Smartphones for Travelers: What To Look For?


As you prepare for your next travel adventure, inspect your smartphone to make sure it has all of the features that you will need during your trip. Depending on what device you currently own, you may want to upgrade before you head to your next destination.

A lot of people worry about smartphone battery life. Their phones have died on them halfway through the day too many times. Ideally, you want a smartphone like the Galaxy S7 Edge, which gives you up to 36 hours of talk time and 14 days of standby time. With that much battery power, you can use T-Mobile’s Wi-Fi calling option when you enter areas without much cellular coverage. Even though you’ll need to access the 4G LTE network, your smartphone will have more than enough life for you to stay connected to people back home.

You should also pay close attention to your phone’s storage capacity. You will probably take a lot of pictures and videos during your travels, so you need a device that can save all of your media without running out of room. The Galaxy S8 comes with up to 64GB of internal memory. You can increase your memory to as much as 256GB by installing a microSD. Suddenly, you have more than enough memory for all of your media.

The following infographic published by T-Mobile will help you make sure you have the right smartphone for your travels. Check it out so you will know what features to look for in your next mobile device.
