Survey on mobile phone usage

We at GSMArena are working on an article about the way people use their mobile phones nowadays. That's why we need your help with this survey. We kindly ask you to participate Ė all poll questions are listed on this page and it should take you only a couple of minutes to fill them out. Here is a short explanation of the available options.

  • Daily is for every feature you use more than once a week, preferably every day.
  • Weekly is for features you use a few times a month.
  • Rarely should be your answer for stuff that you only use a few times a year or stuff you use in a seasonal manner.
  • Never goes beyond the obvious and is suitable even for features you have tried once or twice, but you didnít like how it went and you donít plan on using it again.
  • Would if I could is for those tasks that you would really like to perform with your phone, but you are unable to do so at this stage for whatever the reason - your phone doesn't support them, they are prohibitively expensive in your country or you simply think cell phones aren't comfortable enough for those yet.

What weíre looking for is your honest input on how often you use the features listed below. Thank you.
