I Can Barely Run a Computer. How Can I Operate a Smartphone?

If you read the specifications for modern smartphones and all that they pack into them you could be forgiven for thinking that they are hugely complicated machines to operate. Anyone looking to update their old cell phone may be put off simply by the thought that operating a smartphone must surely be at least as complicated as running a computer, and probably more so due to its small size.

In fact, this is not the case for a number of reasons that we will look at here. Smartphones are incredibly easy to use and you will probably be able to master your new phone very quickly indeed. Even if you haven’t yet got the hang of your PC you might like to have a look at these facts and decide for yourself whether you want to have a go at using the latest generation of mobile phones.

User friendly interface. Touch screens models let you simply press the part of the screen you are interested in and it will take you automatically to the area you want to go to without any fuss at all. Everything is named as you would expect it to be and there are no bizarre codes or technical names cluttering up the screens. This intuitive approach means that anyone can pick up a smartphone and get started using it and navigating from screen to screen right away instead of having to read a hefty user manual.

On screen keyboard. If you prefer to use a keyboard then an onscreen one will pop up at your command and let you use a more traditional input method.

Support network. These phones are so popular nowadays that you will find plenty on online blogs, user manuals and forums giving advice to new users and discussing how to make the most of the features. If you have a specific question then you could look up the answer on the Internet. If you can’t find what you are looking for, then putting your query on a user forum will usually let you get really good answers from experts. Experienced users are generally only too happy to help out newcomers and will give you step by step instructions to make sure you understand what you need and how to do it.

Easier to use all the time. A lot of pieces of technology get more complicated as they incorporate more and more features. With smartphones it is actually the opposite that is true. As time goes by and they become more and more complex underneath, the operation is actually getting easier for the users. There are different types of operating systems around, with Android and the Apple iPhone versions as the most common and the most popular ones. Before choosing which phone you want to buy, it might be a good idea for you to try out a few and see which one is the easiest for you to operate. You will probably be surprised at how simple it is to operate a smartphone and how quickly you pick up the basics.
