    Handhelds are more power than ever before, but are they conducive to actual work?

    Not any real work but more for communication which is really useful for being able to respond and keep on top of things while on the move. Feels like work is 20% real work and 80% responding to crap anyway so I find phones indispensable for work now.

    Close to zero.
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    Re: QOTW: How much work do you get done on mobile devices?

    If i was in a job that suddenly required me to do some of my work on a phone, they would soon be looking on another person to fill my job.
    Personally i feel ( so don't get angry ) that anyone that look at a phone for more than 20 minutes a day are sick and need help.
    I look / touch my phone less than 5 minutes every day,,,,,,,, and i feel that's too much and i die a little every minute, but do keep in mind i am a avid phone hater.

    Having a proper job i am not sitting on my backside, i actually produce something a real product so i have little chance or any need to constantly be on a phone computer or tablet.
    Why is it usually assumed that most people work in an office enviroment when most working people have no need to be on a phone computer or tablet to do work.

    Technicaly I do work with my phone, using it to call and send text and images to workers on the field, but that's all I don't activelly work on my phone, all the technical side of things is done in a windows 10 computer.

    On a mobile phone, none.

    On a tablet, a tiny, tiny amount, amounting to web browsing research and document downloads .... occasionally.

    Any other mobile devices, none.

    So it's hard to quantify but I'd say 0.1%, at the absolute most.

    Phoning people is part of work so I guess that counts. Other than that, nothing apart from a few badly typed emails. Just way to small screen and keyboard to be of any use for spreadsheets or CAD or word docs.

    My phone - so I can surf during my lunch break and, y'know, phone folk.

    My laptop - to surf on lazy mornings in bed or for a spot of gaming when stuck in a Premier Travelodge, and occasionally fill in when my main rig is in bits/being fixed/upgraded/tinkered with.

    My Tablet - hasn't seen daylight in over a year.

    so...

    None.

    Depends what you mean by work. I used it for communicating with clients by voice and/or text. I also use it for reading documents and where necessary taking tech photos either for myself or part of my client work.

    Not a single thing. Mobile devices (phone & tablet) for personal use only. When I need to do "work" it's when I'm at work on their PC or at home doing work related personal development stuff on my PC.
