5Things To Look Out For When You Buy A Smart Phone
Smartphones these days have become an integral part of our lives. We use them for communication, taking pictures, saving documents on the cloud, internet browsing and even as a power bank to charge other smartphones.
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.
Thanks to www.gadgetsnow.com ,Here’s a list of 5 things to consider before you decide to buy your next smartphone.
Build is all about durability of a smartphone. The entire handset market is largely divided in 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 glass-based handset are sure to shatter.
2. Processing Power
The processing power of a smartphone varies from one device to another depending on several factors such as OS version, UI, bloatware and more.
If you are a heavy user who need 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.
A large part of the smartphone’s storage is taken away from the OS and the apps the device comes pre-installed with.
A 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 larger number of apps can go for 64GB or 128GB variants. You can also buy a 16GB model that supports microSD card as well.
Speakers and the quality of audio coming out of it can be an important parameter for those who rely on heavy video streaming or video conferences. If you like entertainment-on-the-go, buy a handset that has front-facing speakers. This gives clear sound even while holding the smartphone in landscape mode.
If you don’t indulge in video streaming or video conferencing much, then a regular handset with bottom-firing speakers should be just fine. Those with speakers placed at the back are also fine.
