How do you choose which smartphone to buy?


How much do you weigh up between hardware features vs software features? I mean do you buy a phone with the best camera - max megapixels etc. or is it the apps you often use and want to stay connected with everything that makes your decision or a bit of both.

 

sort by best latest

    Thanks, great comments. I think once you're over the apps it boils down to what "other stuff" you HAVE to use for work and personal organisation. Those factors may play a part in the decision.

    Thanks and agreed! As expected, my current Windows Phone works really well with my office Windows programs....but I still prefer my Nexus overall :-)

    Thanks, good points. I use a Nexus as I run a lot of my own small business stuff with Google apps and docs and the integration is great. For my day job I got a Windows Phone and it integrates surprisingly well with all the Office environment.

    Thanks, I agree you really need to look at your requirements and do some research to see what phone makes sense for you.

    Thanks, I an currently using a Galaxy Nexus and toyed with the idea of switching back to iOS iPhone 5. But after taking a closer look, I'll be sticking with my Nexus & Google apps for the foreseeable future - it meets all my work & play requi
