Mobile Features: What To Look For

Today's mobile phones are little wonders which have come a long way from the house bricks of the 1980s. Back then, there were no mobile features; just the fact of being able to make calls from cell phones that you could carry around was enough to make these little gadgets popular. A couple of decades later, we expect much more from our mobile phones. It seems that there's very little they can't do. Making calls is just the beginning.

Here's a guide to some of the best mobile features you might want to consider on your next mobile phone purchase:

Text Messaging

Texting is one of the mobile features some can't live without! Who knew that text would become a thing you could do instead of something to read? The ability to send text messages from one mobile phone to another through the short message service (SMS) has completely changed the way we use our mobile phones. No longer are cell phones just for making calls, but also for texting—sending and receiving text messages.

Text messaging works by using the letters on your numeric keypad to write messages which you can send to any mobile phone in the world (once you have the number). We'd just about got used to that when predictive texting was introduced. That's when your cell phones work out what you want to type and enters it for you. This has got much better and teens everywhere use it as their primary method of communication.

Ringtones

If you haven't changed the ringtone on your mobile phone, then you're missing the chance to express your personality with every call you take. Ringtones are another of the mobile features most mobile phone users love to have. There's absolutely no need for mobile phones to sound like phones with these nifty mobile features. Your cell phones can have personality with a polyphonic ringtone or one that sounds just like your favourite song on CD. Those are called true music ringtones, and there's a huge selection of them online. Every mobile phone comes with dozens built in and you can download thousands more. With some cell phones, you can have a different ringtone for every caller.

Camera

Point and shoot does not only apply to a digital camera; it can also relate to mobile phones and mobile features. These days, it's hard to find a mobile phone without a built-in camera, and the cameras are every bit as good as some of the better digital models. It's not out of the question to get a 5 megapixel camera phone which takes high resolution images. You can also get mobile phones that take short videos, and some people have even used their phones to create short films. Cameras are popular mobile features.

Multimedia

Modern cell phones have even more multimedia mobile features. Depending on the model you choose, you can have FM radio, download MP3 files, use it as a music player, and visit the web for even more fabulous features. If you've got a 3G (third generation) mobile phone, then there's virtually no limit to what you can do with it. In fact, 3G phones are more like little computers, but housed in a tidy phone package. With a 3G phone and its mobile features you can:

  • make video phone calls (it's no longer science fiction)

  • download streamed web content

  • take text messaging to the next level with video messaging

  • use it for GPS

  • get digital audio and TV on your 3G mobile handset.

It's perfect for keeping up with your favourite programmes.

Games

The increasing popularity of 3G mobile phones is bound to add some interest to one of the other popular mobile features—games. Most cell phones have some games built in. Whether these are any good or not is the luck of the draw. It doesn't matter much, as you can download other games to find something more to your taste. Practically any game you like has been ported to mobile phones, so you are spoilt for choice, and you're likely to have even more choice as more people get all-singing, all-dancing multimedia phones.

Accessories

Finally, no list of mobile features would be complete without some accessories. Hands free sets and car kits are available for virtually every model, as well as cases in a variety of materials. But the real winners when it comes to accessories for mobile phones are the clip on face plates. Not only do they protect cell phones, but they add a touch of individuality and style to mobile phones.
