How to Choose the Best SmartPhone Android vs. Windows 8 vs. iPhone

19 Feb

How to choose a smart phone….this is a question that can only be answered with a few “probing” questions.  This can take any seasoned consultant a few moments to identify.  Here we will begin with some general questions; How do you currently use your current phone?  What do you wish you could do on your next smartphone?  Do you use your phone for any professional needs?

Check out this weeks exclusive Smartphone deals.  Click to browse my exclusive listings via.. http://thesmartphoneteacher.com

Notice I did not ask for what personal needs, the reason for this is because any smart phone should be used for FUN!  Most smart phone users go to the store with good intentions on which phone is best for their current needs and budget.  Although in reality it is a difficult task to select the best smart phone for all of your personal and professional needs.  This weeks best deals provide a solution in each operating system (OS) category (excluding Black Berry) so if you are new to the Smart Phone experience you may want to browse through my older posts to get familiar with some of the benefits of each OS.

A quick pointer….who is your email provider?  Better yet how many email accounts do you want to sync onto your Smartphone, and do you wish to sync/share those calendars?  Do you use Outlook? Do you wish to sync Outlook to your SmartPhone?  Does your employer / business have any applications that run exclusively on a specific OS?  Security is always a concern for portable devices and there are several things to consider in this area. Each OS has a degree of security, although each varies especially if an IT individual tweaks those security levels to fit your needs.  So all in all I leave you with a lot to process, but I do encourage you to contact me with all of your lingering questions.

Sincerely,

The Smart Phone Teacher
