These days, it's so hard not to be dazzled by the array of fancy gadgets available in the market. It seems like mobile phone developers are seeking to one-up each other in terms of which gadget can deliver the best performance for the best value. With new mobile phones coming out almost every other month, how do you choose the best one that fits your needs and your budget?

The answer? Don't get overwhelmed. It may be very tempting to splurge for the newest model that comes out, but eventually there will be something bigger and better a few months after. The best thing you can do is to evaluate what you actually need, and choose a phone that will fulfill those needs. Consider which operating system you like best. If you're used to the iOS system, it may be smarter for you to get an iPhone. Despite the cost, it will fit in seamlessly well with your lifestyle. If you are used to the Android system, you have a lot more options at your fingertips--there are Samsung, LG, Alcatel, Nokia and other mobile phones to choose from.

Arguably, the two most popular phones in the market today are the LG G2 and the Samsung Galaxy S5. Singapore has many mobile shops ready to offer both models, because they are considered to be at the top of their line and offer the best value for money. In particular, the one receiving most attention is the Samsung Galaxy S5--Singapore's market is already anticipating this phone even if it has not released yet. Samsung has promised amazing new features in the Samsung S5, with a user-friendly interface that will appeal to both techies and those looking just to get a good deal.

The most important thing about mobile hunting is to obsessively and exhaustively do your research. Even if it is an affordable unit, a mobile phone is still a pricey investment so you want to be sure about what you're getting into. A good mobile phone with the standard warranty should last you about two years. This is why it's always best to get a mobile phone that has flexible features, like expandable memory and an update-able operating system—perfect with the Android OS because you can stay up-to-date with your software without having to change your phone. It is also advisable to get an add-on phone plan to your phone, because your contract will be a lot more flexible if you buy a unit separately rather than from the phone service provider.

With these in mind, you can now calmly and smartly hunt for your next new shiny gadget. Happy hunting!
