Buying a smartphone can be a bit confusing today. There are different models, different brands, different prices and different users and sometimes you only know if a mobile phone is good for you after using it. But of course no one has time and money to try them all, so take a look at our guide and find the right smartphone for you!
- If you're not into apps and prefer a more traditional type of device without having to refuse to the advantages of a smartphone, then your perfect phone is a Blackberry. Since it's one of the first smartphones in the market you can even find them at a better price by buying them second hand through your local free-classifieds site. Blackberry smartphones are perfect for business, writing emails and browsing the Web.
- If you are more into technology and want a smartphone that you can customize for your needs, then choose an Android mobile device. The Android operating system is available on a large range of devices produced by different brands. Based on a Google platform, Android phones may be a little difficult to understand in the beginning, but are very powerful and guarantee high performances on every device. Look for Samsung Galaxy S4 if you want a high-tech smartphone or Desire 200 by HTC for a cheap, but efficient mobile device.
- iPhone is one of the best-selling mobile phones all around the world. With a very clear interface, iPhone is very easy to use and is perfect for those who are not very tech-savvy. The App store offers tons of apps available allowing you to do anything you want with your phone, although some of the apps that are traditionally free for Android have a small cost for iPhone users. Unlike Blackberries, iPhone is not a very good option to buy second hand.
- If you like Windows operating system, you can find Windows 8 runs on Windows mobile devices like Nokia Lumia. These are the perfect choice for those who need a smartphone with a modern interface for work, to write documents and spreadsheets, at a very competitive price.But before you invest in a Windows Mobile phone, consider browsing through forums and checking out the pros and cons of the specific models that you're interested in, since some users are not very happy with its performance.
