If you’re in the market for a smartphone, you probably already know that it can be hard to make a decision. I can tell you from working in the industry as a sales representative, that if you turn your focus to the couple different areas laid out here, I’ll help you get closer to that decision. And, who knows, maybe you’ll have made your decision after the advice.
The most difficult part for a lot of people to come to terms with, I’ve found, is paying the $30 data charge. Or, paying for a data plan that falls somewhere near that price point. If you think of the data charge in three different price chunks, it will prove to be more mentally satisfying.
For example: If you were to pay $10 for GPS as a stand-alone feature because you needed it, it wouldn’t seem as outrageous. That, by itself, is a third of the total data charge! So, the key here is to come up with three different services/applications that you would use on a regular-daily basis. oppo f17 pro
If you struggle with the idea of finding three applications to make use of, simply think of three daily activities that you take part in that don’t necessarily involve technology or a smartphone. Once you have come up with three of your hobbies/activities, it’s very likely that you’ll find related applications and/or reasons to use the web on the go.
Really think about the next couple questions, and be honest with your answers.
Ask yourself this question after you decide on your three choices – would you pay $10 for each one of those applications individually to supplement your lifestyle?
If your answer was yes, then all the other features and benefits that come with the smartphone above and beyond your three are just icing on top of the cake.
If your answer was no, then a smartphone probably isn’t appropriate for you right now. Or, you need to go back and brainstorm more options. However, if you can’t at least come up with three, then it makes that data plan not worthy of your money.
Your choice should represent your personality.
A smartphone these days isn’t just for the business individual. In fact, the majority of the smartphone users don’t even need to use any type of corporate functions that are available on the devices. This is the reason that you should pick a device that is an extension of your personality. Of course, that’s not to say that the industry is any less harboring to those business focused individuals, but things have definitely changed.
Now, most of the smartphones come decked out with different layouts, themes, widgets, etc… In a sense, they’ve brought quite a bit of consolidation to consumers lives. It’s becoming less often that you see someone who actually “needs” to carry a work phone as well as a personal phone. This is because you can separate the two on the devices themselves in many cases. For this reason you should choose a device that will satisfy your personal taste before you choose anything else.
