How to choose a smartphone
for lots of apps

Top three things to consider

  1. Lots of storage so you don’t run out of space for apps
  2. iOS or Android – we suggest you stick to what you know
  3. Large data packages let you use apps anywhere for longer
Pick Your Best smartphone

There are few things more annoying than your smartphone running out of space and why does it always seem to happen when you are just too busy to sort it out properly! So, if you are a bit of an app junkie you need more space on your smartphone, it’s as simple as that. To find a smartphone with lots of storage space use our Product Chooser.

There are two other big decisions to make when selecting a smartphone and they both come down to personal preference really.

Firstly the operating system – Android or iOS? Most apps for pleasure, work, shopping and travel are designed to work on either system. Let’s face it some people get a little bit obsessed about being either Apple or Android, but the reality is that they are all pretty good these days. If you are used to one system already we suggest you stick to it. That way you don’t have to spend time re-learning new settings and you can transfer any apps you have already paid for to your new phone. If you don’t have a preference toss a coin! Seriously, you can’t really make a bad decision here.

Secondly, how are you going to pay for the phone? If you can afford to buy one up front you can have a simpler SIM only contract. If you want to spread the payments, get a monthly contract. But remember whichever route you choose – all those apps will suck up your data allowance. So, if you are going to be wanting access to all your apps while you’re out and about, you will need a decent data allowance or be permanently in search of free WiFi… and end up paying in coffee!
