Smart Phones Fill All Needs

By: Cecily | Posted: 23rd May 2011

Nowadays touch screen technology is incorporated into numerous smart phone models. That is just one of the many features that you will have to wade through as you go through the selection process for buying your new phone. Almost everyone in the world has some kind of cellphone whether they are old or young, rich or poor. But fewer and fewer are using those phones just for talking anymore. But just what criteria should you use when trying to pick just one?

Mobile manufactures are constantly surprising with new features and technology. It would seem as though smart phones can do just about anything you can imagine. And in some cases even things you never imagined possible with a phone. So where to start when narrowing down which model is right for you? The best place to start would be to first decide what you really need to use the phone for, is it for business or for your own enjoyment, is it about style or function? The next step is to research the many service plans offered in your area. Some might give you better rates for calls, others might give you larger data packages, and others may discount calls you make to friends and family? Some mobile service providers even offer free or reduced cost phones for signing a 1-2 year contract with them. Once you have chosen a service provider that will further reduce the field to specific models that are made for that provider. Most mobile manufactures produce different models for each provider.

Then comes the question of budget, smart phones not only come in a range of models but each one meets a different price point. These all depend on which features you really want and need. Touch phones tend to offer bigger screens, which is key if you enjoy watching movies or reading books and email.

Each smart phone runs on its own proprietary operating system. These systems usually have their own built in “app” stores by which the user can down load one of the hundreds of thousands of applications to enhance there phone and customize it to meet their needs. These applications work in conjunction with the smart phones already existing features like a camera, GPS system multimedia player or Wifi. The phone use various methods to transfer data, some use a USB cable to connect to your computer, in addition to Wifi, 3G, or Bluetooth modes. Cell phone manufactures like Nokia, LG, HTC, and BlackBerry introduce new models regularly. They run on operating systems produced by Microsoft or Google like Windows Mobile and Android. Apple is unique in that it only produces one model of phone per generation only differing in its storage size, and running its own iOS operating system. Many of these companies offer similar features so it’s up to you to test each to see which one is right for you. But at least you can be sure that there are more than enough excellent choices to choose from.
