1.Phone operating system
We often focus on the hardware performance, take a look at the various new phone conferences, almost show up how much G ROM, RAM; “XXX” processor, “XXX” technology and so on. But in fact, what we actually have the most contact is the phone system (or OS). The hardware performance goes up, but the system have a bad upgrade, or the system with many bugs, this is not user-friendly.
There are only two Operating Systems (OS) to choose from – Android or iOS. In terms of the perfection of the system itself, iOS is of course the first recommendation one. If you opt for iOS, then you are by default opting for an Apple iPhone. All other smartphone makers function on the Android OS. How about Android? After a long temptation, the domestic Xiaomi MIUI and Meizu Flyme are doing a little better. Native Android is good, but because Google services are not available in many countries, so the third-party Android with a better localization, is actually more convenient.
2. Battery life of mobile phone
Are you the kind of user who is addicted to phone games, or likely to have multiple apps open simultaneously? Do you see yourself being a heavy consumer of video-streaming apps? Heavy online usage tends to drain batteries faster. If you belong to this kind of phone users, it is better to choose a phone with a long-lasting battery.
Cell phones have two types of memory – Random Access Memory (RAM) and Read Only Memory (ROM). RAM, along with the processor of your phone, determines the speed of the phone and its ease of operation. ROM is what most people refer to as storage. This is the memory that is used to store the OS, apps and all the videos, photos and songs that you want to store on the phone. Therefore, it stands to reason that phones with higher RAM will be faster and those with higher ROM will have more storage. An common user should may be satisfy with a 2 GB RAM and 16 GB ROM. But if you are a recreation-oriented user, please go for a phone with at least 3-4 GB RAM and 64-128 GB ROM. To extend your ROM you can also use a micro SD memory card, but remember, apps that are stored and run from memory cards tend to be slower, and many phones have no micro SD card slot. Please note these problem.
4.The camera of smartphone
There is a lot of advertise about built-in cameras, on-screen cameras on phones with brands trying to catch up each other by offering more megapixels. Don’t let this phenomenon fool you. By itself, a camera with more megapixels do not the only result in better images. Besides megapixels, good quality photos are a function of factors like ISO levels, aperture as well as the speed of autofocus. If you are likely to take a lot of pictures, then go for a phone with a 12 or 16 MP camera that has an aperture of f/2.0 or lower, for good results even in low light. If your not use of the camera frequently, a phone with an 8-12 MP camera and aperture of f/2.2 should be fine for you.
5.The price of the phone
Smartphones come at price points are vary greatly. The prices tend to go up as you go higher up the value chain in terms of processor speeds, memory, camera and display. But don’t let your budget to stop from buying the smartphone you really want. You can choose a suitable time, like Gearbest Mid-Year Mega Sale kicks off on June 5th. All great product Up to 80% OFF!
