Choosing the right handset

Before you pick your phone, consider what you plan to use it for. There’s no point choosing the latest smartphone if you’re only going to call and text. If you are on the hunt for a high-end phone, remember to read the specifications to see how well it’s suited to your needs for things like photography, music, media, or gaming.
