As Christmas approaches, parents everywhere have been told that their children would like a smartphone as one of their presents. The idea of giving your child a smartphone should not fill you with dread as there is a smartphone range that will provide everything your child will need from a smartphone ensuring you buy secure Christmas gifts.
When buying a smartphone for child, it only has to do the following:
- Make and receive calls
- Send and receive texts
- Take pictures
- Play games
- Watch YouTube videos
- Play music
You will have noticed that I have not mentioned any social media apps like Facebook or Twitter as they have been used to cyber bully other children. Also apps like Kik, Snapchat, Secrets and Whisper can be used by children to share questionable material and rumours.
This all leads to the only range of phones that fits all the above criteria, and that is Microsoft’s Nokia Lumia smartphone range.
Prices start from €59.99 on prepay, so they are great value. Parents will also be relieved to know that major apps like Snapchat, Secrets and Whisper are not available for the Windows Phone operating system ensuring their children have a safe smartphone experience with the added bonus of knowing that there is very little malware and viruses available for Windows Phones. Policing of your child’s smartphone is probably still necessary but it won’t be so rigorous since the apps you worry about can’t be downloaded and used.
