Smartphones have become an integral part of our lives. It is used for a plethora of reasons, right from basic communication to clicking pictures, saving documents and browsing the internet. But then, with ample of options in the market, we are often baffled when it comes to making the right choice.
Here’s a list that will help you to choose the smartphone that suits your requirements without the need to dodge the next pesky salesperson, or navigate comparison sites.
The size and resolution of the display depends on how you use the smartphone. If you are into streaming videos, editing photos or downloading, then make sure to buy a display ranging from 5.5-inch to 6-inch, full-HD or QHD resolution. Anything larger than a 6-inch display makes the handset bulky and becomes difficult to carry. If you are a regular user and mostly use the smartphone for checking emails or browsing social media apps, then opt for a 5-inch to 5.5-inch HD or full-HD display handset.
The processor is the hub of a device and guides its overall performance. Sometimes, processor capability is what limits software updates. Qualcomm and Mediatek are the safest options. Please note that besides the processor, the amount of available RAM is crucial. We are not denying the importance of processor, but it is also important to consider the technical specifications as a whole.
Internal Memory and Space
When you are choosing the next Android, make sure to check the RAM and internal memory. Take a look at how much space the preinstalled apps take up. Although you can use a MicroSD card to expand your smartphone’s storage capacity, do not forget that a larger internal memory is recommended over using an external card.
Also, when you opt for a model with 64 or 128GB of internal memory, think about how much you’ll actually use. Are you using your smartphone as an external hard drive for your computer by saving movies, music, files and heavy apps? If your answer is a no, there you are okay with using 32 GB. You can also take advantage of cloud services to save space provided you have an internet connection. However, it is advisable that you must lay your hands on at least 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory.
Be very specific when it comes to camera quality if you are a photography enthusiast. Remember that just having a higher number of megapixels does not denote that the camera is of high quality. Other specifications such as camera aperture, ISO levels, pixel size, autofocus are significant too. Also note that the MP does not tell the whole story and it is also important to get an idea of the type of integrated sensor, lens quality, and pixel size. Make sure to start the camera app and check the brightness of the shots and software features all by yourself before purchasing the smartphone.
Battery life department
Battery life is one of the most important features to consider when choosing a new smartphone. Don’t get fooled by the number of mAh. There are many more factors that must be kept in mind. For instance, you should consider that screens with a higher resolution consume more energy, while the latest processors optimize battery life. Then there’s Doze mode and quick charging technology. Rather than just looking at tech specs, it’s best to check out reviews and benchmark results to know how all these factors perform when combines in a single device. At the moment, 3,000 mAh is considered to be the standard.
Price is also an important factor when it comes to buying a smartphone. Is it worth to buy an expensive or a budget phone? The choice is definitely yours but make sure it is value for your hard-earned money.
