How Are Smartphones Being Used? [INFOGRAPHIC]

Ads by Google

Mobile phones have come a long way over the years. From heavy bricks with huge aerials, mobile phones (sorry, cellphones for our US readers!) are now small, light, sleek and carries an operating system that enables you to install apps and access the Internet. Named smartphones, the two main contenders in this space are the iPhone and Android, both of whom continually introduce new features in order to stay one step ahead of the other.

But how are smartphones really used? What are the most used features? Our infographic this week comes from Tatango which shows that text messaging is the number one use of a smartphone followed by taking photos and then Internet browsing. But what I want to know is where is actual telephone calling on this list? Is it too radical these days to think of a phone as a tool to make phone calls?

Tell us in the comments what your top three uses of your smartphone are.  Does the list below look accurate to you?
