We had a chat around our office here to look at how we use our mobile phones. Now we don’t expect that our usage will be so very different to that of the general consumer but anyway we did a little survey on the operating system, model, network and some other habits of mobile use. We changed the names just in case some sales type person at a mobile company tried using the info to hassle anyone.

The results don’t surprise us really, well they wouldn’t as we all work together. Of note are a couple of trends which have taken place over the past few years. A few years back; say five years ago, we all had had phones from new, 90% of us had an iPhone and 90% of us were on contract.

The last few years, those of us who have managed to resist the temptation of having a free phone delivered tomorrow and the ensuing monthly charges have all jumped ship and moved to owing our own phones and using a pre pay system which prevents the monthly bill.

That no two of us have the same model could be due to personal preference or a wish for some sort of individuality. Then again, nowadays all the above perform the same functions. The only determining factors in deciding are camera quality( they are all good ) ; OS, there is not that much difference and screen size.
