On forums and boards I started this sort of questions to know the uses but compare to them, here on GSMarena I am hoping to see more responses than usually I get.
My uses of mobile phone - Sony Ericsson P1i + Nokia N8:
Texting (plain SMS)
Phone Calls (Once in a while - use landline for regular calls)
Internet Browsing for information and for work
Manage 3 of my web sites based on my own management system including www.nomasla.net
This is my top most uses on P1i
= Writing Articles, concepts and ideas and/or reviews using Notes and/or Word Document
= Taking quick notes/numbers/info using handwriting
= Sketching out the logo concepts on P1i using Notes
- Business Card Scanner
- EBuddy, irc client, Opera Mini
These three with the texting usually go side by side
(Been doing all of these from around 4 years now)
GDESK - Used to design GDesk UIs over P1i too when UIQ was alive worldwide, still do for my own fun
Timer - My much need
Calendar for website renewal dates + tv show schedule + meetings
Alarm clock - not to get up tho, just to keep track of time zones
Document editing/viewing all the time
Reading blogs and forums
- Blue Tooth
- USB-on-the-Go - used it before too on PMP by Kingston, addicted to it
Giving demos of my portfolio
Taking photos all the time
- Photos of Business Cards (close up/macro)
- of Contacts on other pages (close up/macro)
- Photos of logos I sketch on papers I do this instead of scanning
- for colors combination for my designs
- for inspiration Logos + ads etc
- Street Photography, closeup random shots
Games time to time
Tried to do FMs but FM is not my thing tho it should be on these devices
On one of my China Phones I have TV receiver so when 4 times in a day electricity load-shedding kicks in, tv kicks in too if something important to come.
Well of course all of us have done all the above mentioned things some time at least if not habitual. So the answer would be yes to all questions cause at least once everyone has done it! I recommend changes these questions to "How often on a scale of 5 do you use effect settings in camera."
Well it's only a polite thought, not dictating any thing.
What about HDMI support? either connect wirelessly to a TV or cable conenct
Lightweight phones with voice dialing and a decent camera, and good sunlight visability
Internet Browsing:gsmarena,Youtube,Facebook, MSN, etc.
After I read everything on the list, I can conclude that I'm a smartphone addict! I think I can't live a day without my phone... My old Samsung Omnia 2 was stolen to me last January 9 and I told myself that I will not buy a phone till March of this year... but 3 days later I got my HTC Desire HD... really can't live without it...
That's what I do most with my C6-01:
- Listen to music (alot)
- Play games
- Social networks
- Shot HD videos
i personally could abandon any of the socializing media (facebook, twitter, etc.). Not to be confused with email.
-Downloading of contents, eg: songs, videos, document etc.
-As a flash drive/storage.
well my Nokia battery stats over the weekend.22 %web browsing 1%pmessaging 5%music 16%home screen 3%gps13%gallery camera39%other stuff.1%talk time.again other stuff means lot of internet applications.
Need to add few points:
Email: Push email, Exchange support
Gaming: Casual gaming (e.g. angry birds, snake) or intense gaming (NFS, Modern Combat)
Connect: wifi networks
Why not categorized the survey according to the status of the phone. Example, what are the features needed for low-end, mid-end and high-end phones, so that the manufacturers will have an idea of what will be their next product.
