My favorite way to communicate is cell phones because you can to stay in communicate whit many people. In market I prefer brand´s apple  even it´s as expensive prizes as others companies because your cell phones was a warranty and if you need to change in this period Apple give you a other cell phones not  as others companies as .
The products of others brands aren´t as light as products of apple even the app or characteristics of apple are as much as their.
You can to see a lot of similar products but in my opinion not as beautiful in the design  as the Apple´s products in fact Cell phones.
