There are so many smartphones available that it’s hard to know where to start when you are looking to buy a new one.
Here are a few key points for you to consider.
If you spend a lot of time watching YouTube videos, browsing the internet, or editing photos you need to consider the size of the screen you’ll require and its resolution. This is often a matter of personal preference.
Do your research into the capacity of the batteries in different phones. In many cases, there’s a huge difference, thanks to screen size, operating system and processor.
Is the camera on your smartphone one of the main features you’re looking for? Then research the resolution of the camera and its ability to take photos in different lighting situations. Does the phone have a flash? Does it have a dedicated camera button?
Should I Buy the Phone Outright or Through a Plan?
If you can afford it, buying a phone outright will certainly save you quite a bit of money. However, whether you buy a brand new phone or a refurbished one, you can get a no-strings attached monthly deal, which can be useful.
With a phone plan, payments will be spread throughout the length of the contract, making it more affordable. You’ll end up paying more, but will own the phone at the end of your one or two-year contract.
Which Operating System Is Best for You?
Apple iPhone and its iOS operating system are known worldwide. They have a good range of phones with a smart look and great security.
Google Android is an open platform that allows any company to develop apps for the Android system. They use the latest tech and give you the ability to customise your mobile experience.
