If you are looking to upgrade your cell phone you need to educate yourself about the options now available to you.
As of this writing, the latest and newest technology lies in smartphones operating on the iPhone and Android platforms. Among them is the iPhone 4 and a myriad of Android 2.2 based phones, such as the HTC Incredible, Motorola Droid 2 and Droid X and the LG Ally. There is very little performance difference among these top tier phones, so it really comes down to how they feel in your hand and fit in your pocket. Then there are Blackberry devices and texting phones for those who aren’t keen on all the bells and whistles.
Read and read and read reviews. CNET is a good place to start, as they are very thorough and offer comment -like user reviews that can help assist you in evaluating devices. PureMobile.com is another. They are almost always at the top of the search engine results when you type in phone reviews.
Finally, rounding out the top three is Mobiledia.com. They usually are more on top of new developments than the other two and they offer a great email newsletter service that doesn’t clutter up your inbox all that much and which is very informative.
At the end of the day, the kind of phone you get really depends on you. There is nothing any reviewer can tell you that you shouldn’t experience yourself. Go down to the Verizon, T-Mobile, AT&T or Sprint store and check out the models themselves. Once you do that and do your research, go online to find the best deal. Often times Internet deals are better than in-store deals.
