My desktop computer is still the most comfortable and also more efficient device for searches, as I can sit at a desk, and take notes as well. I have a system with NotePad as well.
I find the phone a little clumsy at times, but yes, agreed, I find myself using it more too, but because of cost however, I am on a package that doesn’t include data, i.e. I only do searches with WiFi at home. The clumsy part is that I have to fiddle around with enlarging photos, and it’s just not the same with YouTube as well. I’m getting more experienced at using it, but am still more comfortable with my desktop computer. Not only of the computer, but the total search package consisting of computer on a desk with Notepad on the computer and also hard copy notepad, pen and pencil. I like to write down key words from time to time, just to be able to refer back to it some times.
I still find myself using more the phone just for pure necessity but I am expecting to check a new laptop and see if I can use more to do the majority of the tasks. I can see in the future maybe a combination of both and even the phone becoming more and more powerful and manage everything
As of now some companies have made their own apps so that people can work from home using their mobile. They also keep track of the employees using their app. Most companies still require people to use laptop or desktop, but we can expect them to shift to mobile based apps in the future.
