Choosing a Phone

To choose a new handset is not the hardest thing in the world to do, but as so many people struggle to do so , here's a couple of tips.

!-Go to a phone retailer and play with a couple

2- write a list of requirements on a piece of paper and use Google to find handsets that fulfill the requirements.

3- Visit independent tech websites to read reviews, NOT Apple, Nokia, Samung, HTC, Android help sites, as you will get a pejudiced view, as EVERY handset EVER made can have and does have issue's, so the people you see on them will have an axe to grind ?

4-Make up your own mind, what someone else thinks has no relivance what so ever, they don't live your life and will very probably have different needs to the ones you have.

5- don't buy a smart phone if you can't get access to data, it's pointless !!

Re: Choosing a Phone

One of the best ways to choose a phone is to have one that screens phones according to your desires like brands, OS, pricing, etc. You guys can use the advanced search option in GSMArena. You put in your requirements for phones like flash, screen size, price range etc. See for yourself!
