Though what I have has a touch screen, (unfortunately, I hate that thing) I don't think it counts as a smart phone. No apps, and if I ever decide to waste my minutes to mess around with the internet, its so clunky, (even more so than my ipod, which I consider to have clunky internet as well.) Not to mention it was only like thirty dollars at Meijers, so yeah, not a whole lot smart about this phone.
A lot of people seem to think the screens are too small to see anything on them for some reason. I use my phone for browsing the internet, reading books, watching movies, etc., without any problems. I realized one day that my dad had the same misconception, so I opened a movie on my phone for him and he was amazed at how good it looked (just a copy of the Lion King I made from my DVD of it). My phone has pretty much completely replaced my tablet.
It took a long time before I upgraded to a smartphone, but I finally realized I was thinking "man, it would be nice to be able to *blank* on my phone" a lot so I eventually caved. I use the extra features (GPS, internet, games, etc) a lot more than I thought I would.
Mine's a regular flip-phone, and some people find that hilarious, but I find it uproarious that they choose to spend someone's hard-earned money on a machine that does the full 9 yards, while I spend much less on a device that may not do as much, but still does what I expect it to do.
Call, text, tell time. That's all a phone needs to do.
I find a lot of features of Smartphones to be somewhat pointless. Especially Internet related stuff, because the screen is too small for that, there's a lot of scrolling around and stuff. If I want to use the Internet, I'll use a computer or maybe a tablet.
