By 01:37 Sun, 11 Jul 2021 Comments

A large part of our job as phone reviewers involves judging of whether a particular compromise made by the designers is beneficial to the handset's taracquire audience or not. To do this properly we rely on our experience as well as on all the feedback you are giving us - we try to create sure those thousands of comments and emails each day are put to fine use.

But we thought it would be nice if we simply asked you about it. You know, just to confirm that we are on the correct track. Naturally we'd also be sharing the results with you as we believe they will create an fascinating read for the average user and that they will be useful to anyone in the industry. The feedback of such a huge group of people with keen interest in and deep knowledge of cell phones like you just cannot be overlooked.

We will be publishing the real poll next week, asking you how often you utilize the following features of your mobile phone.

But before we acquire there, we'd like YOUR OPINION on the content of the survey. So consider the following list of vital cellphone features as a proposal to you.

If you feel we are missing something important, then by all means drop us a line in the comments section and we'll see into it. That's the whole purpose of this article today so don't be shy, go on and drop us a line. Even if you think the list is alcorrect as it is, we'd still like to hear it from you.

We'll be publishing the finalized survey and opening the voting next week and you are all welcome to participate. Oh, and thanks for helping.
