Five Steps to Mobile Phones

Operating System

Different operating systems (OS) run the software and provide a platform for applications (‘apps’).

  • Android: Created by Google. High number of apps available from Google Play
  • BlackBerry: BlackBerry’s own OS; excellent for messaging and web surfing
  •  Microsoft: Windows own operating system using tiles and touch control
  • Apple: Fast and simple iOS allows you to move, delete and organise your apps




  • Many devices are locked to a single network
  • Unlocked phones mean you can use a SIM card from any network
  • Four main network providers - Vodafone, 02, EE or Three
  • 3G/4G generation devices allow for fast internet connection on the move
  • Wi-Fi lets you connect through a wireless network




The higher the megapixel, the clearer your photos and videos will be.

  • Rear-facing camera: For taking photos and videos
  • Front-facing camera: Designed for video chat using programmes such as Skype



Battery Life

  • Talk time: This is the length of time that a fully charged battery will last when the phone is in constant use during a call
  • Stand-by time: Maximum time that a device will last when not in active use




Screen Display

  • Touch screens allow the user to navigate the device easily without conventional buttons and keyboard
  • Screen sizes range from 3.1” to 6.4”
