Everybody has a cell phone with them in today’s world. It’s like wearing clothes or carrying a purse when going out. It has become a necessity, albeit one that is primarily for communication and entertainment. To maximize our enjoyment, many people do not bother with regular “feature phone” cell phones anymore. Smart Phones are where it’s at. You can do so much more – nearly everything that you can do on a regular home computer – and you can do it anywhere.
When choosing a smart phone, there is 1 main choice that needs to be made: Android or iPhone. Sure, there are other options out there (e.g., Windows Phone, Blackberry, etc.), but they won’t be the best choice for most users due to a more limited selection of apps and other usability issues.
