Best Smartphones for Students, Travel and Work

Looking to trade in your old phone? Time for an upgrade? We’re rounding up the best smartphones on the market for students, travel, and work.

To say that there are a lot of smartphones to choose from nowadays would be the understatement of the year.

With prices for popular phones ranging from $50 to nearly $1000, how do you choose the best phone for you and your lifestyle?

Sometimes it makes more sense to look at what you do during your day to help you figure out the phone that best suits your needs.

Many college students need a robust smartphone that’s also budget-friendly, but what if you’re a traveler? You’ll probably want an unlocked phone that has great mobile connectivity – and one with a high-quality camera to capture your vacation.

On the other hand, business people need a powerful phone that’s functional and easy to use when they’re at work. Smartphones with big screens and quality cameras can come in handy when you’re using them for business – on an overseas video call for example.

Let’s look at the best smartphones for students, travel and work.

4 Best Fitness Apps so You Can Exercise at Home

We’ve rounded up the 4 best fitness apps to keep your waistlines from getting larger as the weather gets cooler. You don’t even have to leave the house!

For much of the Northern Hemisphere, winter is coming. Cold weather, snowy days and having to wear multiple layers of clothes make most people happy to stay inside.

But, for many of us, this can mean losing the motivation to keep exercising. Sure, it’s easy to put your sneakers on and take a run outside when the weather’s warm. Or, get on the bike and take an hour bike ride during your lunch break.

Now that the weather is getting colder, though, it’s becoming harder and harder to stick to your New Year’s resolutions.

And it’s not like the gym is any better. Having to drive far away early in the morning to beat rush hour just to work out isn’t any more fun than going to the gym after work when everyone else is doing the same.

Instead of throwing in the towel and waiting until next year to make new resolutions, keep your exercise routine going strong. There’s no need to venture outside in the cold just to get your heart rate up.

With your SURE Universal, you can even watch your favorite movie while exercising and control your air conditioner if you really start to work up a sweat!

Let’s look at the four best fitness apps that you can use from the comfort of your home.
