Your Guide to Purchasing an Amazing Cell Phone
Hot Tips for Smartphone Enthusiasts
Written By: Cassandra Bondie
Finding the right smartphone can be difficult, especially when you aren't sure what you're looking to purchase. In this article, we're going to walk you through our short list of hot tips to find an Amazing Cell Phone that will last.
Pick Your Brand
Are you interested in an iOS smartphone or an Android smartphone? While iPhones are generally easier to use and come with less bloatware, Android smartphones allow for more personalization and affordable, third-party repairs. For an affordable iPhone, we suggest nabbing an iPhone 6 or 7 while thousands of users are preparing to upgrade to the iPhone 8 and iPhone X. For a reasonable Android smartphone, try the Samsung Galaxy S6 or S7. You can try the brand without making a significant investment.
Maybe you don't want an iOS or Samsung phone. There are other Amazing Cell Phone designers to choose from, including LG, Amazon, and Lenovo. Before making a purchase, follow the other steps in this article to ensure you walk away with a quality piece of digital equipment.
Choose Your Budget
After deciding what brand interests you, determine what kind of budget you'd like to follow. Do you want to establish a payment plan for your smartphone - or do you want something you can pay for out-of-pocket? For budgets between $100 and $300, quality LG and Lenovo Android devices are available. You could also purchase an iPhone 4, iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S4, or Samsung Galaxy S5. For budgets between $400 and $600, you can walk away with a Google Pixel, an iPhone 6, an iPhone 7, or a Samsung Galaxy S7. For budgets larger than $600, we suggest trying new releases from Samsung and Apple, including the iPhone 8, iPhone X, and Samsung Galaxy S8.
Determine Your Optimum Screen Size
After you've found a brand and a budget, think about the size of your screen. When you picture yourself holding an Amazing Cell Phone, how much space does it take up? Will you need a stylus or can you type one-handed? Does the phone have an edge-design? We suggest purchasing a smartphone with a screen smaller than 5.5 inches if one-hand use it important. Larger phones, with screen sizes ranging from six to seven inches, require both hands. However, these phones generally offer better graphics for game and application display.
Pay Attention to Display Quality
Most smartphone users pay close attention to resolution rather than display, color quality, or brightness. You want to see how bright (and dim) the screen can get, how dynamic the color range is, and how well applications perform. Resolution is only part of the story - and not even the important part.
Understand What Really Matters
You might think processing speed and camera megapixels are the way of the world - but you can ignore both. Smartphone processors matter far less than other specs - one, for example, being storage space. Both upper and mid-range phones offer acceptable processor performance for most users. Good processing power has become the standard, rather than the exception. Of course, if you want to download dozens of video games and virtual reality applications, you'll want a speedy (and likely more expensive) smartphone. Otherwise, anything goes.
Camera megapixels are also non-essential. You'll want to look closely for low aperture numbers and special features like dual lenses. Megapixels themselves don't tell the whole story.
On the other hand, there are certain specs that require your immediate attention, including battery and storage capacity. A phone with less than 32GB of storage won't allow for many applications, videos, or photos. Since storage space is a relatively inexpensive addition, put your money where it matters. Also, owning a long-lasting phone is preferred. Push yourself in this direction by finding an Amazing Cell Phone with a battery capacity of less than three thousand mAh.
Follow these tips and you'll have an Amazing Cell Phone in no time.
