Not surprising considering it's a smartphone survey! but damn, social media comes ahead of music and games!

I'm surprised texting isn't higher. These stats just seem a bit off to me.

Camera so low? What about Instagram and other filter adding (cr)apps that all wannabe photographers use?

it will still be low.. those things you mentioned are not the actual camera process whereby you are snapping a picture..

you only take about 2 sec to snap a picture, with about 5 sec before that to adjusting angle/pose, and 5 minutes after that spent on post processing in built in editor/other apps..

so yeah, out of 5minutes, you only spent 10 seconds with the "real" camera app.. :)

This is not accurate worldwide. It's a UK thingy and I bet it's only in London or something. There should be a worldwide survey lasting a few days

That comes to about 2 hr 8 minutes a day on average. That's about 15 hours per week. That is a lot of entertain on a smartphone.

Seeing smart phones pretty much killed PDA devices, it's not surprising. For people like myself who work in a business environment, I use mine more for meetings and collecting notes/data than an actual phone. Streaming music while driving to and from work gets a lot of usage as well.
