Cell phones aren't simple as they once used to be and purchasing a new cell phone certainly isn't easy as it may seem at first. Cell Phones today are no longer used as mere communication devices. Some people use it for their audio capabilities like hearing music, recording an audio clip and some for their video capabilities like capturing images or making a video. And then there are those who carry cell phones to make a style statement.

There are a number of cell phone manufacturers in the market today. And more than that are the number of handsets available. So how do you decide a manufacturer and a particular handset manufactured by them?

Word of mouth and previous purchases can be contributing factors. For apparent reasons most consumers tend to stick to manufacturers they have experience with. Or they rely on friends or family members for recommendations. Then based on their requirements and budget they decide a particular handset. This method works well and is pretty effective.

In this guide we will help you create a blueprint which you can use while purchasing a new cell phone.

The first and foremost thing to decide and be clear upon is your budget. Once you decide a precise amount you are willing to spend, its time you start looking for a cell phone which meets your needs.

The next step is requirements. What will you be using the cell phone for other than to communicate? Do you plan on using it to hear music? Will you be clicking photographs or making short videos using it? How about checking your email using it? As can be seen, your requirements are the key.

Make a list of things you will be using your cell phone for and based on this and taking your budget into consideration, you can then start searching for a cell phone to purchase

You will find a number of cell phones we sell on our Handsets page. Find a cell phone which fits your budget and then use a search engine like Google to find reviews for that particular handset. Let's assume you are thinking of purchasing a Nokia N73 Music Edition. Open Google using a browser and search for "Nokia N73 Music Edition Reviews" without the quotes. In the search results page you will find a number of pages which have a review pertaining to this particular handset. Go through as many reviews as you possibly can and see what others have written about it. Based on these reviews you can decide if whether you want to go ahead and purchase this particular model or not. You may also ask a friend or family member who owns a handset you are thinking of purchasing and see what they have to say regarding it.

By doing proper research you will definitely be able to find a cell phone you will love and enjoy.
