What is the first use of a smartphone?
A call would be tempted to answer. But this is not the case, it is far from the first use statistics according to a study by Pew Research Center.
The list of uses is in order ...
- Taking a picture. This explains why Samsung makes cameras connected to the Internet.
- Exchanging SMS.
- Surfing the Web.
- Exchanging emails.
- Making a video.
- Downloading an application.
- Consulting a bank account
