I, like many teenagers, use my phone a lot. I have the iPhone XR and although it is the newest version of the iPhone they are all very much alike, which I think is part of the appeal of an iPhone. My favourite features of my phone would have to be the large screen, as I watch a lot of YouTube videos comfortably.
I love how my phone can unlock only using my face, I was very sceptical about this feature however it actually works really well! I always found it so annoying to have to type in my password every time I go on my phone but now all I have to do is pick it up and it is already unlocked.
I would completely recommend the iPhone XR because although it is more expensive than some other phones it is completely worth the price, it has a large screen, amazing camera and all iPhones in my opinion are really easy to use, there’s a reason why Apple has sold over 1.3 billion iPhones since the launch in 2007.
I am an iPhone user. However, I can definitely see the appeal of Android, the phones have really cool features and there’s a wide variety of handsets and brands to choose from.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 (and Plus) are arguably the best phones around at the moment, with their huge batteries, options for up to 1 terabyte of storage and the gorgeous 6.4” Super AMOLED display. What’s more, the fingerprint sensor is embedded into the display, meaning that you can press anywhere on the screen to securely unlock your mobile.
Whilst the S10 Plus is expensive at around £800, Android phones are hands-down the best choice when you’re budget-conscious. Devices like the Huawei P Smart, Honor 10 Lite and Moto G7 are fast, modern and can all be had for south of £200.
The Honor 10 Lite is designed for young people, with its 24 megapixel camera (whilst megapixels are far from the most important consideration, they do tell you a lot) front facing camera for selfies.
However, do bear in mind that phones from Huawei and Honor are under scrutiny at the moment, and Google is reluctant to provide updates to them. Watch this space so you don’t
end up with a dud.
