Definition: cellphones vs. smartphones

All smartphones are cellphones, but not all cellphones are smartphones. To qualify as a smartphone today, the device must have at least a three-inch touchscreen and be able to download apps from an online store. With so-called "feature" phones, users have a limited choice of apps; however, iPhones, Androids and Windows Phones have a huge selection. See smartphone, cellphone and feature phone.
