What are the best options for a phone to travel with?
When travelling for business or for leisure, you want a phone that is going to be suitable. With all the things they can do for you now (we’re sorry to say) it makes life a lot more difficult without one. The best options out there are the smart phones. You may have heard a lot (maybe too much) about these phones, but if not, Phones4U provide a really reliable service that gives you all the different phones available on comparable tariffs, making sure you can get a good phone for an even better price.
Travelling is made so much easier with the use of a smart phone. We would never like to admit it, but the fact that you can now take a picture or video of what’s happening in front of you and then instantly uploads it to your favourite social media site has a much bigger appeal than texting what you saw to your gran (okay so maybe your gran won’t have picked up on the iPhone hype yet – bad example) High clarity phone cameras make this even easier now. The Nokia Lumia and iPhones are probably the best around at the moment for this.
Calling people whilst travelling has never been as simple as it is now. IPhones provide a face time option (to other iPhone users) meaning you can video chat for free. If you prefer a different phone, Skype is a free application now that you can download to your mobiles and use just as you would on a computer. It’s becoming increasingly useful in terms of calling colleagues and doing interviews whilst on the move as you can see the other person face to face. Knowing it doesn’t cost you anything makes it that bit sweeter.
GPS is perhaps the best feature on smart phones at the minute. Providing you with maps when you need them it can find your current location and direct you to where you want to go. As well as being able to do this on foot, it doubles up as a sat nav to use in your car; it even speaks to you. The best phones for this are the iPhone and Samsung (Galaxy options.)
With all these features and much more to keep you occupied whilst travelling, your battery is going to run low. IPhone and Samsung phones available on the o2 network are the best picking back up after a quick 10 minute charge which is really useful if you just want to plug it in for a quick few minutes on the train.
