Mobile Phone Buying Guide – 5 Things You Must Consider!

Mobile phones are available with tons of features these days. But have we ever stopped to think which features are important to us and which might not be? I'm sure over the course of many years, all of us have bought at least one mobile phone which we would have regretted buying. Even though most of us go through so many reviews that are available online, we still want to get the latest and greatest mobile phone only to find that it does not fit our lifestyle.

If you are a heavy text message user, you should go for phone with no touch screen but one which offers a keypad instead. This is the most easiest and fastest way to type those text messages. Touch screens offer 2 types: Using a stylus and using your bare fingers. Stylus is good for people who use their mobile phones as PDAs and would like to take quick notes during meetings. Its also a very good fit for those who are looking for handwriting recognition. But if you are not using your phone to scribble any notes during those meetings and would still like a touch screen, then you should go for those mobile phones where you can use your fingers on the touch screen. Stylus operation can be cumbersome at times and this might be a good alternative.
