You're are likely using a smartphone because that's what is popular, especially if you're in the age catergory of 14 to 40 years. Featurephone users are few nowadays though the age bracket is pretty close to Smartphone users usually from 14 to 60 years anything more or less can do.

Feature phones

This are phones manufactured with a focus of assisting users just like a personal digital assistant PDA. Feature phones run on Java platform and can perform many tasks which Dumbphones can't.
They've many functions like browsing, playing games and downloading some third party applications since it's Java enabled. Example of a feature is Nokia x2-00 and other Nokia S60 series.

Telephone Dumbphones


Imagine when a phone like Nokia 3310 was considered the rave of the moment? Well now it has assumed the status of "dumpphones". Just like the name dumphones are phones which can't browse, and can't accept third party applications. They are produced specifically for making voice calls and sending text messages.

Smartphones are high-end phones that usually runs on Windows, Android and Apple OS. It can perform some functions the other two can not like multi-tasking etc. Example are iPhones
