If you're going phone shopping, you might be tempted to get the latest and greatest features....that you may not need:

The Biggest Data Plan -- Even if you're checking email, making calls and updating Facebook like crazy, you're probably not burning through your data plan. Most smartphone owners assume they use way more data than they actually do. As long as you're not streaming HD video, you can probably do without the jumbo data plan.

More Megapixels -- Just because a smartphone has a huge megapixel camera doesn't mean it takes good pictures. Some cameras that aren't as advanced don't take great pictures even though they take huge pictures.

Physical Keyboards -- It's gotten to the point that touchscreens are everywhere and keyboards are on the way out. You might as well get used to it.

Hi Def Video -- If you're shooting video on your phone, odds are that you're going to put it on the web and not on an IMAX screen. So, low def video -- which still looks great -- in most cases is  just fine.
