Not everyone in the world uses smartphones, most likely because not everyone realizes exactly what a smartphone can do for them. Never fear though! The moment smartphones emerged, tech-savvy heroes came flocking in smartphoneville. Never again will you need to wonder if you are using your smartphone to its fullest extent.
Droiddog.com, for example, recently published a smartphone infographic that helps people understand the capabilities of their smartphones and how they can better use them. For those looking for more details, here are a few more nuggets of information about your precious smartphone:

Use Smartphone to Access the Convenient Zone
For anyone who belongs to the I-don’t-need-a-smartphone-to-get-through-the-day school of thought, think for a moment about finding a telephone number for a business. Now think about whether you would like to flip through the thick-heavy yellow pages or through the cluttered telephone book, or rush to the Internet and pull up all information in ten seconds. It’s not about how we made smartphones a necessity in our lives, but on how they certainly improve our standard of living.
Smartphones also let you have a great level of organization in your life. You can sync calendars and carry them around with you in your pocket. One of the best things about a smartphone is its portability. More portable than the checkbook, day planner or calendar combo, smartphones let you keep track of phone numbers, directions, locations, and schedules. Having your smartphone act as a secretary to keep track of all those things leaves you free to focus on bigger things.

Smartphone: Your Portable Hero
One special nice feature of a smartphone is its almost instantaneous connection to help in case of an emergency. Without one, you have to resort to numbers you have memorized; with a smartphone, you can get in touch with emergency services, family, employers, and others.
Another great thing about smartphones is that they’re with you all the time; they’re practically an extension of yourself. If you’re rushing around getting ready for a flight out of town, you’re smartphone can tell you that the incoming snowstorm delayed the flight for two hours. You can always be reached, not only by phone calls, but by video, text, email, and many other ways.
Scratch the I-don’t-a-smartphone mentality. Nowadays, smartphones are a do-or-die necessity. They really do make life a heck of a lot easier.
