With so many smartphones available on the market right now it’s not an easy task to choose one that best fits one’s needs.
Which one to choose if, let’s say a user wants the smartphone for taking photos, or for playing games, or for texting, or for all of the above?
The good news is that Google has thought about this issue and came up with a new tool that helps users find the best Android smartphone for them.
Google’s new tool is called Which Phone and helps the users decide on which phone they need best by asking a few simple questions.
Some of these questions refer to the users’ smartphone usage and then the tool comes up with suggestions of Android phones it for users to choose from.
The first question the users need to answer is why they need a new Android smartphone for.
Although one can select all 12 categories, the tool will ask the user to choose at least three, which refer to listening to music, taking photos, being productive, gaming, social media, watching videos, staying fit, being on the go, talking, instant messaging and texting, web browsing and “expressing my style”.
After the users select one of these categories, they are asked how often they use their phone for that particular task.
Then the tool asks to choose from another set of categories.
After the users selected three categories, the tool will inform about the suggestions it prepared for them.
If the users choose to, they can add more categories to the list and answer the questions to narrow down the possibilities.
Moving to the next page, the users will be asked to select a carrier. The list includes Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint and AT&T.
One can skip this and move to the next level that will display the list of phones according to what the user selected.
Once the tool displays what it assumes is the best Android smartphone for that particular user, the list can be filtered by price, carrier, size, and release date.
The users can then save the phones they liked best on email, add them to the shopping list and even share them on their social media accounts.
Google’s new tool is in line with the recent campaign called “Be Together. Not the Same”.
This recent campaign was launched at the same time with Android 5.0 Lollipop, last year in October.
