7 Things to consider before buy a smartphone
Posted on: March 14, 2016, 09:26:05 PM
Are you planning to buy a new phone and you need a guide on how to make the right choice and find the perfect smartphone that will serve you better.

I don't know what you value much in a smartphone but i will tell you the things that matters more and the things to consider before buying any phone.

1. Brand (Maker)
The first you must consider before buying a phone is the brand, examples: Nokia, Samsung, Apple, Techno, Infinix, HTC, LG, Sony etc, you must choose from numerous brands.

Techno phones cannot be compared with Samsung or Apple but Techno is always cheap and these are the things to consider

2. Operating systome (OS)
Another thing to decide is the Operating system of the phone you want to buy and when you talk of best OS you go for Apple IOS, Android and Windows or old Symbian by Nokia though the most popular OS is Android.

3. Processor
A smartphone with great processor always performs better and smoothly, also handles some heavy duty apps and games perfectly well but most phone with high processor is always expensive.

4. RAM/Storage memory
I personally don't joke with any smartphone with more RAM between 2-4GB because you will never be afraid of running high sized applications and games since your Ram is big enough to handle them.

Storage memory should equally be considered because you need a place to store your documents and media files including big Apps and games

5. Display and design
Everybody loves a good looking smartphone and well sizable screen display while some don't bother much about display or how the phone looks but how it performs but a perfect smartphone should include both good performance, good looking and better viewing pressure.

6. Battery
A smartphone will never be complete without a good long lasting battery because in a country like Nigeria where power outage is the other of the day you will never enjoy any mobile phone with low life battery even when other things are in place.

7. Camera
Some people likes to take pictures with their smartphones and will always go for a phone with high quality camera that will enable them take good pictures.

Other things should also be considered before choosing a phone to buy but those once i mentioned above is the major thing you need to cress check before buying any mobile phone.
