6 Things to consider before buying a smartphone



Smartphones these days have become an integral part of our lives. We use them for communication, taking pictures, saving documents in the cloud, internet browsing, etc.
But then, with the wide variety of smartphones available in the market, it is never easy to decide which one to pick. It is always tough deciding the one that may suit our needs best.

Here's a list of things you should consider before you decide to buy your next smartphone.

1.Built quality:
A build is all about the durability of a smartphone. The entire handset market is largely divided into two types of builds -- metal and plastic.

There are some that even have glass-coated panels, but those are very limited. If you are one of those prone to dropping your smartphone, it's advisable to go for a metal or a plastic built handset.
These can sustain drops from 2-3 feet, while the glass-based handset is sure to shatter.

2.Display:
The size and resolution of the display depend on how you use your smartphone. If you often stream videos, edit photos or videos, or download and view movies, then a smartphone display ranging from 5.5-inch to 6-inch, full-HD or QHD resolution should be good enough for you.
If you are a regular user and largely use the smartphone for checking emails, chatting and browsing social media apps, then anything from 5-inch to 5.5-inch HD or full-HD display handsets is perfect.

3.Processor:
If you are a heavy user who needs to edit images/videos/documents online, play heavy games, stream videos or often use apps in split-screen mode, then smartphones with Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 or Snapdragon 820/821 should make multitasking fluid for you.

Light users will be happy with handsets that come with MediaTek processors.

4.Camera:
Just having a higher number of megapixels does not mean that the smartphone camera is better. Several specifications such as camera aperture, ISO levels, pixel size, autofocus and more are essential as well. A 16MP rear camera does not necessarily be better than a 12MP camera. Same theory goes for the front-facing camera.
A photographer enthusiast might want a camera with 12 or 16MP sensor under f/2.0 or lower aperture for speedy shots even in low lights. A casual shooter can go by even with an 8MP 0r 12MP camera with f/2.0-f/2.2 aperture.

5.Battery:
The battery usage differs from user to user depending on the way he/she uses the smartphone. If you are a heavy user and work on apps, play games, stream videos and more then go for a smartphone with at least 3500mAh battery or above. If you are an average or light user, a handset with 3000mAh battery would be good enough to run for a full day.

6.Storage:
Phones with 16GB/32GB/64GB or more don’t really come with exact mentioned space. If you like to keep less number of apps on your devices, you can go for 32GB storage.

Users who like to keep a larger number of apps can go for 64GB or 128GB variants. You can also buy a 16GB model that supports microSD card as well.

Best of Luck!
