Getting a mobile phone is no longer based on the looks. It was so much easier to pick between mobile phones which all had the same functions but looked different based on the different users. Now every mobile comes with different operating systems and different features. Now you will also have to give a thought to the phone’s OS before you settle on a design. The most important decision to make now while buying a phone is to choose between the different operating systems. Every operator has cellphones with one or different operating systems. With operating systems such as Apple iOS, Android, Symbian, Web OS, Blackberry OS, Windows Phone OS, Bada and MeeGo, the number of operating systems is staggering.
Your choice of smart phone OS can only get better only after spending a considerable amount of time using each one. A person might like a part of one OS and some other part in another OS. One important factor while choosing an OS is it has all the features you require such as email viewing, browser, games, etc. Even if an OS does not come with all these installed, it has to have applications installation feature with which you can get all these functionalities in your cell phone. Apple has more than 1 million applications for its mobile phones. Google’s Android phones have more than half a million applications. Check if applications useful to you. You can also check whether the OS allows for open OS installation. This will be very useful. Other features such as Multi-touch, application synching, flash support, multitasking, availability with multiple handset manufacturers, constant upgrades, tethering, security, etc. are important thing to be checked. Only then comes the option of hardware. To choose the best phone, you will have to look at user reviews. Without these you cannot make a good choice.
