    All of the above at various times and to various degrees. I'll add:
    Downloading films.
    Playing games.
    Exploring the workings of computers in themselves.
    We manage our heating and power from an app both on the computer and other devices.
    Keep track of all finance.
    Edit photos for fun.
    Store and collate all family photo's and videos.
    There'll be other stuff because the line between using the internet and using the computer is a bit vague.

    I'm in the process of writing a very long report on my computer - It has to be very detailed so it's going to take a long time. 10 hours so far and it's not even close to finished.

    Phones work well but, if you do a lot of typing, an Android tablet with a mouse and keyboard would be very useful.
    I use a Samsung Note 9 as a phone, but most of my internet time is done on this Samsung Tab S5e with keyboard cover and a bluetooth mouse.

    I use the phone and this tablet for presentations as both will connect to a projector when the occasion demands it.

    My computer is Windows 8.1, a pirate version as I was unable to buy a real one. I'd love to find a real licensed version but I can't get one anywhere.
    I refuse to use windows ten and will continue to do so until I absolutely have to.
