12 Best Smartphones For Overseas Travel

Your smartphone is your most important gadget when travelling, especially on overseas trips. Your smartphone has a camera, interactive maps, GPS and numerous apps for communications such as WhatsApp, Facebook and email.

Nowadays you can almost literally do everything on your smartphone, especially if it’s connected to the internet. This is getting easier with more locations offering free Wi-Fi connections.

So the minute you land at your destination, you can search for free Wi-Fi and connect. You will need to ensure that your battery is fully charged and your roaming is switched off if you do not have free roaming or don’t wish to pay exorbitant roaming charges.

So, the question is, which smartphone is best for travelling? This is more of a personal preference based on what you use your smartphone to do whilst travelling.

You will need a smartphone with a very good camera to take those fantastic travel snaps and selfies next to the famous landmarks. You will need one that has a long battery life as your opportunities to charge your phone may be far and few in-between.

If you intend to get a local sim card for your phone to benefit from cheaper phone calls locally, then you should ensure that your phone is unlocked before you travel. Unlocked phones will work with any network. You should also be aware of the size sim card you phone uses.

We have put together a list of some of the most reliable phones that you can consider to be your trusted travel companion on your next trip.
