As we strive to have a single device that does it all, no mobile device can … yet. So many of us have found comfort in using multiple devices to get the job done. With every generation, though, mobile devices become more powerful and, likewise, more capable. And I, personally, have recently decided I want to trim down the number of devices I use each day.

Right now, I use one tablet and two smartphones daily: an iPhone 5, Galaxy Note II and a third-generation iPad. This is a step down from just a few months ago where, like in the picture above, I used two or three phones and two tablets every day. But I'm looking to cut that back even further, likely to one phone and a single, mid-sized tablet with 4G connectivity.

Tell me, readers, how many devices you use on a daily basis. Do you wish you used more? Less? Place your vote in our poll below and tell us in the comments what your ideal setup would be.

Anthony Bailey
Anthony Bailey I'm not sure why anyone would need to use more than one mobile device in 2013, considering how advanced so many devices are. Anyone using more than one mobile device (outside of a work/home situation) is just looking for attention. My Samsung Galaxy Note 2 does everything I could ever need and then some.
