Five things to look out for while buying a midrange phone

A mobile phone is not just a voice communication tool, but an extension of our lifestyle. It is perhaps the last instrument that we use before hitting the bed, and the first one, when we wake up – sometimes, it is the one who we depend on to wake us up. So, for those whose needs from a cell phone are beyond just making a simple call, or sending a SMS, there are a wide range of phones which are available. Let us have a look at some of the essential features of a mid range phone.

Pc Sync – Backup

One of the worst things that can happen to a mobile phone user is losing his contacts, photos and other important files on his instrument. This can happen because of a multitude of reasons, say due to water damage (see our feature on Rain Proofing your Mobile Phone) or in case your phone is lost or stolen (Read Securing and backing up your phone). One of the safest ways is to ensure that your phone is always backed up, and you have a copy of your important files and contacts on your computer. Any decent midrange phone would have the minimal capabilities to do this, so that you know that you can get back to having your new phone up and running in no time.

Good Multimedia Capabilities

Since your phone is more than just a communication tool, you will definitely require some enhanced multimedia options which let you watch complete movies in multiple formats, and listen to your favorite music whether on the radio or your own personal music collection. Some of the features you may want to look out for on your phone is a player which supports a variety of formats. It should also have a generous internal memory and an expandable memory card slot which will let you take almost your entire music collection with you on the move. Look out for features such as A2DP Bluetooth connectivity which let you listen to music via a Bluetooth stereo headset.
