Guest Post: What mobile phone will suit your needs and budget?

There are so many handsets in the market right now, choosing the right one for you can be a bit of a pain. The following is a bit of a insight into the different types of phones in the market right now.

Standard handsets

There are many people who think a phone should just be used to make phone calls. If this is you a basic handset is the phone for you. The very most these phones tend to offer the user is:

  • Making phone calls
  • Sending text messages
  • Alarm
  • Clock

These phones tend to be the cheapest in the market place and tend to be the sort that “does what it says on the tin” type phones.


The iPhone is one of the most popular phones in the market right now.  Every new design Apple brings out ensures that it remains one of the trendiest phones around but this does come at a cost, the iPhone is on of the most expensive around. The design and interface is very easy and simple to use, and continues to be the pace setter in the phone industry. One of the biggest attractions is being able to sync your iTunes account onto the iPhone.


Android have made some massive leaps to catch up with the iPhone over the last 2 years. There are many customers who feel android has now surpassed the iPhone for usability.  There are a number of similarities with the iPhone interface in phones such as the Samsung Galaxy.

The advantage of using an android phone is that you can sync them up with any Google accounts; also they play mp3s so if you do not want to convert your music to the largeky unusable mp4 format than android phones is the way for you.

Windows phones

Everyone knows Microsoft have been the leaders within the computer industry for a very long period of time, yet this can not be said about them within the mobile phone industry. Many of Microsoft’s previous phones have not been quite there for many people. Their operating systems have missed the mark and so the uptake has not been great. The previous wrongs seem to have been addressed with their latest release, windows 8.

Microsoft has come up with an interface that can essentially cross formats, so from desktop, laptop and mobile. All your Microsoft devices from your laptop to Xbox can be linked together which can not only be useful but fun as well.


Blackberry has been the pick for professionals and business men alike. Blackberry targets the business professionals, with its QWERTY keyboard, email system and messaging functions Blackberry is the phone for those who need the functions of an office while on the go.
