Finding the right phone for you can be a hassle. When you look at the low to midrange phones, it seems like there isn’t really all that much difference between them.

You’re all about using your phone as, well, a phone. You’ll want to be sure to find a phone that has good speakers and sounds great both when up to your ear and on speakerphone. For the best quality phone calls, you also want to be sure to get a 4G device and be on a network that offers 4G speeds. Wifi calling is also an option for when you don’t have signal, so make sure your phone can do that too (and most of them can nowadays).


From snapping photos of friends to Instagramming your every meal, you love taking photos. Obviously, you’ll want to be sure to get a smartphone that has a good of a camera as possible. Make sure it has a tap-to-focus as well as any other features you want. Lots of memory is going to be a must for you as well, as those photos can really eat up the space.


Gaming is no longer only tied to consoles and computers; now there are a million different gaming apps that provide hours of entertainment. If you like to play games on your smartphone, you’ll want to invest in one with a larger screen to admire those graphics and a decent processor so it doesn’t skip.

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram… no matter what the social media of your choice is, you simply wouldn’t want to be without that connection. For you, having a phone with 4G connectivity and a good camera is going to be important. If you’re into selfies, then you’ll want to check the specs of the front camera as much as the back and avoid VGA cameras!

For the businessman, connectivity, productivity and security are going to be the first and foremost concerns. Be sure to get a phone that has a good amount of RAM for all that multitasking and apps that you’ll need to access on a daily basis. Get something with 4G if possible so you don’t have to wait for your emails to load, and obviously a data plan will be a must for you.


Sometimes, you don’t really need a phone for every little thing. If you’re one of those people who really only needs a phone for emergencies, then you’ll probably want something that has a great battery so you don’t have to worry about it being dead the few times you actually need it. For someone like you, apps might not really be all that important so you should consider a flip phone for the superior battery life and durability.


Whether it’s running the kids all over the place or trying to organize meeting with coworkers and friends, the organizer needs to be connected at all times. You’ll want to be sure to have a phone that has a good battery life for those days when you’re running constantly, and it might not be a bad idea to get something with lots of memory for all of those apps you use to help stay on top of everything.
