The results of this survey confirm what appears to be happening
Making a call is now only the sixth most common use for a mobile phone, a study has found.
Sending and receiving text messages, reading emails, browsing the internet and using the phone‚Äôs alarm clock have all overtaken actual conversation.
In fact, almost four in ten smartphone users believe they would manage without a call function on their handset at all.
The study, by taxi app Hailo, found the average person uses their mobile phone for an hour and 52 minutes a day.
