I usually, use more my smartphone to go online. But sometimes I use my laptop to go too, I think this two devices are easier to carry in a bag, for example.

I prefer using a laptop and a smartphone to go online, because of the size of these devices. It's very convinient to carry the smartphone in your pocket or even the laptop. I don't have a desktop, because it needs more space and the price of it is high. If in the future I need bigger device than I have now, I'll definitely purchase a desktop.

All the people in the world use new technology with devices like smartphones, laptops, tablets, and desktop computers. And I use to go online on my smart phone and I use my old computer. I don't use my tablet because it has broken. Generally, I think those devices are really useful to everyone who wants to go ahead with new technology.

Unlike the others, I spend the most of my internet with my laptop, then comes my mobile phone and at the last place is my tablet. I use my internet for tablet almost never. And I don't use internet with the desktop computer because I simply don't have it. I use my laptop instead of it. Additionally it's portable and I can use it anywhere (if it's charged :D). It's a big advantage for me.

Of course i use my smartphone to go online. Here is a writing about people's preferred devices for going online. People were asked about their preffered devices for accessing the internet. This pie chart show the information how people prefer to access the internet with their devices. The devices are shown in red, blue, green and purple.

When I wanna go online, I need to ask mom to open tablet. Because she locks the password until I've done the homework she makes for me. My life is that, does anyone has a mom like me?

In terms of the survey, I believe people really need a new gadget which can be used as cellphone and laptop. People are more comfortable with laptops but cellphones are easier to carry and more accessible. Maybe in 2020

Smartphone received a higher percentage because of its accessibility, wide and easy use. Almost all people now have their own phones.
