Poll results: How many smartphones do you use?

Have smartphones become so ubiquitous that people now use two or more? Or do most people use just one? The results of our recent poll tell us that…

…48 percent of the people who participated use one smartphone.

Generally speaking, one smartphone is enough for most people. After all, smartphones are used for calling, texting, emailing, browsing, playing apps and games and more. Performing these everyday tasks on multiple devices isn’t necessary unless you have additional specific needs.

Naturally, if you find yourself requiring more than one phone, you’ll add a second device, which is what 33 percent chose of those surveyed.

And believe it or not, there are plenty of people out there who now regularly use more than two smartphones–17 percent, to be precise.

That’s not all. If you look at the comments section in our original poll story, you’ll see a wide spectrum of devices that people use regularly for various reasons. Those include using devices just for music/photos or as testers for the Windows 10 Mobile developer preview.

Scoring last in our poll–3 percent–was the “none” option. Presumably, these are folks who use a feature phone to make phone calls, or use different methods entirely to communicate.

While we expected the order to be what we see above, we were surprised by the percentages. We thought a higher percentage of readers would use one smartphone and a lower percentage would own more than two.

Are you surprised by the results? How many phones do you use? Share your thoughts with us below.
