Buying a new phone or tablet sometimes pose some risk to a user especially if that user is moving from the old phone manufacturer. Risk like, after using the new phone for a couple of weeks the user might find it too late that the user interface of the new phone does not suit his/her preferences. This will lead to customer dissatisfaction and waste of money. To solve this problem we often look for gadget reviews from different blogs. Reading gadget reviews is a better solution only if the blog owner manages to include a video capture of the gadget being reviewed. But what if there’s no video? In this post I will show you how to try mobile phones and tablets before making the decision to buy them.
Try before you buy gives you the real ‘experience’ of a particular gadget that you are interested in. In this scenario, the details are presented to you that can help you in your decision making process of choosing your next phone. Information like device assembly, device setup, device overview, how to make voice calls, surf the internet, voicemail, messaging, email, camera, settings and tools.
Additionally the information that we mentioned are presented as a tutorial that is easy to follow. These tutorials can be accessed from www.tryphone.com and the site dubbed it as DemoAnywhere or DeviceAnywhere. Using the tutorials in this site you can see how things are done using your choice of phone or tablet in a step-by-step instructions accompanied by informative images.
On the main page you can choose different service providers like Sprint, cricket, virgin mobile, boost and AT&T. You can still use the tutorials even if these service providers are not available in your country. Why? Because there’s a little chance that surfing the web from Sprint’s Samsung Galaxy Tab is different from AT&T’s and other Samsung Galaxy Tab from different countries.
Though you can’t touch the mobile phones and tablets from this site, following through the tutorials provides you the best alternative of reading gadget reviews. Also you will get first-hand knowledge on how to operate each device that you can share with your friends even without touching a real phone or tablet.
So the next time that a friend of yours ask you a question about how a particular task is done in the Samsung Galaxy Tab you could just send him the link of the tutorial. However if you’re device is not listed you might want to subscribe for their paid service giving you access to a plethora of information of a particular mobile handset.
