Best smartphones to take on holiday

Get ready for summer with your smartphone

If you’re lucky enough to be counting down the days to your upcoming holiday, it might be worth checking if you’re due a smartphone upgrade before you go. Our great range of 2017 handsets all have individual talents that could come in very handy while you’re enjoying some time away from the daily grind.

Having the right phone on holiday is important, and don’t forget that it can come in handy at the airport with most major airlines offering apps that let you display your boarding pass and show up to date flight information.

For the photographers

Long gone are the days of having to drop off a disposable camera to Boots to get your holiday snaps developed. Lots of our most popular smartphones have great cameras attached to them, and you can check out our list of the best ones right here.

For the sun-worshipers

If you’re on the hunt for some summer sun, you could find a great smartphone companion in the 2017 Nokia range. The Nokia 3, Nokia 5, and Nokia 6 all have polarised displays, which means that even if you’re in bright sunlight you’ll still be able to see everything on screen without having to duck into the shade.

For the water-lover

If you can’t wait to get in the pool, it could be a good idea to invest in a water-resistant smartphone. When shopping for a watertight handset, you should be looking for the IP ratings. IP68 is the best, and means the device can be submerged in 1.5m of fresh water for up to 30 minutes.

Must read: What do IP ratings really mean?

Also… no more roaming costs

Another thing to celebrate is that as of 15 June 2017, there will be no more roaming costs when holidaying in Europe. To find out all the details around the scrapping of EU roaming costs, follow this link.
