Use of smartphone functions decreasing

Thursday 9 January 2014 | 11:59 CET | Author: Sanne de Bruyckere, Tine Niezink | Background
The use of various functions on smartphones has decreased over the past year, according to consumer research by Telecompaper. The decline may be explained by the growing number of older people using smartphones. The survey also found that men use more functions of the phone than women. Among the most popular features were the alarm, used by 62 percent of smartphone owners at least once a month.
