Mobile phones are one of the fastest growing technological industries in the world and over the next few years it is going to get bigger and better as technology improves and the market becomes more crowded and more competitive. There’s never been a better time to start investing in these goods, as whoever wins the battle for the best mobile phone, the consumer wins either way!
Smart phones are the most in vogue mobile out there now. They are great to look at and have so many features you could never run out of things to use it for. But if you’re new to the smart phone market, it can be difficult to decide which brand to go with. It can depend on what you are used to before turning to smart phones, and how easily you can adjust to the new technology. It also depends on what you are using your phone for. Here are a few things to consider that might help you make up your mind.
Work or Personal?
This is something that could mean the difference between which phone you get. If you’re looking for a phone that has good internet links and will be used for basic things like calls, texts and emails, there’s no need to get a phone that is filled with features that you won’t use. However, if your phone is going to be used for business, the more features the better. Think about what you will need for your phone and when you shop around, ask questions and find what’s best for you.
Touchscreen over Keypad
If you’ve always used a keypad on your phone, you may want to consider sticking to it. It might make the difference between buying an iPhone (who use touchscreens) and a Blackberry (who have a keypad). Again, it all depends on what you’re used to and what you feel will be better for your ease of use.
Payment Plans and Insurance
It doesn’t matter if you have the best phone in the world or the worst, what matters is that you can afford it! Take a look around in stores and online, as there are a multitude of different offers that differ in price and some phones come with free gifts and offers (like Orange Wednesdays – the cinema offer that Orange phones have). You should also consider getting some mobile phone insurance to make sure you are covered is you lose or damage your phone or your phone is stolen.
