LOUISVILLE Ky (WHAS11) -- Last week, Samsung shook up the smartphone market with the debut of its Galaxy S4.

The smartphone field is extremely crowded and may be daunting for shoppers, but there are a few things to help you choose your perfect fit.

Apple's easy interface makes it popular especially among novice smartphone users. Android phones boast a greater diversity in hardware and more variety in screen size like the Galaxy S4, for example, which increased its size. 

Blackberry remains popular for business and also for those who prefer a physical keyboard over touch screen.

The Live Tile Interface of a Windows phone makes it user friendly and helps users find what they need with fewer steps.

Smartphones are quickly becoming the go-to device for photos and videos and people are ditching traditional cameras in favor of the one on their phone. Consumer Reports Electronics editor Paul Reynolds said in order to do this, people should be looking for a camera that has at least five if not eight megapixels of resolution and has a lot of the enhancements for sharing.

He also warned that a new phone with more bells and whistles needs a data plan that can handle it so make sure to review yours to avoid overage fees.
