Should you get a smartphone?

Mobile phones have revolutionised the way we communicate and interact with one another. They have dramatically transformed our lives. However, they are forever changing and it can be hard to keep up with the latest handset and technology trends.

Smartphones are now a must have gadget and the essential pocket device which gives users the chance to shop, browse, surf, connect, email and share things online. If you are considering a switch from an old handset to one of the latest smartphone devices, it could be well worth doing.

Benefits of a smartphone

There are a number of benefits to having a smartphone, which you might have considered beforehand. You have the option to take better photos for a start with a high megapixel camera; share this image with friends either through messages or online. You can also stream music, films, TV shows and online video audio books, podcasts, radio stations as well as download them.

A smartphone gives you access to app stores which allow for a range of different ways to use your phone. These include keeping track of your running distances to reading the latest fiction novel.


High-tech mobile phones can cost hundreds of pounds if you buy them outright.  However, if you don’t have a few hundred pounds spare, you could still own the latest handset by taking out a contract with a mobile phone provider.

For example, you could take out a 24-month tariff and pay a monthly fee which would include costs towards the handset.
