Smart phones are very expensive, even when purchased under a subsidized contract from your telephone company. The choice you make is very important. You can not easily change it later.
Most telephone contracts are executed for 24 months, which means that the phone must be paid during that time, in addition to the charges you receive for using it. The telephone company, and in fact also telephone manufacturers, expect a phone to be used for about two years before it is replaced. Only two years? Some contracts allow the replacement of the telephone (exchange for a new telephone) every 12 months. Why would anyone even consider this?
The technology used in smart phones (camera, processor, screen quality, compilation, etc.) changes rapidly. You could postpone the purchase of a phone, always waiting for the next NEXT device to arrive. But, you have to make a choice. So, here are some tips.
First, your phone choice may be limited by your mobile phone provider. In some countries, the telephone company may use a radio spectrum that is only compatible with a small range of phones. Then you need to verify if this applies to you. In the USA UU., For example, not all phones work with all operators or in all cities. If you want to change providers, you may need to change your phone as well. In the United Kingdom, all smartphones work with all operators in 3G, but the newer 4G LTE networks are VERY selective. And the US 4G network phones. UU They do not work in the 4G network in the United Kingdom.
Second, you must decide which phone operating system you prefer. This is mainly due to your personal choice, which can be useful by visiting a phone store and testing several phones, or by reading reviews of several phones. The main options are: Apple iOS, Android, Windows Phone 8 and Blackberry. Generally speaking, you can move your contacts and other data from one iOS phone to another, from one Android phone to another, and so on. Moving between operating systems is much more difficult. And you’ll do it every two years, so it’s not trivial. You want to know that your favorite manufacturer will continue to exist in two years! The functionality of iOS and Android is more or less the same.
There are two main market leaders in the world of smartphones: Apple and Samsung. Users love the way Apple’s iPhone works and how it integrates so well into Apple’s way of doing things.
Samsung is the largest smartphone manufacturer in the world. It uses the Android operating system on their phones, like many other manufacturers, but it is the most successful of Android phone manufacturers. Samsung manufactures a range of devices (currently under the name Galaxy) as the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Mega 5.8.
My recommendation is to buy an iPhone or an Android phone, probably a Samsung. Windows Phone 8 and Blackberry are far behind in the market and may not have much future.
You should also consider what phone size is best for you. What do I mean by the size? In short, it has to do with the dimensions of the screen. Apple’s iPhone 5S is about four inches from corner to corner. The Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 has an approximate size of 6.3 inches (check the name!) The bigger the screen, the bigger the phone and the more handful it can be. If you plan on using your smartphone a lot, you should feel comfortable with its size. Try the one that interests you. Does it fit in your hand? Can you make calls easily with him? Do you feel comfortable keeping it for long periods? Does it fit in your pocket or purse?
Therefore, for a “normal” phone, you can choose an iPhone or a Galaxy S4. If you want a larger screen, you may want to check the larger screen Samsung phones, since Apple does not manufacture the larger ones.
Only one last point. All smartphones need continuous access to the Internet, either through the telephone service or via Wi-Fi. You must ensure that your phone contract provides bandwidth to allow this, or that you regularly use your smartphone near Wi-Fi hotspots.
