Things to consider before buying a smartphone

Most people in today’s world have smartphones in their hands. Smartphones are manufactured by the different company and each company have their own types of features and design. Due to this many individuals have the problem buying smartphones. They get attracted by seeing the different smartphones different features made by different companies. As a result, they get confused which smartphone is good to buy. They may end up buying either bad or good smartphones. So, to prevent any kind of regret after buying any smartphones. We should consider following things before buying a smartphone.


Only having the high number of megapixels does not mean that the smartphone camera quality is better. The various specification such as camera aperture, ISO levels, pixel size, autofocus and more are important as well. The number of pixels means that the size of the image is bigger and is sharper when seen in the small screen. So we should take care of the camera quality before buying any smartphones.


The display size and resolution is the most important thing before buying any mobile. the display ranging from 5.5-inch to 6-inch, full-HD or QHD resolution is regarded as the perfect display size. Even this range is perfect for them who regularly use smartphones for checking emails, chatting and browsing social media apps.


If the processor of the smartphones is fast than automatically the smartphone will be fast and suitable to use for the user. The processing speed of the phone varies from one device to another depending on factors like OS version, UI, bloatware and more. If you are heavy user than the processing speed should high so that your phone does not slow down.


Battery life has given many people a lot to deal with and it’s crucial to consider when choosing a new smartphone. Do not be fooled, a higher number of mAh does not mean a longer battery life cycle. Screens with a high resolution consume more battery while the latest processors optimise battery life. Then there’s the Doze mode or Sleep mode and quick charging technology. You’re advised to look at reviews about the device you’re thinking about purchasing. At the moment, a 3000 mAh battery seems to be the standard.

Operating system

Are you thinking Android OS or IOS? Android is Linux–based platform for mobile phones and IOS is an operating system created by Apple Inc. exclusively for its hardware. Being the leading mobile operating systems around these two bring a lot to the table. Question is, which one do you prefer? They’ve both had updates over the years with Android having the Android Nougat 7 as the latest and soon unveiling Android O (pretty sure it will be given a delicious name, just not sure what it will be) and IOS having IOS 10, soon to introduce IOS 11. Therefore I would recommend buying a smartphone with possibly Android Marshmallow 6.0, Nougat 7.0 and iPhone IOS 10 and if you are guaranteed an upgrade, even better.


It’s always important to check the RAM and internal space when scoping for a new smartphone and not going with what it says on the sticker.  The pre-installed apps take a certain amount of space on the device. It’s important to note that even though you can use an external SD card, a larger internal memory is best and recommended. But then again it depends on what you’re going to use the space on your device for. Are you looking to store music, movies and images? Then a 64 or 128GB is recommended, if not, then you can stick to the 32GB. You can always be flexible with what you want. Plus you can always take advantage of cloud space that is like up to infinity provided you have an internet connection. But as a general rule, you’re advised to go for 2GB RAM and 16GB or 32GB internal memory.


Smartphones nowadays have started coming with security features like fingerprint sensor or even iris sensors. These are not just to unlock or lock the mobile but also used to access certain files, documents or apps. It is necessary to have extra security these days because most of the important data are stored on smartphones these days.
