For advanced technology products, such as smartphones or computers, it is not always clear which one fits our needs from the technical characteristics, without being a minimum connoisseur. The best is then to get help, relying on customer reviews written on the distributor’s website, or those forums discussion or test products. Finally, seek advice from a professional, the sites offer more and more cats discussion, o ù  the customer can ask his questions. Or better yet: go directly to the store.
