When I dipped my toe into the smartphone market (out of curiosity, not need) I bought a cheapo HomTom with a 5" screen for little more than the cost a basic "stupid phone". I'm glad I didn't waste any more cash on a more trendy "must have" brand. The free apps are mostly crap and at 5" the screen is pretty much useless to me for internet browsing. The on screen buttons for writing text are so small I end up taking ages writing the simplest message or web address. When we see people queueing up outside a phone shop to buy the latest $1000 Iphone I am convinced that humankind took a wrong turn somewhere along the evolutionary road.
Personally I have over 200 apps on my smartphone and find it an essential part of work and home life. All sorts of things such as tracking my pensions, bank accounts, transferring money abroad, work emails, booking apps for airlines, scanning wine bottles to see reviews, sat nav, cycling apps etc etc.
