#Tech: Things To Consider Before Buying a Smartphone



Smartphones generally make our lives easier. They help us make calls, get directions, take photos, share information, listen to music and more. But there is one thing they definitely don’t make easier – choosing the right smartphone. What is the best operating system? What features and specs are important? Is a bigger display better? In this article, you will get suitable answers on how to choose the best and the most suitable smartphone to use.

6 Things to Consider When Buying A Smartphone

 #1 – OPERATING SYSTEM

In today’s world of smartphones, there are really only three options when it comes to the operating system – Android, iOS, and Windows Phone. Android is certainly the most popular option, since Android phones come from many different manufacturers including Samsung, HTC, Sony, LG etc., who create smartphones of all shapes and sizes. Apple’s iOS, on the other hand, is available only on iPhones.

Most smartphone users today are interested in cool apps, and when it comes to applications there isn’t an enormous difference between these two operating systems, although iOS users often get certain hot games and apps first. If you are interested in trying the latest and greatest apps, than definitely skip phones running on Microsoft’s Windows Phone OS, which has the lowest amount of apps available out of all three operating systems.

Oh, did someone mention Blackberry? Thought not…


#2 – SPECIFICATIONS


When you are looking at specs, you need to pay attention to two main things – processor and system memory (RAM). A fast processor will enable you to open apps easily and play games smoothly. Today’s high-end smartphones usually feature quad-core processors; however, some models like the latest iPhone run on a dual-core processor. If you want a device that is more future-proof, opt for a smartphone with a quad-core processor.

Most mid-range and high-end smartphones today come with anywhere between 1-3 GB of RAM. More RAM will help you use multiple applications at once, and switch between them faster.


#3 – STORAGE

For most users storage is one of the most important things when it comes to phones – it enables us to take a lot of photos, save important files, and install many apps. Basically every smartphone today comes with at least a few gigabytes of internal storage. Some phones come with only internal storage (i.e. Apple’s iPhone), while some other smartphones come with the possibility of using SD cards as external storage. This is great option to have, since you can have multiple SD cards of different sizes and swap between them when needed.
