Coverage, Cost, Camera: Things to Consider when Buying a Mobile Phone

With the range of mobile phones available to buy constantly growing, it is easy to become overwhelmed by the sheer volume of differing makes and models. By considering what your needs are, you can find the right handset to suit all your requirements and more.

Mobile phone coverage is an important thing to consider. There is no sense in signing up to an expensive deal of you cannot make or receive calls due to poor network coverage. Most mobile providers have signal strength maps on their websites. It is advisable to check both your local area and any place that you spend a lot of time in on each network's map, to make sure that you will receive sufficient coverage to make a new deal worth it.

When you are certain that you will receive adequate coverage, you should consider whether you require features like mobile internet browsing, GPS or a camera on your phone. If you would like to take photos, it is worth looking at the camera phones that were launched in the last year, as most recent models tend to feature higher resolutions and technology that makes pixelated, blurry images a thing of the past.

If you do not want to be tied down to a contract lasting between twelve and twenty-four months or you have a strict budget to adhere to and features such as cameras or mp3 players are not one of your priorities, it may be worth investigating whether a pay-as-you-go phone would be a wiser choice. There is an extensive range of mobile phones on the market that cost less than £100 to buy. These cheaper handsets often boast strong signal and longer battery life than more recent smartphone models.

It is also worth considering whether you want a phone with a keypad, or one that is controlled via a touch-screen. With touch-screen technology becoming more commonplace, the choices for those of us who want the reassuring feel of a button are becoming more limited, although there are still some attractive models on the market that feature number keys or ‘qwerty’ keyboard layouts. It is recommended that you visit a high street mobile phone retailer to try out a handset of each type before deciding which technology you prefer.

If the process of choosing leaves you with a headache, try visiting a comparison site. These websites bring all available contracts and handsets together in one place, allowing users to browse by manufacturer, operator, monthly cost and a variety of other categories. They also feature extensive FAQ sections, where you can find answers to any queries you may have about price plans, handsets and your rights as a consumer if, once you have decided which phone you want, you decide to return your phone or terminate your contract.
