These phones are usually basic, simple to use and inexpensive.   Touch Screen – These phones tend to have larger screens so are good for watching videos, reading eBooks, gaming and using apps such as Google Maps.

Select minimium required camera quality

There are many factors that affect the quality of a phone’s camera, but the best indication is its image resolution. Image resolution is measured in Megapixels (MP). The more Megapixels, the better the resolution. For everyday use, unmudlr recommends a minimum of 3 Megapixels. Anything above a 3 Megapixel camera will produce photos that are good enough to print, upload to Facebook or share via Snapchat. 7MP is roughly the average for a modern smartphone.

Mobile internet is an essential if you intend to do things such as surf the web, receive emails or check Facebook whilst on the move. The speed of your mobile internet will vary depending upon the strength of your phone signal. Mobile Internet will generally be quicker in towns and more densely populated areas. The quickest speed currently available is 4G. Every time that your phone connects to the internet it will use up some of your mobile data allowance. Your allowance varies depending upon your agreement with your network. If you exceed you mobile data allowance, it is possible that you will incur additional charges so it is worth checking this when you purchase your SIM card.

Bluetooth is a wireless technology that enables your phone to connect to other Bluetooth devices within a range of 10m (30ft). It is most commonly used for connecting your phone to a handsfree kit so that you can still make calls whilst driving. Bluetooth comes as standard on most modern phones, tablets or laptops. It is also a handy way to wirelessly send files and photos from one device to another.
