I think you won’t argue if I say that modern generation can’t handle this world without smartphones. I don’t think that in future we will stop using mobile technologies. So, today everyone needs to go in step with new technologies. And today I will tell you how to make the very first step – how to choose a smartphone.
Semi-step 1. Budget
Smartphones differ in their cost greatly. The times passed when they cost too much that only very rich people could afford them. But I think it is clear that the more functions the phone has, the more advanced it is, the younger it is, the higher price will be.
But the basic package of functions remains the same, so you just need to decide how much you are ready to spend for becoming mobile.
Semi-step 2. Operating system
There are several most influential mobile OS in the world: Android from Google, iOS from Apple, Windows Phone from Microsoft, Blackberry from RIM.
Of course, they differ in codes, but for users the most important aspects are layouts and the number of apps available. Speaking about the first point, Android is the best of all. It allows lots of ways of customization. However, iOS and Blackberry won’t disappoint you as well. Number of applications? iOS and Android are the leaders. But you may find all the necessary apps for other platforms as well. Just make a little research.
Semi-step 3. Display and size
You should choose a smart depending on your needs. Do you need a big screen for book reading? A screen with high resolution for video streaming? A good music system if you are a music geek? Everything is possible.
Semi-step 4. Battery
Unfortunately, it remains to be a weak side of the smartphones. The more functions it has, the less work time is available. But it you may read here about how to improve them.
Semi-step 5. Keyboard and camera
There are 3 variants to choose from: just a touch QWERTY keyboard (like iPhone), just a physical QWERTY keyboard (Blackberry phones) or a combination of them (like Samsung Galaxy 5110).
What concern cameras, modern smartphone usually have cameras of 5 MP and more. But there are also variants. If you are keen on photography, you should choose for example one of the recent Nokia phones.
Semi-step 6. Updates
When I spoke about OSes I forgot to mention that even though the phones that run some OSes are still sold, not all of the systems have the future. For example, Symbian phones. They work well now, but unfortunately, there time will expire soon.
So, find out about the frequency of updates. Android and iOS are updated very regularly, but there are also some exceptions. New OS from Windows has just been released.
And after making these small steps, just read the reviews and opinions about the phone you have chosen. Try to go to test it in the store. And you will make your smartphone choice easily.
