recently i have been debating the 'smartphone' title because company's such as '3' and 'orange' are classing 'smartphones' as a phone which is on a contract of some sort. The Samsung S5600 is apparently a 'smartphone' according to '3', but i would say its far from it. '3' have put it on a £13 a month contract, so because its on a contract, its a 'smartphone' of course.

 

NO, its not. Its '3's way of 'flogging' phones on a horrible contract. Now people i have asked class a 'smartphone' as a phone that can multi-task. Well some iphones still being used dont multi-task, but i would consider them to be smartphones. 

 

in fact i would class a smartphone to be a phone running a 'smart' OS such as iOS, Android, blackberry OS and Symbian.

 

Im always changing my phone so i was wondering peoples opinions on, what is a smartphone?

I think it is a smartphone if you have the ability to download and run apps

A smartphone is a mobile phone that offers more advanced computing ability and connectivity than a contemporary basic feature phone.
