Choosing your Mobile Phone

409-BLU-Dash-cell-phoneFeature phones versus smartphones

There are essentially two types of mobile phones that you can choose – feature phones and smartphones. Feature phones used to be popular but with the plummeting prices of smartphones, most people opt for the latter now. Feature phones are those basic phones that come with keypads (QWERTY or others) and smartphones are the ones where everything is on the screen – these are completely touch based. The smartphones come packed with more features and have become essential in today’s world.

 

Larger screen size is more fun

The screen size matters a lot in cell phones. You can opt for smaller screens, medium screens and larger screens. It is best to opt for a screen size that you are comfortable managing – too small or too large may not be the most convenient option. At the same time, larger screens allow you to watch images and videos with more clarity. This is a useful feature especially if you are into watching a lot of videos. All the phones prominently display the screen sizes because this is one of the biggest selling points of mobile phones.

 

Screen resolution for better media

The screen resolution is another point for you to consider because once you start using your phone, you will definitely use it for playing games and watching images and videos. From LCD displays to retina display to AMOLED and Super AMOLED displays, some of the modern phones really pack a punch. As of now, Super AMOLED offers among the best displays possible in mobile phones. However, if you are looking at feature phones, AMOLED is not the technology you will have access to because the screens of these phones are usually TFT screens.

The processor or CPU is as integral to a smartphone as it is to a computer. Faster the processor, smoother is the phone experience, including flipping through menus, playing games and opening and running all the phone applications. Once you decide on your budget for buying your smartphone, you should look for the best processor within that price range and opt for it.

 

Selfies and more with the camera

The camera has become the biggest selling point in smartphones and some of the phones come packed with the best cameras possible. Even the inexpensive mobile phones now come with 5MP cameras and this is one point for you to note carefully. Just note that it is not just the megapixel value that determines how good a mobile phone camera is. You should go through the reviews of the phones and only then will you come to know how good the camera of a particular phone is. Also, you may want to consider a phone with a front camera so that you can click those selfies and share with the world. Needless to say, the front camera also need to be good enough so that the selfies are of good quality.

 

Buy mobile phone thinking about future technology

While many people don’t take this point into account, the type of network capability is an important point to consider these days. There are mobile phones that support CDMA, GSM, 4G and LTE and so on. You should always look at the future technologies in mobile phones and buy for the future.

 

Points to consider in smartphones

Of course, if you are planning to buy a smartphone, the points below make a lot of sense.

 

RAM – The higher the RAM value, faster will be your phone.

 

Extra storage – See if you can add a separate microSD card to add storage to your phone.

 

Battery – 3,000MAh battery is an excellent option. You should also check if you can remove the battery.

 

NFC – NFC or Near-Field Communication allows faster data exchange between devices when there is a short distance between them.

 

Fingerprint scanner – This is a security feature that allows no one except you to unlock your phone.
