Unlocked Phones Rules!
Having been using an unlocked phone for so long, I thought it was time I talked about it some more. As most of your know, I have been an advocate for No contracts! In order to get the best possible service for my cell phone plan, you’ll need to consider some features of the android phone.
Size is everything!
If your going to be using it more for games and everything in between such as Netflix or even watching movies from the Google Play store, then you will need a big display maybe even more like a Phablet. If however your going to use as a just a cell phone, then you will want to a smaller and more sleek phone. One you can easily put in your pocket and not have to worry about belt holders or even a really fancy screen protection for the smart phone.
Depending on your area, some people have access to the LTE Network and others are only limited to 3g, CDMA, 4G network. It varies from Network provider. Let’s say you’re going to use AT&T through Straight Talk, well the Map for coverage of the US is limited at best for 4G LTE, so you will most likely only get 3G in some if not all areas depending on where you live! What if your were going through Sprint? I will say most of the time you will have 4G access to most areas in the US but I can’t say it is a 100% reliable and available in all areas. You must do research on which network you’ll be using with the unlocked phone!
With some phones you will be able to add more storage like getting a Micro SD (Amazon Affiliate Link) card to use with the phone to put pictures and media files on it and not have to worry about running out of memory! Although like my new phone the Life View Blue (Unlocked), it doesn’t allow me to add a Micro SD card, so I only have 8 Gb’s of space on the phone and that is it. It doesn’t mean I can’t use it for streaming my music, or media files. That will always be something I can do with this phone. It will always be limited to how much Data you can use on any given month. You must decide if you are willing to use the Data of your network or if you are going to use it at free wi-fi Hotspots. If you can live with the space, then it isn’t such a big problem!
The is going to be my last one for this blog post. Some of us use our phone as a camera and thus we have those special moments in our life that we may want to get a very clear picture of to remember that moment. So you must decide which phone is going to do that for you. If you’re going to be using it for pictures and not a professional camera then you might want to get an unlocked Phone with the Highest quality pictures it can take. This usually means trying to find a Phone that has 8mp or High on the phone! If you’re looking for the best Unlocked phone with the Highest quality camera on it. It looks to be right now the Nokia Lumina 1020 (Unlocked phone) (Amazon Affiliate Link) with it’s 41 Mp(38 Mp effectiveness) picture quality. So it just depends on which phone you are willing to pay or buy for the quality of the pictures with the phone! I personally Chose the Life View Blue Phone [Unlocked] from Blu with it’s 12mp camera!
