Every phone is considerably different from the other, one could have an advantage in hardware capabilities and the other may just reflect on the brand name but, buying the right smartphone is a very crucial decision that one can ever take.
One of the biggest discussion points while buying a smartphone in Cyprus is whether to check the specifications of the mobile phone or just see if it fulfills our requirements. This is not the only discussion – camera, software, brand, RAM, connectivity, and several other specs are looked at as well before one decides to make the purchase.
Step 1 Ram
RAM is the space in your mobile phone that lets the running apps store the data they collect. In layman’s terms – the higher the RAM, the higher the capability to run simultaneous applications and store their data. 4 GB- 6 GB is an ideal RAM size for a budget smartphone but if you are looking for phones, which have higher RAM then you’d have to go for a bracket beyond budget smartphones.
Step 2 Camera
As phone technology advances, camera technology advances too. Buy Smartphone today, have double, triple, and even quad cameras. Phone cameras work on sensors. The bigger the sensor, the better the image quality and vice-versa so without stepping into jargon. One needs to not only look for the megapixels in a mobile phone but also check out its sensor size.
Step 3: Operating System
One of the biggest debates ever has been – Which is Better iOS or Android?. Now that is down to one’s preferences. If you have previously used iOS then you may not prefer shifting to Android and vice versa. The operating systems just lock you in their ecosystem and never let you leave. But, there is no rule that you cannot change your operating system. Androids can pack in more RAMs and allow customers to get into the coding side of operating systems while iOS would not allow anything like that.
Step 4 Internal Storage
One of the most important aspect before buying a mobile phone is internal storage. Depending on your usage and previous experience, you can figure out how much internal storage you would like to have in your phone. Ideally, 64 GB-256 GB is what you should be looking for.
Step 5 Battery Life
Battery life is one thing that everyone buying a new smartphone should look out for. As per basic knowledge, Apple has less battery life. If you purchase an iPhone then the battery life will range between 8 hours to 12 hours depending upon usage and phone specifications.
Apart from the above-mentioned features, there are other aspects that you may look out for, depending on your criteria. These other specifications may include:
- Fingerprint sensor vs Face Unlock
- Wireless Charging
- Bluetooth Version
- Dual Sim
- Stereo Speaker
- Size (Important)
