How Do I Choose a Mobile Phone?

If you’re looking to buy a new mobile phone, you may have already found yourself dipping into the market only to be inundated with confusing choices and decisions.

Picking a mobile phone has never been a more daunting task – do you want a contract phone or pay as you go? A basic handset or a top of the range smartphone? Do you want a phone that bends? (OK, so these aren’t available on the wide market yet but seriously, they’re in production!)

With so much choice you may even find yourself thinking that it just isn’t worth the effort. STOP. Choosing the right mobile phone is very important, as phones these days are an integral part of our everyday life. Don’t be afraid – here’s a helpful guide to help you think things through before you dive on in.

If you’re really stumped with where to start, don’t hesitate to head over to a physical mobile phone store. You can browse network specific stores such as Orange or Vodafone, or find a general phone retailer like the Carphone Warehouse or Phones 4 U.

You will usually be offered assistance straight away when you enter a store like this – if you feel comfortable talking to someone then do so, but if not, just say you’re browsing and have a good look around.

Remember that you don’t have to buy or sign up for anything in store. You can have a closer look at some handsets and tariffs, and if necessary do some further investigation online when you get home.

The type of phone you choose depends on a wide variety of factors; what will you be using the phone for?

Smartphones include all kinds of features, such as satellite navigation and internet browsing; whilst basic handsets will allow you to send texts, make calls, and not much else. How much do you want to pay per month?

You can opt for a monthly contract so you know exactly how much your bill will be, or if you’d rather be more flexible, then go for a pay as you go SIM which you can top up whenever you need to.

Don’t be afraid to ask for advice – staff in stores such as those mentioned above will be happy to help, and websites often have an advice section, an FAQ, or even a live chat function.
