From high-resolution displays to powerful processors, our smartphones are more capable than ever before. However, there’s something that oftentimes gets overlooked: the ability to make phone calls.
It makes sense for people to ignore a smartphone’s ability to make phone calls. After all, messaging platforms like Messenger, WhatsApp, and others make it easier and cheaper to communicate with others living in different regions around the world.

That brings us to this week’s poll: how often do you make phone calls? For me, there’s still something to be said about hearing someone else and having a proper back-and-forth conversation.
However, I can’t ignore the convenience of something like WhatsApp. The messaging platform has allowed me to communicate with relatives over 2,500 miles away (that’s 4,023 kilometers for my international peeps).
