So you’re buying a phone – and you’re definitely spoilt for choice these days. With hundreds of phones from all ends of the market flooding the market, even after screening out phones outside your price range, there’s still a lot of phones to choose from. Here are a few tips that should apply to any mobile phone user when choosing their phone.
1. SMSing and email.
Let’s start with the most obvious feature that any phone should have: simple text messaging. Email is included in most phones these days, although not strictly necessary; I never use my phone for emailing. But if you’re a heavy user, you’ll probably want this on your phone.
2. Speakerphone and headset.
I once decided against buying a phone because of the lack of speakerphone. If you’re doing something that requires both your hands, speakerphone is a great option for comfortably carrying on a long phone conversation. In the same vein, if your phone can use Bluetooth headsets, it makes conversations much easier.
Every mobile phone user has little tasks that they wouldn’t mind their phones doing. What sort of accessories do your different choices have available?
