The purpose of study is to advance current smartphone research past the limitation it faces being focused primarily on functional performance and to understand the causes of Smartphone diffusion. In order to do this, the dominant design concept was applied in examining the relationship between the determinants of the dominant design and the acceptance of smartphones. The research has yielded results which show that determinants such as technological superiority, number of installed based products, and availability of complementary goods have a positive effect on the intention to use smartphones and the attitude toward its use. Moreover, this study has contributed in broadening the understanding of dominant design by introducing the central concepts of dominant design which are not being dealt with in domestic studies and presenting the major variables which must be considered in the acceptance of smartphones.
