The last few weeks have been all about Apple, as they released their latest and greatest iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus and announced the Apple Watch due out early next year.

With that in mind, I wanted to bring up the topic of “What mobile device should I buy?”

There are a lot of great phones out there, and to be honest, the difference between them is so small that it all depends on you, the user. Some questions you can ask yourself when thinking about a new device:

  • Are you happy with your current device?
    If you’re happy with you current device, it might be a good idea to stick with the same company. If not, maybe take a look at what other companies have to offer. Samsung has been producing some of the best smartphones on the market, while Windows is becoming the “black horse” in the race, and has been quickly creeping up on Apple and Android.  
  • What kind of computer do you use?
    If your main computer is an Apple, maybe stick with an iPhone. With iOS 8 and Yosemite, the ecosystem is going to get a lot stronger. For PC users, both Windows and Android are slated to release their own upgrades with Windows 9 and Android L.
  • What generation device are you using?
    If you’re running a mobile device more than two generations behind the latest and greatest, it might be best to upgrade to a new model, simply because the new operating systems may not be able to work with your current device.

These are just a few simple questions you can ponder. There are a lot of great toys out there, so maybe play around with them during your next visit to your local electronics store.  You can also check out this great infographic comparing the iPhone 6, Galaxy S5 and HTC One.

Good luck, and enjoy your new smartphone and let us know which you prefer in the comments down below!
