Smartphone Basics to Keep You in the Loop

If you're interested in buying a smartphone or simply love new gadgets then this is the place to be.

We cover the latest phones coming to market complete with reviews, the best handset manufacturers, operating systems,

and pros/cons of each of the wireless cellphone carriers.

The goal isn't to be everything to everyone in the technology sector. Instead, we focus on one thing and only one thing: smartphones.

Rest assured no one here is going to speak using highly technical jargon when explaining the specs of each phone. Not exactly a "smartphone for dummies" website, but we'll use everyday language here.

Your feature phone has served its purpose of calling and text messages and now you're ready to upgrade to something new.

So what makes a cell phone a smartphone?

  • Access to the internet
  • Camera and Video
  • Email
  • Apps and Games

These are just a few of the features of a smartphone, plenty more to come.

Have you ever attempted to purchase a technology product and felt you were just being sold on every feature and spec imaginable? You know those salespeople who don't know when to stop or when they lost you.

You're thinking to yourself, "I just want a smartphone that does XYZ, and anything else I could care less about."

At the Smartphone Consumer we understand how the decision to buy a smartphone actually goes.

You either know someone with a new phone or see ads in the news . Then you start thinking it's time to upgrade yourself. This starts a cycle of polling your friends and family about their phones. Finally armed with all of this information you take the plunge and make the purchase.

Three weeks later when the newness has worn off, you see a commercial like...

Your friends and family can only help so much when it comes to buying a smartphone. You need an authoritative source that lives and breathes smartphones. We'll keep you in the loop about the latest product announcements so you'll never buy a phone which is heavily discounted because a new version is about to come out.

Be sure to dial up the Smartphone Consumer and visit often. We would be doing you a disservice and probably making a fool of ourselves if we didn't mention that we're optimized for mobile browsing.
