Touch screen Touch screen These multi-touch display screens typically allow you to zoom in and out of Web pages or photos by pinching or spreading your fingers, which gives you optimal control. Some models let you write on the screen with your finger (or stylus) to jot down notes, draw, some even on images, Web pages, etc, which can be easily shared with others. Some displays have the added convenience of being sensitive enough to work while you’re wearing gloves.
Yes
QWERTY keyboard QWERTY keyboard Smartphones have touch screens with virtual keyboards, though there are a few on the market with physical QWERTY keyboards. Some users may prefer the feedback and feel of the raised keys on a physical keyboard, qualities that make it easier to type without looking. But phones with physical QWERTY keyboards tend to be on the thick side, and the keyboards themselves may not be much better--or even as good--as the virtual keyboards on some of the latest phones. Virtual keyboards often let you customize their layouts, change input options, and keep features such as predictive text at your fingertips to help you type quickly and accurately. One downside to virtual keyboards is that they block a good portion of your phone’s display. Regardless of which keyboard you go with--real or virtual--make sure it has all the keys you’ll need, and that they are well spaced and easy to read under different lighting conditions.
Yes
Document editing Document editing Smartphones allow you to review documents, spreadsheets, and more. Some models add the convenience of creating, deleting, and editing them out of the box.
Yes
Music player Music player Indicates the phone has a built-in MP3 player. Most players have full capabilities, allowing you to sort or view tracks according to genre, album or artist, playlists, etc. They also typically have more than one playback option, such as repeat and shuffle. The small number of phones that lack these convenient features are rather cumbersome to use.
Yes
FM radio FM radio Phones with a built in FM radio require a special stereo headset be plugged into the phone to use the radio. The headset acts as both the audio output and the radio's antenna. This feature may not be available from all providers.
No

GPS navigation GPS navigation All phones have some type of location-based technology to help emergency responders find you when you dial 911. Phones that support GPS Navigation services conveniently integrate GPS with maps and search engines to give you real-time, spoken, turn-by-turn directions to an entered address, or to help you find nearby businesses by name or category, such as Joe's Pizzeria or hospitals. We indicate which phones have GPS navigation capability. The service for nearly all models doesn’t cost extra, but on some models it can cost extra.
