A few things stand out from the survey with respect to usage. Nine out of ten respondents have an iPhone, 8 of those being iPhone 6. This corresponds with relatively heavy usage -- heavy users want the most modern phones. Not surprisingly, the perception of Apple phones is the highest among all users, with Samsung a close second. Other brands had mixed perceptions, with Huawei and Motorola experiencing particularly poor perceptions.
Among the many potential uses for smartphones, games are the most popular by far. Other applications are closer in their usage, with phone being the least popular usage. Web browsing is the second least-popular usage for smartphones. Heavy smartphone users generally admit that they are dependent on their phones, even when they use them for a variety of purposes. Those...
There may also be evidence that those who use their phones less are more likely to have an older smartphone (the iPhone 5s and Galaxy 5S). No users reported having a low end phone, even if some reported that there were above average brands other than Apple -- there is a strong preference among heavy users for phones that they feel are the best.
Summary of Questions Used

sleep and electronics. In particular, this research paper aims to explore the possible effects of screen time on sleep, based on experiences from participants in a survey. Prior to conducting the survey, the hypothesis was 'more screen time equals less sleep time'. Surveys are a valid research method to help test hypotheses by collecting information in the form of responses from target populations. By asking if screen time (e.g.,
When unemployment is high, companies may decide to delay the release of their new updated phone as a means to maximize profit. By withholding the release of the phone, not only does demand build but the ability of more consumers to enter into the market to purchase the phone does occur. At this point, the profit maximization curve peaks earlier and is likely to have a prolonged parabola at
