Types of Smartphones


The newest smartphones come with a variety of features including touchscreens, high-resolution displays, 4G/LTE connections, Wi-Fi connections, GPS navigation software, cameras with a variety of settings including panoramic mode and burst mode. Some even have fingerprint scanners to make it easier to lock your phone or make purchases without having to type in a password each time. The latest smartphones also have fast processors and enough storage capacity to store all your pictures, videos, songs and more without running out space. What does a smartphone do? A smartphone can be used as an alarm clock, calendar, calculator, voice recorder and more. There are also plenty of apps available to use on your phone such as Facebook and Instagram so you can keep up with friends from wherever you are. Plus they allow you access to email so that you’re always connected with family members and coworkers.


Which Smartphone should I buy? You should consider how much data per month will cost if there’s no unlimited data plan available through your carrier before making a decision on which device is best for you. If this information isn’t readily available when looking at potential devices then contact customer service to find out what the data charges will be like for each device.


What about security features? Security has been a big concern for those who carry their lives around in their pocket via smartphone. Newer phones offer better protection against viruses and malware because they run on newer operating systems, but security threats are constantly evolving so it’s important to update your device regularly.


What kind of screen size is right for me? Screen size varies depending on personal preference, but many consumers feel comfortable with 5-inch screens. However, those who love watching TV shows or movies might want something larger than 5 inches while people who primarily want their phone to serve as a messaging device may want something smaller than 5 inches. Other things to consider when picking screen size include hands free talking options and viewing photos outdoors during daylight hours. Generally speaking, bigger screens let you see more content on one page, which makes them ideal for reading eBooks and web pages with lots of text. They are not usually as good as smaller screens at displaying images with lots of detail, though. As well, browsing internet sites designed for a desktop computer can require scrolling side-to-side across the screen (rather than just vertically). Finally, if you have poor eyesight or need reading glasses to read close objects such as books then you’ll probably want to get a phone with large enough display so that everything is easy to see.
