I want a new phone. Now my history with buying technology is a bit like a roller coaster ride. When I was young and I finally convinced my Dad to buy for example a laptop or my first mobile phone, we would just drive into town, go into the first shop and ask someone to give us whatever they think is best.
90 % of these choices included out of date phones or easily breakable laptops. Nowadays, I spend weeks searching the web, looking at tables, specifics (luckily I know quite a bit about the newest technology) and in the last instance I ask someone in a shop, just to confirm my evaluation.
So this is what I will do in order to decide what phone is best for me:
1. Decide how to narrow down the choices
What I need
What I want
2. See what is out there
Compare 3 Options
Pro and cons
3. Decide for the best one
Tests, Tables and Opinions
Options with contract / without contract
Shops and their services
5. Evaluate the phone experience (can always bring it back)
Hope everyone in the research project (the next 4 weeks) finds the best suitable smartphone for their personal needs.
