The survey found that only 18 percent of smartphone buyers claim to have been swayed to purchase a smartphone due to app functionality. Most went for smartphones because they offered better hardware and more functionality. However, despite this some 65 percent smartphone users download and use apps on a regular basis.

Users also appear to be ditching specialized gadgets such as MP3 players or standalone GPS devices in favor of smartphones.
