This year, one too many mobile phone models are out there in the market. This makes it difficult to pick the right one for you. If you are not a tech wiz, then you don’t have to go through the various models around and get confused. Read on to find out more about how to choose a phone that is perfect for your specific needs.
Make A Budget For Your Mobile Phone
Though this is not the fun place to start your search, this is the most important. It is really important to know upfront how much you want to spend and shorten the search list. More importantly, you must adhere to it. High-end phones are really expensive and lower-end ones are pretty affordable and some of them are really good. Having a clear budget allows sticking to a range that will not pinch your pockets and yet give you all the features you want in a phone.
Decide Between Android & iOS
If you are used to one operating system and are too scared to switch to another, because it is too difficult, or you are worried that you will lose all your data, don’t be. There are a lot of apps that make switching very easy. If you are worried about a particular app that you frequently use, almost all apps are available in both versions. iOS is usually more expensive but very easy to use, while android is more flexible, more features and takes some getting used to.
Pick Between Compact Or Phablet
While you will want to get one with a bigger screen for movies and entertainment, a phablet-midway between a phone and a tablet, it is also a little difficult to handle in a single hand. On the other hand, a compact phone may not give you that large screen experience while watching something, or even reading your emails. If you have really small hands, getting a large screen phone may be really annoying. If you are hands are stout and thick, a small phone may be difficult to operate and type, given its limited space. Choose wisely and you will experience the phone very differently.
Ideal Display Resolution For Your Mobile Phone
If you are looking for the best display possible, you want a good contrast, good colors, and great brightness. However, some of the phones have not so great pixel density. You will notice that if you are not able to read off the screen outdoors, or if your phone has really gaudy colors. However, you will not see a great difference between 1080p and 4K. A pixel density of around 400ppi is generally accepted as good quality. This is not really that important unless you have a VR headset and play a lot of games on your phone.
There are a lot of other things to look for while getting a new mobile phone. However, these are the most important choices that you first have to make before others like, RAM, HD space, etc. Most of these phones come with frequent software updates and you may want to keep up with the changes. Do not try to change the software it may impact the security features and other factors like performance.
