It’s official! The mobile phone has become a fashion accessory whether we like it or not. Despite the fact that most folks only use their cell phone to make calls and send text messages, many still opt for the all singing all dancing high prided models for no other reason than they’re ‘in’. They’re the latest talking point and the envy of all your friends. On top of all that, they look good.
The cosmetic appearance of the modern mobile has become a designer’s nightmare, as they all compete to bring out the best shape, colours and designs. Phone companies are on a runaway train and if they dare to stop off along the way, they run the risk of losing their market share to their nearest rivals.
Before mobile phones became hot fashion accessories, it was cameras that adorned the necks of the happy snappers which were considered the coolest status symbol. Whoever had the biggest and best, the longest lens, and a book full of perfect pics, was considered to be the man or woman about town. The mentality for cameras and photographic gadgetry was similar to what we now see with mobile phones. By that I mean folks tend to wear them more than they use them. So may people had cameras that were so versatile and professional, yet they kept them on point-and-shoot mode at all times. Knowing how to use it wasn’t important, owning it was all that mattered.
So, when looking for the Best Mobile Phone, even if you like to sport the best and latest models, there are a few useful pointers which you may want to consider before making your next purchase.
Firstly, remember that the latest model is pensioned off at about 6 months old. This means, if you like it now, you’ll probably still like it when its been around a while and this is the perfect time to buy, as the prices can literally plummet.
Some models look the same yet one has more features than the other. You need to ask yourself if you really need those additional features, and if the answer is no, then you could save again. You still get to hold you best mobile phone and only you know it’s the feature-less not the feature-rich model. What the clever mobile phone buyer tries to do is get a good design which has enough features, and adequate performance to suit their individual needs.
Before you go shopping for the best mobile phone, write down what it is you use it for. If you’ve owned a mobile previously, this should be an easy task. When you know exactly which phone features you will make use of and which you won’t, you will be able to make an informed decision with you next purchase and won’t be influenced by the sales patter of the commission driven store rep.
My favorite way to buy a new mobile these days is to go online and shop. No stress, no hard sell and lots of reviews to look through. The purchase can then be made online or you can dash down to your local store to by your best mobile phone from there.
