What are your smartphone bothersome things?

There are things that frustrate us smartphone users and the guys at the 361 Degrees podcast focused on several in their latest episode.
Written by Matthew Miller, Contributing Writer on

I am a podcast junkie and enjoy listening to them as I run on the roads around my neighborhood. One of the newest podcasts I subscribed to is co-hosted by my good friend Rafe Blandford from All About Symbian and is called 361 Degrees. As I ran last night I listened to the latest podcast, episode 10, and thought I would ask my readers what they thought were their most bothersome things with smartphone platforms.

The 361 Degrees podcast features Ewan MacLeod from Mobile Industry Review and Ben Smith from Wireless Worker in addition to Rafe and is a great listen for all of you interested in the mobile space. The bothersome things they discussed were:

  • WiFi hotspots
  • MMS incompatibilities
  • Battery life
  • Mobile apps requiring constant connectivity
  • Context sensitive ringing

I have to agree with these and say that the more phones I use the more miserable battery life on smartphones is moving to the top of my list of frustrations. Android and Windows Phone 7 devices suck at battery life and this fact has me using Symbian and BlackBerry devices more and more today. I would use an iPhone, it has great battery life too, if it was on T-Mobile and when the iPhone 5 is launched I may be adding a carrier that supports it to get one.

What are your bothersome things and which one is the most frustrating for you?
