How To Shop Around For a New Phone

Posted by on February 25, 2020 in Stuff with 0 Comments

To start with, you'll have to research your available options, in order to gain a better understanding of the various features and functions you may want. Also, think about the things you loved about your last phone, as well as about the things you hated the most. Check out the phones of your friends. Read some IT and tech magazines to find out what are the current trends and the newest phone models available on the market.

Here are a few things to take into consideration when comparing your different options:

Price – How willing are you to spend a lot of money on the latest best phone available? If you don't want an expensive phone, you may want to take a closer look at mid-range or even budget phones to see if you like any of them. If you want something more exciting then take a look at these great Apple iPhone deals. If you want the hottest thing, try to find out more about the top phone models of this year.

Design, shape, and size – You'll use your telephone quite a lot, so you need to make sure you'll be comfortable holding it. It is up to you to choose one of the huge phablets, a chunky compact device, or a sleek and slender one. If you use your phone to browse the web, to watch videos or to play video games, you may want to go for a large screen model. However, larger and better screens come with a higher price tag. If you don't really need such a big phone, you should research smaller ones and save some money.

Operating system – The big battle unfolds between iPhone and Android. Each of these two operating systems has its fans and advocates. If you also own a Mac, an iPod and an iPad, buying an iPhone seems to be the most logical choice. If you prefer Android phones, you may want to take a look at our detailed guide, here.

Specifications – Processors, RAM, storage space, cameras, and other such details can make a big difference. As a general rule, flagship phones use the most advanced technology, as well as the top-notch features that would enable you to play complex video games or to handle large files. On the other hand, paying for advanced functions and specs you're never going to use is something you should avoid.

Storage – Although internal storage can be expanded by adding a memory card, some apps can only run when installed on the internal memory of the phone. This means that you can easily fill up the space with your favorite apps and with photos. Always try to buy a phone with the largest internal storage you can afford.

Display – The better its quality, the higher the price. Try to find a reasonable compromise that would still allow you to enjoy watching videos or reading on your mobile phone.

Camera – The different phone models come with different cameras. Always make sure you check out their specifications, in order to pick a device to suit your needs. If you don't care about taking photos, you can safely ignore this feature.

Other features – Removable battery, in-built heart rate monitor and other such features can sometimes influence your purchasing decision.
