Shop around for the best value smartphone

Smartphones are taking the world by storm with millions of us glued to the blasted things more or less 24/7. The same goes for tablets and readers. Have you seen that advert where a good looking couple are wandering along in stunningly pretty mountainous countryside with their eyes glued to their Kindle rather than looking at the fantastic view? Ridiculous. I keep hoping they’ll fall off a cliff… or get a life!

Having said that, smartphones and tablets are handy little blighters and highly desirable pieces of electronic kit. But they’re far from cheap, especially if you choose beauty as well as brains and go the Apple route with an iPhone or iPad.

So if you haven’t succumbed yet, hold your horses.  This is one time when bargain hunting really comes into its own and it’s well worth spending time and effort finding the best smartphone deal. Which is where we come in, with a raft of electronics discount codes to explore. Currys, Laskys, Comet, Best Buy and Logitech for a start.

If you’re the kind of person who doesn’t give a stuff about cool brands you can pick up an excellent smartphone for a lot less than an Apple.  They’re all handsome beasts, eye candy galore, and they all do exactly what it says on the tin. Here’s a few ideas:

  • Motorola Atrix
  • HTC Thunderbolt
  • Samsung Infuse 4G
  • T-Mobile G2x
  • T-Mobile myTouch 4G
  • Samsung Galaxy S
  • Samsung Nexus S 4G
  • HTC Evo 4G
  • Xperia Play

It’s a good idea to shop around for the best contract deals too. And move as often as necessary to make sure you’re always getting the best deal. Things are changing incredibly fast in the smartphone market and keeping on your toes can save you a fortune. If you can’t be bothered to switch all the time phone your contract provider once a month and ask them to transfer you to the best deal.

Here’s just a few of the things you can do with your new smartphone:

  • synchronise it with your PC or laptop and access your stuff from anywhere in the known universe
  • play internet radio and listen to crazy radio DJs anywhere on the planet, from Chicago House Music stations to cigar box guitar blues
  • make movies on the hoof and upload them in seconds
  • buy stuff online
  • use the GPS function or app to find your way home
  • pretend to be using it to avoid interacting with people (which 13% of older and 26% of younger people apparently do!)
  • download zillions of apps for everything from swerving parking tickets to finding out what stars you’re looking at and accepting credit card payments
