Major Canadian telecommunications firms still unacceptably tend to lie

smartphones
.
There is also now  some seriously stiff competition out there when it comes to smartphones these days. Choosing your phone is becoming just about as tough as deciding between various telecommunications firms or between choosing to buy laptops or tablets. Samsung S4 or iPhone 5 or HTC One now  are the most popular, but still this doesn’t make even now  choosing between them an easy task.  Never take anything for granted, get it in writing first.
 .
The Major Canadian telecommunications firms even Bell and Rogers still unacceptably   tend to falsely lie to you when you  first approach them and you do  ask for their cost of your new  cellphone Monthly service? as I discovered last week firsthand too. For they generally hesitatingly too do not answer you directly as to what the costs. hidden costs too,  are but instead  like Bell does often they do falsely try to divert the answer by asking you rather as to what  want with to do with your cell phone, or how do you want to use it?
 .
Secondly  they still do not indicate generally upfront  all of the costs, sim card cost, installation fees, monthly costs, limitations, cancellation fees, contract terms, contract period,  and if you ask them for a list of all their plans and costs, detail available as  they seem not to have it.  Very much unlike the European services where costs are competitive and fully detailed. Verizon and Videotron seem to be an exception here.  
.
Smartphones are phones that make life easy with their add-on features like camera, instant connect, video calling, email, social media, games, news, entertainment etc..  So firstly how is their battery lives? Can they be readily replaced, and where? The more expensive Apple iPhone5 has half the Battery life of the Samsung S4? wow.. in the long run it will costs you much more to own an Apple iPhone5..

Some of the things you might also  want to review first include  Length-  size , Material-, outer cover ,looks and weight. Processor and RAM- ,  storage memory-expandable?. Battery Life-   2,600mAh or 1,440mAh  or?, Camera-  Amount of MP rear and MP front ?
