The Easiest Smartphones To Use

Lets face it, as tech gears are getting more powerful and more advanced, they are also getting much more complicated to use. Smartphones today are getting more and more powerful by the day and they are starting to become mini computers in their form and function. For those who have yet to hop on the smartphone bandwagon, getting started today on one can be a little daunting. Here is a quick guide to some of the easiest smartphones to use.

Smartphone With A Large Screen

You may be tempted to get a small smartphone due to their competitive pricing but that might not be a good idea. Chances are, you will be using your smartphone to log on to Facebook, write emails and surf the web. For those reasons, it is best that you get a phone that has at least a 4-inch screen or larger. Smartphones that are smaller than that may have all the usual features but reading texts and typing on those small screens can be challenging at times, if not downright irritating. So as a general rule: 4-inch or larger.

Android phones may have come a long way in terms of technical advancements and features, but in terms of user-friendliness, I must confess that the iPhone still leads the pack. The user interface on the iPhone is very intuitive where even the freshest of newbies would be able to get a hang of it quickly after using it for a short period of time. When it comes to customizations and variations, the iPhone is light years behind Android devices, but this turns out to be an advantage for those who are looking for a smartphone that is easy to use. Its user interface is clean and simple, and the controls are all well laid out and easy to find. Like all other Apple devices, iPhones are very well made so you can be assured that you are getting a reliable and durable phone when you buy one. If you are not chasing after the latest trends and features, you can opt to by an older iPhone model (such as the iPhone 3S or 4) since they have less features than the latest models and hence, might be easier to use.

Unlike iPhone models (that has a consistent user interface across the board), Android smartphones are diverse in variety when it comes to user-friendliness. Each phone brand have their own custom Android user interface so the Android experience between brands vary quite significantly. So far, the user-friendliest version would have to be the original stock Android version found of Google Nexus devices. If you plan to get an easy-to-use Android smartphone, Google Nexus smartphones would be a good choice. Other than that, Motorola Android smartphones would also be a good bet as their Android skin is very close to the stock Android experience. LG and HTC’s user interface have also received some great reviews for being user friendly. To be safe, you might want to try the phones, hands-on, to see which one you like best before making your purchase decision.
