Tech-savvy young people are spoiled for choice when it comes to choosing a new smartphone.
After all, much of the marketing is aimed squarely at so-called millennials, and the big brands will all rave about how their handset can help you work and play.
But it's interesting to get first-hand testimony about which device really fits the bill and meets the lifestyle needs of young people.
Chanel Zagon, a 20-year-old university student, has been sharing her insights with the Herald Sun.
She revealed that she used to have a Samsung Galaxy S4, but wasn't entirely happy with it, as the layout was “really confusing and hard to use”.
Furthermore, Chanel said the phone was prone to glitching, to the point where it eventually became very slow and unusable.
She opted to switch to the iPhone, which she believes is head and shoulders above other smartphones.
“The layout and apps are really simple and easy to use,” she commented.
“I use it for emails, social media and to record audio and video content for my university course.”
This means that security is essential, as the handset stores both day-to-day information and personal details.
Chanel therefore loves the fact that all Apple products are locked with a personal Apple ID, as there's less chance of data being compromised if her phone is stolen.
“My iPhone really has everything you need and it hasn’t failed me once,” she continued.
“I use my phone for everything; I don’t think I would be able to live without it.”
If you're a student, chances are you use your handset for both work and recreation more than you even realise.
Picking the right phone is therefore really important, so make your choice carefully!
