Technology has totally expanded the boundaries of human imaginations. As cell phones evolved, some cell phone features seem to accurately fit into the needs and fantasies of businesswomen, corporate ladies, party gals, simple ladies and most other women.
How Women Use Cell Phones
The cell phone expectations of women are quite different from that of men. A little distinction may exist within the female folk, separating women in male-dominated industries from the typical woman; but in general, women look out for almost the same things in cell phones.
For example, women do a lot of shopping on their cell phones. Hence, they have to read a lot of customer reviews before going to their favorite shopping site.
Also, women watch more movies, TV Shows and listen to music more than men for reasons very peculiar to the lifestyle and demands of the female folk. Women also tend to play games – Facebook games or other games – more often than men.
Consequently, women need a phone with fast internet speed and good view to visit review and shopping sites, and get a full view of the items they intend to buy. They have more need for phones that are capable of downloading music, movies and games very fast.
What Features Should a Woman Consider in Selecting a Cell Phone?
There are certain features you need to pay good attention to when shopping for a cell phone. Beyond the 5 features listed here, you should also consider your own peculiarity before paying for a phone.
1. Check the “Call Quality” of the Cell Phone
This requirement may seem very obvious but for the sake of emphasis, it remains the most important feature you need to consider in choosing a cell phone.
When checking out a phone, pay attention to background noise, interference, distorted voice etc. Also ask the call recipient to let you know if there is any interference from the recipient’s side.
2. Consider the Cell Phone’s Design
You will find several designs of cell phones to choose from. Most women want a classic phone with moderately big screen for watching movies, TV Shows and browsing the web. Women that are involved in business or corporate functions should also consider a phone they can use to edit Office documents, send e-mails and so on.
Based on your personal choice, you can opt for a touch-screen or slider-style cell phone with complete QWERTY keyboards.
Another thing to consider is how the cell phone fits into your handbag. You may also need to get a case protector to increase the durability of your phone.
3. Think of a Cell Phone That Supports 4G
Women tend to download and watch movies on the Internet a lot. So, you need fast data speed for faster video streaming and downloading items. Businesswomen should also consider this factor for better videoconferencing.
However, you need to first find out if your area has 4G coverage. If it does, then you are on the right track. You can also consider cell phones with HSPA+ networks, which use an advanced version of 3G protocols that is capable of attaining 4G speeds.
4. Watch Out for a Cell Phone with Good Camera
Obviously, women love to take pictures. It doesn’t matter whether they are alone, with their family or friends; pictures make them feel good.
So, women should pay attention to camera specs when they are purchasing their cell phones. Some phones have up to 8-megapixel or 12-megapixel cameras. However, 5-megapixel is still very standard for taking good quality pictures.
You should also confirm that the camera has a flash that is good enough for taking pictures indoor. Dual-LED and Xenon flashes are very okay.
5. You Need Long Battery Life
The length of your cell phone’s battery life ultimately depends on how much you use it. However, you should still consider this in your choice of cell phone.
If you are an intensive user, you may have to download battery management apps, buy a case with built-in wireless charger or get an extra battery for your phone.
When shopping for cell phones, you have two choices. You can either buy directly from a carrier store or a third party retailer.
Buying from a third party retailer like Walmart, Target, Best Buy etc, however gives you the advantage of being able to compare different phones side-by-side and select from a huge variety.
