If you think that buying a phone was easy at first then you are confused, it was difficult earlier and even more so today. The main reasons for this are – technology and a lot of options.
What do you want?
Before buying a smartphone, tie one important thing, such a phone as needed. You buy the product according to your use. Do not get caught in an affair of appearances. And absolutely avoid copying your friends. Because the phone is very private. You have to use it. Apart from this, it is also a kind of investment, that is, a wrong decision and your money is lost. Keeping in mind the parameters like camera, processor, RAM, battery, and brand, you choose your new phone, and most important is the budget.
Convenience and money have a unique connection. It is the same with smartphones, the more money you invest, the better the phone will get. But the important question is what is your budget? Officially there is no fixed price segment, but we have tried to make it easy for you.
Cheap usable smartphones come in the range of 5,000 to 10,000 rupees. Modern smartphones between Rs 10,000 and Rs 15,000 are equipped with many important features. 15,000 to 30,000 rupees range is considered as a mid-range segment.
However, there is a considerable difference in the features of the products in this range which depends on different brands. Above Rs 30,000, you start getting high-end smartphones including flagship-level devices. Some flagship handsets and mobiles with unique high-end features are also available for between Rs 40,000 and 65,000.
Choosing a brand is an important step before buying a smartphone, as many things depend on it. Software updates and customer support services are trusted with renowned brands. This is probably the reason why most users prefer to go with a big brand.
First of all, the products of these brands are easily available in the market. Be it an e-commerce website or retail market, you can shop from both places at your convenience.
Today there are many companies in the market. You must have heard the names of brands like Samsung, Apple, Sony, Xiaomi, and Lenovo but after the arrival of many foreign companies, the options for customers have become even greater.
In such a situation, the most important thing is that the brand of the phone you are taking, does it have a customer care center in your city. Also, what is the feedback from the old users of that brand is also an important source in choosing the correct mobile brand of your future smartphone.
Google’s Android, Apple’s iOS, Microsoft’s Windows Mobile, and BlackBerry OS 10, there are many options for you. Every operating system has many features and some drawbacks. Android platform is superhit in India and also has the highest market share. And being open-source nature, many mobile brands are making phones on this operating system.
Most third-party apps are available for iOS and Android platforms. But due to the high cost of iOS-based iPhone, it does not fit everyone’s pocket. At the same time, Android-based smartphones are available in every price segment.
If your mind is filled with both these operating systems then you can use Microsoft’s Windows Mobile OS. The market report of this product has also been positive in terms of performance. However, there are fewer third-party apps on Windows Mobile than iOS or Android. Apart from all these, before buying the phone, please check what is the version of the operating system you get. You will never want your device to work on an older version of Android or Windows Mobile.
The screen size of a mobile phone is measured diagonally. Today, most of the smartphones are of 4 to 6.5 inches in screen size. A smartphone with a 4-5 inch screen is considered better, keeping it in the hands is also very comfortable.
However, it will depend on what screen you want. If you are accustomed to the small screen then a 4-5 inch display is right for you. Some people like larger displays, there are many options in the market for them too.
Apart from this, the resolution is also an important factor. In terms of resolution, the quality of the image shown on the screen of your smartphone is determined by it. There can be many user configurations regarding the screen size, but the situation is clear in terms of resolution. The higher the resolution, the better.
If you are taking a device with a 4.5–5-inch display, then its resolution should be at least 720 pixels. Handsets with a display larger than 5 inches require full-HD resolution (1020 pixels), it may be that the mobile user experience is not great when it is low. It should also be noted that the resolution also directly affects battery life. Higher-resolution screens consume more battery.
Battery life is the most important property to answer on how to choose a smartphone that is best for you? These days, phones come with removable and non-removable batteries. Smartphones that use non-removable batteries are sleeker.
There are some other advantages with a non-removable battery, the back cover is more secure and the chances of water entering and damaging the phone are also reduced. But it is not at all that they are completely waterproof. Some users consider removable batteries to be beneficial, as they prefer to carry additional batteries.
When the first battery runs out. Let’s change it to another one. But now when power banks are available in the market, there is no point in carrying a separate battery. The size of the battery also becomes important.
The larger the battery, the higher the expected running time of the smartphone. However, we have said many times before that the battery life of the smartphone does not get better due to just having more mAh battery. You can read more about it in our review. The weight of the smartphone also increases as the battery size increases. Before buying the phone, also know about its talk time and standby time.
If a good camera is also the motive behind buying a smartphone, then get complete information about the resolution, rear camera, front camera, LED flash, autofocus, and video recording. The 5-megapixel rear camera is considered a basic feature in today’s date, the cameras below this are absolutely useless for photography.
If you are fond of taking selfies or even do video chatting, then do research about the front camera as well. For a good selfie, you will need a front camera of at least 5 megapixels, but 2 megapixels will also work. Make it clear that you should not make the mistake of estimating the performance of the smartphone’s camera just by looking at the megapixels.
Taking care of these things, you can buy a good smartphone for yourself. If you are missing out on any points and do a thorough reading of this helpful article. All the best! We hope you get the smartphone which is best for you.
