Choosing a smartphone

Callpod Inc.

Trying to decide which smartphone to buy and which way to purchase it is something that takes some consideration.  Maybe you have a cell phone already but are thinking about making the jump into the newer smartphones like the apple iphone or the htc thunderbolt.  The thing about getting a smartphone is that you are not just getting a regular phone you have to get a data plan too and it can be more expensive.

So what are some of the things that you are going to think about in making your decision.  For one, the price of the phone is an issue.  Smartphones are much more expensive than your regular cell phone.  You can get a cheap cell phone from your local grocery store and get a prepaid plan and make calls.  
Smartphones are usually a couple of hundred dollars and they can get really pricey.  A lot of people don’t want to get stuck in a cell phone plan for 2 years but if you want a smartphone you might have to take that route.  Otherwise you will have to pay a lot of money upfront for the phone and a lot of people don’t want to do that.  

What else can you compare when looking at a smartphone?  Battery life, operating system, phone features, and the applications that can run on a phone should all be things to look out for.  Now there are faster data networks like 4G which allow smartphone users to get access to faster data rates.     
It all comes down to what you like in a smartphone.  Do you like the design of the iphone more than the htc thunderbolt?  Do you want to use the android operating system or do you want to stick with apple and the app store? Either way upgrading to smartphone will give you access to much more on the go.  Mobile applications are being released all the time making everything from business apps to games available to the smartphone user.  So which ever device you choose you will be taking a big step up from a regular cell phone that only makes regular phone calls.
