What’s so Great About a Smartphone?

If you have heard some of the buzz about smartphones, then you might be interested in finding out a bit more about what you might actually do with one, if you ever decide to buy one. Here are some of the top uses that people find for smartphones.

1. Call people and send text messages. Alright, so it sounds a bit too obvious to mention but some people get caught up so much in the hype about other features that it is easy to forget this really basic but indispensable function.

2. Internet access. Using Wi-Fi connections to connect to the Internet is a great way to keep up-to-date on news, stock markets and all sorts of other information that could come in handy as you travel. With some smartphones a web browser lets you do a lot more online than this too.

3. Email sending. If you work away from your office a lot, then checking and sending emails remotely is going to be a huge advantage for you. Even if your email is used more for personal reasons than work, you will probably still see some benefits in doing this.

4. Play games. We aren’t talking about the standard “shoot ‘em up” and slowly moving block games, which old-fashioned phones used to offer us. You can now download some wonderfully modern, colorful games that will keep you amused for hours.

5. GPS. If you choose a smartphone with GPS then you can get step-by-step directions to wherever you want to go, and it can also be used to contact local businesses. More advanced software lets you track lost or stolen phones.

6. Traffic and weather updates. Having constantly updated information at your fingertips as you drive can help you get to your destination a lot easier and more safely.

7. Multimedia content. With a smartphone you can listen to your own MP3 music or stream internet radio. You can also watch videos on it, and in a lot of cases you can easily upload files to YouTube.

8. Calendar and scheduling. This is more commonly used by business people but nevertheless anyone can take advantage of a phone’s scheduling features to organize their day a bit better.

9. Camera and video camcorder. You can either take pictures and videos directly with your smartphone or transfer them from your camera onto it. This gives you an easy access to your files on the go, and you can view or email them even while you don’t have access to your computer. Image viewers and editors can be downloaded if the phone doesn’t come with one.

10. Apps. There are a huge number of applications that you can download from either the Apple App Store (for iPhones) or the Android Marketplace. These offer an incredibly diverse selection of software, and if you are expecting to see just games you will be delighted to see health aids, live sports updates, and even apps to help you write your weekly grocery list.
