What is the selling point for you on a new electronic (Phone or Tablet)?

<body><p>With all of the iPhone and Axon talk, I was wondering what people really looked at in searching for a phone? If you pick other or look for more than one thing, I'd be interested to hear about it in the comments!</p></body>

    All of the above.. It needs to be the total package, like the Axon 7. Obviously "The total package" is subjective, and everyone is different; but that's why it's great to have choices that the free market allows.

    I completely agree! Every aspect needs to be looked at when purchasing a new phone or device. It may be very strong in one category, such as camera, but without a decent storage, it severely limits the pros.

  • 02busa02busa United StatesPosts: 1,439 ✭✭✭✭✭✭

    Absolutely, especially considering how much these devices in general cost.

  • runtohell121runtohell121 Analyst United StatesPosts: 2,262 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    Impulsive buying and just love technology, always wanting to try the latest things.

    Battery Life!

    They are all considerations among other things.

  • jtzmax7jtzmax7 Bridgeport, USAPosts: 1,145

    lol sometimes you just have too.

  • lindsayllindsayl Maine, United StatesPosts: 221

    I would say for me it is a combination of things, which would be screen size, camera quality, battery, physical appearance, operating system, and price

  • kennedy0201kennedy0201 MainePosts: 744 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I agree. It is a bundle deal.

    Manufacturers commitment to updating software.

  • kennedy0201kennedy0201 MainePosts: 744 ✭✭✭✭✭

    That is a great point. Nobody wants to buy a $600 brand new phone to maybe have one update before having to buy a new phone to access those new features.

  • hollaphollap United StatesPosts: 8,377 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    All of the above and more.  Can't limit your decision to just one feature or function.  I try to get the most features and functionality for a device as I can for the most reasonable price. Price to feature ratio. That's most important to me.

    With any new phone or tablet it is easy for a single feature to become a deal breaker, especially if there is a premium to be paid.

    For a tablet, if I am going to spend laptop (close to $500+) pricing, then I expect the best of everything. Same with a phone.

    If lower priced, then I expect the core functions to be good, with probably one thing that really stands out.

  • 02busa02busa United StatesPosts: 1,439 ✭✭✭✭✭✭

    That's why I said it's subjective, everyone is different and has different wants and needs regarding devices. It's purely a "Whatever works for you" thing.

  • Well certainly the overall package of the phone has to be nice, but there are certain aspects such as the price point of a phone and the speaker quality that can convince me to buy that phone and not a competitor's.

    all of the choices i need the full package and the axon & has them all zte hit the nail on the head i has it all #ztelove

  • jtma11024jtma11024 Bluffton, SCPosts: 91 ✭✭

    All of the above. Quality build is paramount.

  • nthall350nthall350 Kansas City, MissouriPosts: 505 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Something that can take a beating, and has a decent processor and amount of memory.
