If you’re going to carry a fully functional minicomputer in your pocket every day, all day, it should be one that suits you. Your smartphone should be matched to your own sense of financial strategy, your personality, your habits and routine. Basically, it should match your lifestyle.
Too often, people don’t put the thought into this relatively big purchase, and end up with something that either doesn’t suit their needs, or a phone that just feels wrong in terms of features, functionality and/or design. Finding the right phone takes work! But when you do, you enjoy your device a lot more.
Broadening Your Options
One reason that people end up with smartphones they don’t like or smartphones that don’t fit them is that they walk into their carrier’s storefront and have to choose between 5 to 6 options from a given manufacturer that are all somewhat the same. There’s not a lot of effort put into personalizing what you find when you buy new from your carrier – the trade-off is the convenience of just having the reps set up everything for you. But if you take the time to get just a little more engaged in how your smartphone works – you can have better results for the entire life of your phone!
Buying new is great if you want the absolute newest phone on the market, but what if you don’t want to open up a brand-new box and deal with a whole new set of accessories and a different operating system or different features and controls?
In that case, you can often get a better fit by checking out some of the used and refurbished offers that third parties can provide. A used phone doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice performance or anything else. It’s really a smart way to go for the majority of smartphone holders.
At Refurb Kings, we have put together a great selection of pre-owned smartphones and mobile phones that are ready to go on your carrier’s network. This gives you additional options in order to figure out what kind of phone you want to be carrying in your pocket. You and your phone will be spending a lot of time together!
There’s also the cost savings to think about. By making do with a more affordable phone, you’re saving resources in order to plan for the future. Spend that extra money on whatever you want, and feel more at peace with the hazards your phone faces every day it moves around with you.
