Let me share with you the new phone I am using now. I don’t want to appear as if I am bragging about it, because it is not really something hi-end, but it was good enough to meet what to me are “essentials” in terms of phone specifications as for my likings.

My buying considerations:
– Wifi
– Twitter / Facebook / Google Maps / YouTube/ Palringo (among other installed and readily available apps)
– Touchscreen
– MP3 Player and Radio
– Price
I’m not really a techie person. Not an iPhone fan some more. After almost two years of using my old but still reliable Samsung F330, I’d say getting Lindy is quite a major leap, considering all the features that come with it.
Phone selection really boils down to personal preferences. Some may like the “over the top”or the “in thing” My smart buying head says, choose a phone, not because it’s popular or it’s full packed with features, but more of practicality and really what suits your needs. Don’t buy something that will slave you on features which are new to you and you don’t really require. Not everything that makes noise, is fabulous. But then again, it’s all a matter of choice!
