Smartphones are the most personal devices we own, keeping us connected at all times and acting as the heart of our tech lives. We may not spend much time actually speaking on them these days, but we use a phone for virtually everything else. 

Smartphones today typically fall into one of two categories: iPhone or Android. iPhones are the most popular smartphones overall and offer entry into the much coveted Apple exosystem, where they can be paired with Apple Watches, iPads, and MacBooks for greater inter-device connectivity. 

Android phones, meanwhile, are more numerous combined and often offer higher specs than iPhones on measures such as charging speed and camera quality, while offering integration with a wider variety of devices including Chromebooks and Windows laptops. They also tend to be cheaper.
