what to look for in sizzling smartphones

sizzling smartphone features

1. Operating system beyond Apple’s OS, there are four main ways to go: Windows Phone 7, Google Android, BlackBerry and HP’s Web OS. BlackBerry is still best for business, Android has great apps and the currently limited WP7 is ideal for Smartphone newbies. All sync with your PC (and most with Mac) to give mobile email, calendar and contacts.
2. Connectivity Bluetooth is handy. Wi-Fi powers internet and email, HSDPA provides mobile broadband everywhere and A-GPS means sat-nav. Look for compasses, too.
3. Screen Standard resolution is up to 800×480 these days, but the real fun starts with touch screen interfaces. The ideal scenario is a phone that offers screen input and a dedicated QWERTY keyboards, although this adds bulk.
4. Apps as important the phones are the application they can run. The iTunes App Store is streets ahead; Android Market’s second.

besides the features given above there is a great deal for the ideas that follows down which you should look for before buying a smartphone...



Design factors to consider when buying a smartphone include the type of keyboard, the size of the screen and the size of the device. Some smartphone keyboards consist of actual buttons whereas others use touchscreen keyboards. Many people feel more comfortable using an actual keyboard; however, to accommodate the keyboard, either the screen will be smaller or the phone will be bulkier. Which one you choose is a matter of preference. Just make sure the screen is large enough for your needs. If you plan on using your phone to read and write documents, watch movies or play games, you will probably want a larger screen. If you will be using your phone primarily to listen to music, a smaller screen, and therefore a less bulky device, might be the better option for you.


Smartphones can store many items, including documents, bookmarks, music, pictures, videos, games and applications. If you will be using your smartphone to store items from two or more of these categories, make sure your phone has enough storage space to accommodate them. Four to eight gigabytes of storage is plenty and will hold a wide range of media. If buying a smartphone with less than four gigabytes, look for models that accommodate extremal expansion cards to store additional items if desired.

Battery Life

The life of a smartphone's battery is measured in two ways. The first is standby time, referring to the amount of time the phone will stay on when not in use. Most smartphones have a standby time of 140 to 400 hours, with an average of around 300 hours. Standby time is far less important than talk time, which refers to the actual length of time you can use your phone before the battery dies and the phone shuts off. Most smartphones have a talk time of 3 to 13 hours, with an average of around 5 hours. Four hours of talk time is sufficient to get you through a workday as long as you do not use the added features for extended periods of time. If you do use your phone features frequently, look for five hours of talk time or more.

Productivity Features

Compare the various productivity features of various smartphones before making your purchase. For example, look for a phone with Bluetooth capability if you speak on your phone while driving or if you want to fax or print documents directly from your phone. Bluetooth technology uses signals to communicate with certain external devices wirelessly, such as earpieces for handsfree driving or Bluetooth-capable fax machines and printers. Another feature to consider is the phone book. Look for a phone book that allows for multiple phone numbers and other contact information to be stored on the same contact, as opposed to having to create a separate contact for each of the same person's phone numbers. Also, look for a contact storage capacity of 300 to 500. Other features to look for include call waiting, call holding, conference calling, day planner, alarms, personal reminders, GPS features and a fully functioning Web browser.

The best business cell phones have at least a 5 megapixel camera with zoom features and the ability to play and record audio and video. These cell phones act as life management devices and include organizational features like calendars and task lists. Most sync with home computers allowing for document viewing and editing.
The foundation of business is communication, and these product's first function is as a cellular phone. These devices for business should include all typical cell phone features including speakerphone, three-way calling, voice dialing, call waiting, etc.
The most practical products are compact, include good input and display options, and enough battery life to last through a full day’s work and beyond.
Many cellular devices include practical tools like calculators, map applications and GPS. Some have the ability to support third-party or browser-based programs that can perform a variety of specific functions. Third-party apps are becoming a key component, allowing the user to customize their smartphones to support their lifestyles.
