Smart is the New SexyIt’s true! Well, it’s true when it comes to mobile phones anyway (the jury is still out as to whether it holds true for your dating life, but then again,  that’s a whole another post). If you are thinking about getting your hands on a new mobile phone, then a smartphone may just be your answer. Most smart phones on the market today offer a host of functions such as GPS, media player, digital camera, email, social networking, and pretty much full computer capabilities – so it is little wonder why smart phones are so popular on the mobile market today. If you want to get in on the action, be sure to read on for a definitive guide of the latest smart phones that are bound to put your traditional text-and-ring mobile phone to shame.

Samsung Galaxy SIII - You can’t help but fall and fawn over the Samsung Galaxy SIII, with its curvaceous round edges, massive High-Definition screen and high gloss exterior finish.  Although some may say criticise the latest Samsung for being a little too big for comfort, it nevertheless still manages to pack a punch with a range of Google applications and in-built software, including the Samsung voice recognition system, S Voice. If the sales of its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy SII, are anything to go by, then rest assured that this phone is bound to make an impact on the smart phone market.

Apple iPhone 4S – Perhaps the best feature of this smartphone is the excellent voice recognition system, Siri. Not only does it actually work (and most of the time correctly), but it is also - dare I say - very fun to use. Sure, it’s not a complete overhaul in terms of design and functionality of its predecessor, but this new model does have many improvements, including a better camera and the option of a 64 GB model. All in all, it is a fantastic little smartphone that you can’t go wrong with.

Motorola Droid Razr Maxx - Bound to turn heads, this smartphone is perhaps the sexiest smartphone ever, with its oh-so sleek and super slim svelte body. Even if you put aesthetics aside, it offers all the Android essentials, as well as GPS, Bluetooth and wifi. The Motorola Razr Maxx also includes a virtual keyboard with the benefit of large letters, presumably for those of us blessed with not so svelte typing fingers.
