Smart Phones, Devoted Users [INFOGRAPHIC]

girlhugscellphone   Smart Phones, Devoted Users [INFOGRAPHIC] With the recent announcement of the upcoming iPhone 5, I thought today would be a good day to profile another smartphone-related infographic. We all know that people love their smartphones, so much so, that they refuse to be parted with them, even at night while sleeping (how many of you use your phone as an alarm clock?). But according to this infographic, iPhone users would rather give up sex, bathing, and coffee, before handing over their precious device. Now THAT’S hardcore fanboy-ism right there.

And did you know the first cellphone cost almost $4,000? That’s something to think about the next time you are complaining to yourself about the high prices of phones these days. What we are paying today is nothing compared to what people paid 30 years ago.And the $4,000 phone was just a brick of a device – nothing smart about it, except its ability to make phone calls. Forget playing games or checking social networks.

Let us know in the comments below what you think of the infographic. Can you live without your mobile phone? If someone asked you to give up your phone, would you? If not, what would you be prepared to sacrifice in your life instead?

the iphone 5 launch was boring and no innovation to see. Oh wow it’s getting a 4inch size and 4G LTE speed big deal has if windows phone & android already have this on their pho.nes over past year now. What best smartphone was launch before iphone 5 was windows phone lumia 920. Wow now that phone a.nd many innovation features was twice better than boring boring iphone 5. I dont know why people want to upgrade or get an iphone? It just a boring smartphone which also slow in adding features and yes copycat other smartphones UI.

People if you want a smartphone that just works great for personal. Or business use get a windows phone. Have you seen the beautiful UI and live tile apps which gives me info before opening app. It makes iphone or android apps icons look Dead and Boring.
