So you've got your heart set on a brand spanking new phone. A cursory glance at the best mobile phone deals will reveal that you could be paying anywhere between $100 to more than $1000. Regardless of how much money you have to spend, you will be looking at one of the following three options.


You have to remember that the best smartphones will take the place of you camera, personal computer, music player, calendar organizer and even alarm clock. Because you are getting so much value for money, you should be prepared to spend a little more. It's a good investment. Whether you choose an Android, Windows Phone or iOS operating system is really down to personal preference. If you have lots of Apple products in your life already, it might make sense to pick up the latest iPhone. But then again, you might want a change!

Basic Pay as You Go Phones

Many people still prefer life with a simple phone that only takes calls and texts. Why? Perhaps they don't want to be checking their phone every 5 minutes for new emails or social media updates. There is also the issue of cost - with a basic pay as you go phone it's up to you when you pay any money. If you don't want to be landed with a 24 month mobile phone contract, then this could be the right option. Basic handsets also cost next to nothing these days which is a plus.

Business Phones

A busy working life can mean you need a separate handset for work related calls and correspondence. Even if your job doesn't take up all that much of your personal time this can be a good way to improve your work/life balance. Blackberry phones may have gone a little out of fashion these days but they are still much loved by business people. The full QWERTY keyboard blurs the lines between a mobile phone and a computer, which some of us can't resist. The latest Blackberries also have advanced email and business functionality that could truly streamline your workday.

Choosing a mobile phone isn't all that hard. Match your basic requirements to your budget and go from there.
