The feel of the blackberry z3 is actually quite luxurious although it is made of plastic and although some people might classify the phone as a budget phone, we can truly say that we did not get that feel and we can only congratulate Blackberry on developing a well functional smartphone at a relatively good price for consumers.

There are quite allot of blackberry phones that are still very popular in South Africa and the z3 compares with all of them and outshines even a few.

As we currently use a variety of smartphones, the iphone 6 is one of the phones we use on a daily basis, so we have come to know this amazing smartphone very well and we can only give you our honest feedback regarding what we have experience on a day to day use.

We started using the iphone 4 back in the day and we can truly say that the new iphone 6 is one of the best phones Apple has created to date and they just continue to amaze us as the years go on.

Some of the things we can just mention offhand about this phone compared to previous models is that the iphone 6 has a better battery and improved processor and with the new plus models have the option for the much larger screen, but even the standard model has an improved screen size and this makes it much more comfortable to browse and use daily.

The general feel of the phone is great and with the 6.9 mm thickness is makes it very easy to handle and store in your pocket or handbag. When looking at the iphone 6 and its internal storage, you see that this rage has the larger 128 GB included, which offer you much more space to save you photos, music etc. on.

The previous models only went to 64 GB. The iphone 6 is also slightly heavier than the iphone 5 and comes in at 129g.

Overall our review is that the Iphone 6 still leads the pack for smartphones and while the others are catching up quite fast, it still remains one of the most popular phones worldwide, but locally in South Africa it seems that Blackberry and Samsung is still leading the pack.

Cellphone Insurance

When looking at a new cellphone contract, whether it is for a relatively inexpensive phone or an expensive smartphone, we urge everyone to get cellphone insurance.

The reason for us saying this boldly is that we recently got a brand new cellphone on contract and likely we got cellphone insurance on the phone the following day, after we received the phone. A week later the phone fell and we had to replace the screen and it worked out to be quite expensive. Our amazing insurance company replaced the screen and we only had to pay in a small amount in comparison.

Since then I have converted to always have my cellphone covered by insurance, because due to the fact that you are constantly carrying your phone with you, then chances of something happening to the phone is very high. So for anyone who is still considering insurance on your phone, get it today, you will sleep much better tonight.

All the major insurance companies offer Cellphone Insurance, so you don’t have to take it out with your cellphone contract supplier. We ourselves took out insurance with the company that covers us in terms of our short term insurance needs and we just added on our new smartphone.

When looking at insurance, it is also important to revaluate your terms and premiums yearly, to make sure that you get the best insurance coverage for your money. Not only short term, but also look at life insurance and car insurance on a regular basis.

These days, there are such a variety if insurance companies out there, that you are able to get a great deal at a lower monthly premium at another company.
