You ever text on your phone? Watch movies on your phone? Browse the internet on your phone? Why not just use your phone as, you know, a phone?

None of those activities distract everyone around you.

Movies don't, but facetime does? How does that work?

Same thing. If I take a video of my friend while talking to them, it is all the same actions as doing a video chat.

You know the opinion is not unpopular and that's why you chose to make the title clickbait instead the actual opinion, right?

Speakerphone is more annoying to me than FaceTime. If my in laws make a phone call, it's on speaker. When I worked in call centers my least favorite customers to deal with were the ones that kept their phone on speaker. Half the time I could hear other people's conversations better than the person I was trying to talk to. Also most popular phones haven't even had a headphone jack for like, 5 years now. Acceptable-quality wireless earbuds are pretty cheap, though.

I think the better title would be "People Need To Be More Discrete With Their Phone Usage In Public", since thats the general sentiment i'm getting here. Agree 100% though. Feels like every time I go into the city anymore I spot at least one person doing this.

It's more a thing with younger people. I'm 43 and still quite tech savvy, but I dislike FaceTime calling. I just call. That's enough. But my 9y old son uses FaceTime as standard.
