6 Important Things To Check Before You Buy A New Phone
The global company, Tesla, recently announced it will soon make a debut in the smartphone industry. On the other hand, Blackberry OS will completely stop working from 2022. Apple seems to release the new iPhone 14 series in the same year, promising the best features.
Every day there’s some or other big news circling around the smartphone industry. Each one of them promises to fix one issue through the help of new software, which the other models cannot.
With an average annual growth rate of 9.5%, the smartphone industry sector is becoming a highly monopolistic competitive market.
This is of course an extremely good sign for the industry. The consumers however might be having trouble keeping up with the fast-paced system.
Almost all consumers buy a smartphone because it was “advertised” to them. It is only after a certain use they find out, that is not the case.
This, in turn, becomes a huge problem, because for the majority of them buying a smartphone is an investment, not a luxury.
Keeping that in mind, it is extremely necessary to know beforehand what kind of features the smartphone has so that it’s worth it to purchase.
If you don’t know what they are, here’s a complete list that will help you make a decision.
Let’s take a look at them.
If you are the kind of person who takes their phone even in the washroom, then definitely don’t forget to check out the battery power while buying a new smartphone.
At the peasant moment, 4000 mAh seems a pretty good standard, but don’t just look at the tech aspect. If the screen resolution is high, it is likely to consume more power, so check if they have the latest processors to optimize battery life.
Also, most smartphones have quick charging capacities these days, so do look for that too in the product description.
Due to increasing growth in online presence, these days people like to buy phones which have a good capacity for RAM as well as ROM.
While RAM helps in maintaining the speed of the smartphone, ROM helps in storing music files, documents, apps within the android system.
Although most people like to have a MicroSD card installed for extra storage, it would be much better if the internal storage has that much capacity.
For an average person, a 2GB RAM and a 16GB ROM would work just fine. But if you are a heavy user, a 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM would work perfectly.
Camera is one of the first things, a consumer notices after buying a new smartphone. But don’t be fooled by just seeing the high megapixels the smartphone claims to have.
Apart from that, other factors such as speed of autofocus, ISO, and aperture levels have a fair role in clicking good pictures.
So, if you have a knack for photography, then you must buy google pixels that has a 12-16 MP camera with an aperture of f/2.0 or lower. It produces good results even in dim lights.
There’s typically not much one can check about the display process. If the smartphone has a display range of 5.5-6 inches HD screen, it’s perfectly fine. But if you are not a fan of big screens, go ahead with a small screen without worrying about the display quality.
5. Operating System
Currently there are only 2 operating systems in the market to choose from- Android or IOS. if you are going for the IOS software, then there’s only the option for choosing Apple.
In the case of Android, there are several companies that use the software and tweak it a bit to meet their standards. This gives rise to differences in security system, malware protection, and performance speed between the two.
Both of them are great choices but it’s better to make a decision before purchasing anything.
As mentioned, the industry is extremely big and competitive as well. There are many smartphones that vary in price.
Obviously, this difference is due to the quality of display memory, functions, etc. But still, there are smartphones that are pretty affordable and work just great.
So, if you have a limited budget, find out the list of smartphones that are available in it and then make a purchase.
