Mobile recycling could allow consumers to upgrade.

Consumers hoping to make use of applications on a new device could consider selling an old mobile phone for cash with Envirofone.

Nokia Conversations blog surveyed more than 1,000 customers with the intention of discovering what apps are the most popular with users of its smartphones.

The poll revealed the variety of apps now available and could tempt some people into making an upgrade.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, communications and social networking apps took the top two spots with 26 per cent and 22 per cent of the vote respectively.

Fans of social networking could opt for a new Nokia handset such as the N8 in order to keep in touch with friends and family while on the move.

The finding may highlight though how far mobile phones have progressed in recent years as it is now possible to do far more than just make voice calls and send text messages, as a whole host of games are also included.

The blog states: "We think it's safe to say that gaming has come a long way since the loveable Snake."
