Is someone on your list hoping to find a new phone under the tree this year? There are so many phones to choose from, considering all of the options makes me dizzy. My tip is to start with a list of things you need and really want (because aren’t those really the same thing), then list features that would be nice to have. When you throw out all of the phones that don’t meet your specs from the beginning it makes it much less overwhelming.
To help you get started with comparisons, here are some hot gift ideas for everyone on your list from Metro PCS including my personal favorite the Samsung Galaxy SIII.
Did you know that with MetroPCS you don’t have to sign a long-term contract? Just pay month to month for super-fast 4G LTE speed. (BTW – the plans are super affordable too.)
On-the-Go Mom – She’s the most organized person in the carpool line who knows all the neighborhood news and is never late for soccer practice or ballet lessons.
She needs: The LG Motion 4G – This mini-multitasker easily fits in a pocket or purse. It’s power-packed with the latest Android operating system, letting her pull up family schedules, email and apps in an instant.
Bonus – Finally capture the elusive “everyone-smiling” family photo with the built-in “Cheese Shutter” that uses voice-commands to snap the perfect picture. All this for just $149 with no contract from MetroPCS.
The Storyteller – He’s the one family and friends gather around to hear a great story, he’s the keeper (and creator) of great memories and the family folklore.
He needs: The ZTE Anthem 4G – The Anthem’s 4.3 inch screen is perfect for shooting holiday memories in the making. The HDMI port lets you share HD video with Dolby sound on the big screen.
Bonus – Paired with a video editing app, you can have your crazy uncle’s pre-dinner toast auto-tuned and ready to share by dessert. The smartphone is a mini-movie studio at just $199 after rebate for a limited time only ($50 MIR).
Mobile Mover – They’re their finally ready for their first smartphone and they need a way to connect with family and friends, without having to consult an instruction manual every time.
They need: The Coolpad Quattro 4G – This is great starter smartphone with an easy-to-use Android interface. It has front and rear-facing cameras for video chat, along with WiFi, GPS, and Bluetooth capabilities.
Bonus – At just $79 after rebate for a limited time only – our most affordable 4G LTE smartphone – ($50 MIR and the price had dropped to $129 today) this is great stocking stuffer for teens, grandma, or any other mobile mover on your list.
The Techxpert (hehehe, I guess this is me.) – This is the person in your family who has to have “the next big thing.” They are ahead of the tech trends and love to show off their all their gadgets and gear.
They need: The Samsung Galaxy S III – The huge 4.8 inch HD screen is among the biggest and best on the market. It has an 8MP camera with zero shutter lag and storage galore. Cutting-edge technology lets you share all sorts of content with or without a cell connection.
Bonus – This top-of-the-line phone is only $499 with no contract, which means you can upgrade your phone at any time with no penalty.
Don’t forget to protect that new phone with a phone case, and a car charger is also a nice addition. Accessories for all of these phones and more are available at MetroPCS.com.
