Father’s Day is just around the corner. Getting the perfect gift for that important father in your life can be quite a decision. Instead of just the usual shirt and tie, get Dad a gift that he will enjoy using all year long. Get him a smartphone!
Smartphones differ from your average run-of-the-mill cell phones in terms of capability. Smartphones can easily access the Internet; find locations with a GPS, sync data, and show streaming video. They can be used to play music or games and to watch favorite TV shows. Smartphones usually have a full keyboard, touch screen or both. Android-based smartphones are famous for all the different applications and features they offer.
Of course, a smartphone can be used to make telephone calls, send text messages, and perform basic cell phone functions, but they can do so much more. The smartphone should be matched to the user and what he will be using it for most frequently. The new Galaxy S smartphone, for instance, is a great choice for a dad who would use a smartphone for entertainment. It lets the user download HDTV on demand, including sports events and full episodes from various networks.
There are some issues to consider when selecting a smartphone for the father in your life. Consider how long the battery lasts and think about the phone’s size and weight. Compare the call features, such as three-way calling, caller ID and, of course, the clarity of the phone itself.
Make Father’s Day a memorable one this year and get your dad a smartphone!
