We all depend on a phone for virtually everything in the 21st century and that is why it is highly recommended that you go for a design that you like. At the end of the day, we have a close and personal relationship with our phones and therefore we do not want a situation whereby we have a phone whose design we are uncomfortable with. Shop around and ensure that apart from the features, the design of your phone is something you are happy with.

Operating system
