Can you imagine going a single day without your phone? You can’t, right? That’s how essential cell phones have become for us.
Every US adult with a phone spends an average of 2 hours and 55 mins on their smartphones every day. That’s just an average; most of us spend about 4 to 5 hours on our phones booking cabs, checking reviews, shopping online, researching things, and using social media.
This reflects the importance of this gadget in our lives. And the more important the device, the more attention you should pay when buying one. Here are six things that you should consider when buying a new phone.
Operating Systems (OS)
You may already know a lot about the operating systems, but just to brush up a little, your mobile OS is the software that runs your phones and manages their memory and resources. Some of the most popularly used mobile OSs are
Microsoft’s Windows Phone OS
The reason to consider this is that all the apps that you’ll be allowed to download will have to be compatible with these operating systems. Moreover, if you’ve already used a particular OS, it might take some time to get adjusted to the other one. Transfer of data might also be a problem.
Body Color and Design
Selecting a design depends totally on your preferences. Some people like more sleek looking phones while others don’t. Some people go for rounder edges, while others prefer pointed ones. Make sure to pick a phone that you like and would love to carry around.
If you like watching YouTube and Netflix on your phone, you might want to go for a screen with a larger display. This enhances your viewing experience and ensures you don’t strain your eyes. If you just want to be able to connect and check your emails and notifications, a phone with a smaller display will also do.
The other thing that you might want to consider before buying is the type of display you would prefer. If you’re buying an Android phone, you can choose from LCD, AMOLED, TFT, Super SMOLED, OLED, and IPS. You can also consider the resolution and densities of the display.
RAM and Processor
Both RAM size and processor speed are very important considerations when buying a phone. The phone’s processor speed determines how smoothly it will run. RAM helps in multi-tasking and easily switching between apps. The greater the size of the RAM, the easier will it be for you to switch.
Internal storage is one of the most important factors to consider when buying a phone. But rather than going for massive internal storage just for the sake of its size, think about how much you actually need. If you’re currently using 64GB and are comfortable with the amount of space available, you may not need bigger storage.
We snap more pictures on our phones than we even do on our cameras. For this reason, having phones with good cameras have become our priority. To understand and compare camera quality, you can look for the camera’s megapixels (MPs).
