Tell me if this sounds familiar: Your family and friends are asking for smartphones this Christmas. Plus, you need a new one.
This is a great time of year to be shopping for smartphones because are a lot of good deals out there, and a lot of nice, new phones. Apple, for instance, came out with its iPhone 6s and 6s Plus earlier this year.
Samsung launched its 5.7-inch phablets, Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Galaxy Note5. Google has new Nexus phones available with its new Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system. HTC rolled out its HTC One A9. Other new smartphones hit store shelves in time for holiday shopping, too.
So, which smartphone is right for you? There are plenty of things you need to factor into your buying decision, like price, features and service compatibility.
We also have a phablets comparison chart. Phablets are big smartphones that are like a phone/tablet hybrid, including the iPhone 6s Plus.
