You don’t have to know loads about mobile technology to enjoy an amazing smartphone. Phone manufacturers like to make their premium phones as user-friendly as possible, because they know that not everyone is a mobile expert.
So, if you’re about to buy your first ever smartphone - or if you’re still a relative newcomer to the wonderful world of mobile - here are a few top-of-the-range handsets we think you’ll be more than happy with…
The physical keyboard is something that all BlackBerry devices are famous for. And on the KEY2, it’s been redesigned so that it’s now even easier to use. If you find it difficult typing accurately on touchscreens, this might be your thing.
The keyboard also has lots of handy shortcuts that you can easily set up. For example, the new Speed Key lets you access your favourite apps from anywhere. So you can jump straight from Spotify to Facebook in a single click.
Another clever thing on the KEY2 is the Smart Battery Experience. This learns your daily charging and usage habits, and suggests when you should charge your handset - so you’ll never run out of power when you need it most. In fact, you can expect up to 2 days of battery life on the KEY2. That’s much more than most other smartphones are capable of.
