Never jumped on the phone bandwagon for some reason.

Why'd you guys jump on board when that trend started?
It has nothing to do with trends they're convenient for people who live in developed areas.

I get that they're handy if an issue comes up but it seems like the bulk of their usage goes elsewhere.

I like being able to access the internet anywhere.

edit: this turned out larger than i thought but you could just read the last paragraph

it's one of those things you wouldn't find use or dependency in unless you actually use it, and when you do it makes so many things much easier, its not absolutely necessary to use to live but it does save a lot of time doing the things id normally spend more time doing less efficiently

a phone is what it had developed from (hence smartphone) but its much more than that now, it's more like a PDA that people actually use

I have many utility apps that make using public transport much easier, such as moovit or citymapper, which i swear  by on bus times and train routes, uber is great for super cheap taxis, me and my friends have used that a couple times too

I often use it to pay friends over paypal instantly if they pay for an expensive meal or such, i dont have to go to an atm and get money out and then swap denominations or change or whatever, i can just type the exact amount and split it ( calculator on the phone is handy for that too )

i have a one-touch flashlight button that just uses the camera flash as a flashlight, and its really bright, so whenever i need a flashlight, i can just use my phone which i always have with me

if im out and about or doing some long commuting, given a comfortable enough area i would tether the phone to my laptop and do work or browse the web while on the train, or that it also doubles as a music player, and id remember the times where id have to carry both a phone and an ipod or something

sometimes i see a nice car or something cool, maybe a nice sunset, i can just pull out my phone and take a picture, and smartphone cameras are getting really really good these days, some even having full 3d capture and slow-motion

so i wouldnt really say its a bandwagon, it just has a lot of hardware like GPS, internet connectivity, wifi, accelerometers, camera, and all these come together in a single portable device you can access easily and conveniently, and there are apps that take advantage of them, where in the past you would have to carry around a lot of stuff to get that kind of functionality everywhere

its a swiss army knife of communication, and while i said a lot about why its useful, its not something you can't live without, obviously, its just one of those things where if you used it enough, you just think "how did i live before this"

i knew a guy who didnt have internet in his house until like 2011, the fact that one day he could he suddenly had access to all this information and entertainment was pretty mind blowing to him, but of course he went a lot of his life without it, so had he not ever seen it, he probably wouldve went on living his life as such

it was like me getting my first nonstick pan, back then i was fine with any pan

now i only get nonstick pans, but had i never i wouldve still been okay with cooking with any old pan

i dont want to use the word ignorance, but the time i couldve used to plan train journeys, or photo opportunities ive missed, bus iteneraries, waiting in line at the atm are all inconveniences my smartphone has effectively dashed when it does all of this stuff in the tap of a button

All I know is by now an android phone would be sluggish and this is still going strong.
What makes you say that? 5+ years ago, maybe, but now? The iPhone is great (it was the first smartphone I ever owned and I'm definitely no Android fanboy) but Android has come a long way from being the scattered outlier that was once loaded with freeware and used as the basis for inconsistent and shoddy budget systems. At this point, several Android systems are highly polished and run extremely smooth on high quality devices rivaling the iPhone in terms of build quality and design. For example, the Galaxy S7, Oneplus 3(T), Google Pixel and HTC 10 are all premium tier devices offering features, performance and responsiveness equal to (and in certain cases surpassing) even the latest iPhones in versatility, raw power, camera and screen quality.

I'm not saying this to bash Apple or get you to buy something other than an iPhone, but Android has become so well adopted and polished by a few big players that the old idea of Android being this versatile but sluggish scrappy OS while iPhones are more responsive, fast and smooth really doesn't hold up that well anymore. Especially if you're coming from a 5s, you'll find that there's going to be a lot of Android phones out there that'll blow it out of the water in terms of smoothness and responsiveness. And this is coming from someone who used to have an iPhone and has had plenty of opportunity to compare the latest models to top Android ones.

I don't know why you're twisting my words. Android is known to get sluggish over time, no matter how "polished" it is. It's the same with any OS, just seems to happen sooner on android devices due to the nature of the software.

Dismissing it as a "trend" and "bandwagon" is kind of dishonest in my opinion. Mobile phones have become as much a part of our society as the internet has, so it calling it that is no different from saying that using the internet is jumping on a bandwagon.

It's an extremely useful and versatile device that most people rely on and use for a number of things throughout their day-to-day lives. It's a necessity for many jobs where being available is a must and can be cheaper than having an actual landline these days. It's a way of staying connected and it can be very useful for a myriad of things.

