For example, the ‘phone finder’ or the ‘phone filter’ will help you find camera phones with Xenon flash thereby helping in you in filtering the camera phones without flash and LED flash.

Checkout Cell Phone Reviews
The phone finder will help you in narrowing down to at least two-three phones that may suit your need.  The next thing, you need to do is checkout cell phone reviews.  Try to find out unbiased cell phone reviews on the internet and understand the pros and cons of the cell phones.

Compare the Cell Phones
There are plenty of websites available on the internet that allows you to compare the features of three to five cell phones simultaneously. This way you will surely be able to narrow down on the phone that you want to buy.

Buy Online or Offline
There are plenty of websites on the internet that sell brand new cell phones at attractive rates as compared to the rates found at a local cell phone shop. If you want to buy your cell phone from a local shop, you can do so by visiting several shops and see if there is any difference in the price. Go for the shop that gives you good customer service.
