no idea what chip my S+ has but it has performed without flaw.

    I love it when the 'higher than thou' swoop in to assume the work ethic of others based on their listing of what they do with their phones. As if those who work an 8+ hour day, in which they, like myself, are awake for 19 of the 24 hours, couldn't possibly find time to use our phones other than while at work. You know, such as perusing forums enough to amass thousands upon thousands of comments in a year's time o_O:D