In the mornings, I wake up by relying on the alarm clock in my smartphone. It's highly customizable, so I have different alarms set for different days of the weeks without having to change or check it frequently. Throughout the day, it serves as a clock and, when necessary, a stopwatch and timer. First thing I do when I wake up is check the weather which is displayed by default on my lockscreen. It tells me how warm or cold it's going to be and whether it'll be rainy, cloudy or foggy. If the weather were to change later on, I get a quick notification telling me a storm and heavy rain is on its way. Then, I check my calendar and to-do list (synced to my PC and work/private accounts) to remind me of any plans, appointments or tasks for the day. Later, I use it to read the news. All the major news outlets have got free apps to read their top stories on the go. If I have to travel, it tells me what train/bus to take on what platform and at what time. It tells me where to check in for my plane, stores my boarding pass and gives me constant updates of changes to my itinerary. If I need to text, call or video chat with anyone, I can do so instantly. At work, I receive my emails and documents directly on my phone so I can access them even when not at my desk. It has Word, Excel, Adobe PDF and so on, as well as note-taking software in case I need to write something down real quick. When bored, I have games, movies, forums and the entire worldwide web at my fingertips to keep me occupied. My entire music collection as well as Spotify account are on my phone, allowing me to listen to any song anywhere and anytime. If I'm hungry in the evening and don't feel like cooking, it takes me 15 seconds on the app to order a pizza from my favorite place and have it delivered at my doorstep. Finally, it keeps me in touch with friends and family through apps, group chats and so forth.

And then there's just all of the other stuff that comes with it. My phone's a flashlight that I can activate with a single motion. Drawing a circle on the screen opens a very solid camera for both stills and video, making it so that I don't need to carry around an additional device. It's got a voice recorder, GPS for on the road, map system, calculator, unit conversion index, portable scanner, ruler and so on... What used to require you to carry around a dozen different devices, planners and calendars is now all done by a 5 inch screen fitting in my pocket.

You're right in the sense that some people kind of overdo it and use it as a crutch to share everything with everyone at all times, but smartphones can be very useful.

Yeah, for whatever reason I read it as "after using an iPhone, Android would feel sluggish now". Not sure how I gathered that, but I should've looked twice before writing that response, lol.

I wish. My OPO's battery and charging were pretty shot. Just using it to browse the web drained it very quickly and it charged poorly. I legit got the message "charging rapidly - 37 DAYS remaining until full" once. If I had it plugged in and charging while the phone was on, it would sometimes drain battery faster than it would charge. Sometimes I'd go to bed with it "charging" at 30% and I'd wake up to it having dropped to 10% while plugged into the wall. This was partially my fault for being one of the earliest adopters when it was in its first stages and assuming I could fix most issues by myself, but still. Glad to have a new one after 3 years.

One plus really has come a long way. The two was kind of a step back, that's why I'm back on the htc.

I constantly had problems with the fingerprint reader on the two, it would work for three days and then I'd have to clear out my fingerprints and it would work again for another three days. Plus that screen was pretty ass.

Got it for my early christmas present after my S4 Mini crapped out one day and couldn't reboot.

Damn, that does sound shitty. The 3T's fingerprint sensor works great. Tried it from every angle and part of my thumb and it recognizes it instantly.

When it worked it worked awesome, it just decided not to do its job occasionally.

I can see the usages for it. It applies to location. Useful in the city. Less so out here.

Where I live there aren't enough towers to broadcast the signals between populations resulting in large communication deadzones. Anything to do with weather and climate, I learned about wind direction and cloud types and packed the right gear with me at all times. For work, most of the jobs up here aren't so heavy on the paperwork or timing changes.

And I know some of what you listed comes down to personal lifestyle. I woke up on my own or when the sun rose. I moved around enough that it was difficult to ever really be bored with the exception of winters. Always used to cooking my own food. Catching up with the news happened after work at the day's end.

Different lifestyles, different needs.

Sure thing. I'm not telling you to get one either, I just think you're a little quick to dismiss it as just another trend. It's as well adopted as the internet and a real necessity for many of us. You might not need or even want a mobile phone, but using one is far from jumping on the bandwagon at this point.

iPhone SE, because when it was time to replace my 5 I didn't want one of the fuckhueg iPhone 6s. I like it well enough.

Getting real sick of Apple's shit though, and I probably won't buy another Apple phone if they continue to suck.
I like the iPhones for their stability and consistent quality, but the Android freedom and flexibility is really making it almost impossible for me to go back. The customization is just too good. Custom launchers and desktops like Nova with hundreds of possibilities and features for your screens, adblockers on your phone, customizable gestures allowing you to do pretty much anything by just sweeping across your screen, custom lockscreens and widgets on them, apps like Tasker letting you create extensive macros (f.e: as soon as your phone recognizes your home wifi, it automatically goes off silent mode, blocks work calendar notifications, sends a message to your girlfriend saying you're home, and starts playing music through your home speakers), extreme conrol over battery usage with Greenify, full back-ups saving literally everything on your phone as it is for later recovery, custom ROMs, things like Dash Charging / removable batteries or storage, and so forth...

iPhones are really nice, but if you love tinkering and extreme versatility, Android is definitely the way to go.
