Choosing the Perfect Mobile Phone or Mobile Broadband Deal

By: Matt Sharp

It can be minefield out there, trying to pick the perfect phone. So, let me help you make the decision. Let me help you get it clear, in your head, exactly what you want from a phone, and therefore, what will be the perfect phone for you.

First up, you have to ask yourself: what is you want from your phone? Do you want a camera phone, to snap away for hours? Or do you want a music phone, to replace your mp3 player? Or maybe you want a smartphone, a phone that will do everything except give you a back rub after a hard day's work? Or maybe, just maybe, you want a simple, basic phone, that will just give you the calls and texts you need, without all the frills anbd frivolous bits you don't need!

So, once you've decided exactly why you want a mobile phone, then you need to sit down and think about what spec you're looking at. It's all well and good saying, 'I want a camera phone,' and then going out and buying the first one you see. You need to compare costs versus features. So, if you want a camera phone, you have to think, 'Do I want a top-end 5 megapixel phone, to get photos as good as my digital camera, or will a cheaper 3 megapixel camera phone do?'

Likewise, if you're looking at buying a music phone, you need to stop and think before wading in with your wallet out. Ask yourself whether you want to entirely replace your mp3 player, and if so, check out different phones. Do you want to get one that has masses of built in memory, or is that too big a phone (that is, you don't have enough music to fill it), and if so, will a cheaper phone that uses memory cards do? With smartphones, it's slightly more complicated. Because they're so packed with features, it's hard to choose between them... but then, if you're in the market for a smartphone, you probably know exactly what you want!

Once you've decided exactly what spec you want your new mobile phone to be, then it's time to budget for it. Set yourself a price range, and stick to it! Find a phone that does what you want within your price range. There are a wealth of mobile phones out there, and even mobile broadband, but once you narrow your search down to what you realy want, and what you can afford, you'll find it gets a lot easier!
