Things to consider when buying a new mobile phone
Mobile operating systems
Fancy upgrading your mobile phone to a new one packed with the latest tech? Looking to buy an affordable first phone for a family member? We can help.
What are the best SIM free phones?
With SIM free phones, you pay the cost upfront and the mobile phone’s all yours. Then simply look for SIM only dealsfrom the mobile network of your choice (our range includes iD Mobile and Voxi SIM cards), and you’re good to go! Looking for a pay monthly mobile plan instead? Then head to Carphone Warehouse, our sister supplier.
What mobile operating system should I choose?
The most popular mobile operating systems (OS) for smartphones are iOS and Android:
iOS runs exclusively on Apple devices such as iPhones, iPads, and Apple Watch
Android is made by Google and runs on most other phone brands.
Your choice might come down to the type of phone you’ve had in the past and feel comfortable with. You might also want to consider how compatible it’ll be with your other smart tech such as tablets and laptops. For example, if you’re completely at home with your Apple iPad, it makes sense to choose an Apple iPhone. Then you can easily share data and personal info across devices.
