Smartphones: Can’t live without ’em

iPhone /

Looks like smartphones are growing in popularity to the point where people are becoming prone to hyperbole. All Things D reports on numbers from the Online Publishers Association which showed that 68 percent of people who own a smartphone say they “cannot live without” it. This may not be 100 percent true, but those who feel this way are likely to feel like they've lost something vital if their iPhone breaks or malfunctions. For them, the iPhone repair technicians at iResQ might really seem like life-savers.

“While I’m not surprised to see more than 90 percent of respondents choosing 'access information' as their most common activity on their phone, I am surprised to see that the information is more likely … a weather report. Huh. No word on tomato soup ordering, though,” Peter Kafka writes on All Things D, referring to Apple's popular-yet-annoying Zooey Deschanel Siri ads, in which the actress uses her iPhone to order soup.

Other numbers from this survey showed that iPhones are not only wildly popular, they are extremely effective devices for advertisers. About 45 percent of respondents said they are likely to take action after seeing an iPhone commercial and 19 percent made a purchase at a store after seeing an ad.

Those who need their smartphone for day-to-day survival should not fret if the device breaks down. Owners can get iPhone repair and have their device back to normal soon, ready as ever to join air and water in sustaining life.
