There were only a few choices if you were looking for a phone that could do more than just basics, but since the iPhone entered the area there have been hundreds of different handsets designed to reboot the system. Not everyone has been successful but last year has more and more been released with some exciting features that compete heavily for what iPhone can offer and the growth of Android operating system has given other Apple smartphones a new lease of life thanks to a clever interface, app store and the availability of cheaper handsets. If you do not affect iPhone 4, or do not want to spend a lot of money, what are your options now?
Budget: The Orange San Francisco phone is one of the top smartphones you can pick up and around £ 90 can do anything that £ 400 smart device can do, but only slower! The phone comes with 3 megapixel camera, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, 3G, Android and a selection of orange cards. Although it lacks some of the most advanced features like GPS, it's a great option for people who want to get the phone capable of browsing the internet and using data connections while being sought after and easy to use.
Moderate: BlackBerry could not have a great year, but the company's bold business range still offers a wide range of features for a decent price and the symbolic BlackBerry keyboard is still the best choice for people who want to use their phone primarily for messaging. The mini-screen compared to other smartphones makes the internet browsing fun, but it does not prevent the BlackBerry Bold 9780 from being one of the versatile and well-designed smartphones in the market and a good example of what BlackBerry can do.
High End Option: HTC Desire is one of the most impressive phone from the company so far. It is one of the most technologically influential phones to date, but its features go beyond simply being fast. Full multitouch capability, 7 home screens, Android 2.2 and beautiful OLED screen makes the phone enjoyable. It's definitely not cheap at the same price as the iPhone 4, but it offers an experience that is both similar and very different. The appearance will be immediately known for iPhone users, but how the phone works, openness and multitasking shows that Android can easily complete the iPhone OS when it is connected to the right handset. For people who are after a larger screen, it's also a slightly more expensive HD version of the phone.
There are only a small selection of phones available if you want to step away from Apple and try something new. There are a lot of great smartphones out there, but there are also a lot of bad or very valuable smartphones as well, so be sure to track the comparison sites and review sites of your mobile device before making a decision you do not end up with slow or bad handsets on a long term contract!
