Faced with an overwhelming choice of phones these days, the average Indian consumer is often confused over which phone to buy. Many people simply go with the suggestion of the sales guy at the mobile shop. Which is really not a very wise decision, because the sales people often have their own interests to take care of (for instance, which phone gives them the maximum margin?).
Guest post by Sahil Bajaj, IIT Delhi Alumnus and Founder of Phonecurry.com – a website that helps you decide which phone is best for you.
In such a situation, what you really need is an unbiased source, that will help you find the best phone to meet your requirements. Enter Phonecurry.com – a web service dedicated to helping the Indian consumer decide which phone to buy, simply and quickly.
The site is so simple to use, that you probably don’t need a how-to article, but here is brief walk-through anyway.
Step 1: Go to PhoneCurry.com. On the homepage, select your basic requirements. There is nothing else to do on the homepage anyway – we like a clean, clutter free approach !
Step 2: Go through the matching results. Set more filters to shorten the shortlist further. Say you want only Nokia or Samsung phones. Or only phones with built-in social networking. Or only phones with both 3G and Wifi. Anything.
Step 3: Check out individual phone pages. Check out the price (regularly updated). Check out the pros and cons of each phone (compiled from various reviews). Check out the overall rating. Check out detailed (and explained) feature listings. Check out videos. In short, everything about the phone.
Step 4: Compare the phones you like, side-by-side, in an intuitive format.
Step 5: Make your decision ! That’s it !
