If you want to find a way of playing back various different types of portable media players while you are on the move, it makes sense to find something that is going to give you the best possible performance.

Since most of us now own a mobile phone of some description, you might be tempted to opt for a smart phone. After all, these are capable of doing lots of things as well as playing media of different kinds. You can make phone calls, take photos and even surf online with them, sending and receiving emails at the same time.

But this can be a bad thing in the case of wanting to use different media on the move. When you think about it, a portable media player is designed for this one use. A smart phone is designed for all kinds of things, and this can make it less appealing to those people who simply want a portable media player to use while they are out and about.

Smart phones bring to light another good reason why media players can be the better option. You have two main options to consider when you want to get a smart phone. You can either sign up for a lengthy contract which means making a payment every single month to get the phone for free. Even then you may have to pay a certain sum in order to get the phone in the first place.

Secondly you have the option of buying the smart phone outright and then using it on a Pay As You Go tariff. This works out better in some cases but you still have the overall cost of the phone to fork out for.

In contrast a good quality portable media player offers a better unit for much less in the way of cost. You can buy exactly what you need and not have to worry about forking out for a monthly payment on top of the actual initial purchase.

Another good point that a portable player has as an advantage is the size of the screen. Even if you get a well known and advanced smart phone such as an iPhone for instance, you could end up with a smaller screen than you would get with a decent media player. It is these simple differences that can really make all the difference when you are deciding what to buy.

In the end it is up to you which one to opt for. If you only want something to play various media on occasionally, you may be happier with the all round versatility of a smart phone.

But if you want good playback on a regular basis, nothing beats the performance of a portable media players.
