Samsung's smartphone's that came out before android had numerous problems, and it's not their stupid phones that have made them a global leader in the cellular arena.
A smartphone primary function for me is that of a pocket sized laptop. Why you would think its to communicate is beyond me. The ability to remote into my PC from my phone, email myself a document, take credit card payments for work I have done without a bulky POS terminal, instantly upload pictures to the web, translate voice to and from hundreds of languages in real time, etc.. are priceless to me. Keep living in your cave, smartphones are only good for making fart sounds.
As to calling yourself a tech junkie and a geek, while not owning a smartphone because of the principle that you don't need a million apps, or Facebook or twitter. This makes you either ignorant, or a liar, which is it?
p.s. you're weak trolling can't hold a candle to these flames.
