How to buy the best mobile or smartphone
In today’s dynamic world , technologies are changing day by day , so with the mobile phones . More so since the longevity of all newly launched mobiles last hardly for 2 years. The gadgets you bought some years back become incompatible with some laptop/ PC OR any electronics terminals. These problems exists for everyone , so I always prefer the gadgets / mobile in mid range cost so that we can buy new mobile in every 1 or two years keeping in pace with evolving technology.
This article basically describes about the specifications on which basis a mobile preferably smartphone should be bought .
PROCESSOR AND RAM
Your smartphone processor, also known as chipset or SoC, is the part that handles almost everything that works on your smartphone. It is primarily the brain of the system, and most of these processors are also even equipped with AI capabilities that make your smartphone ‘smart’ today. A competent processor not only allows your device to run more freely but also has the ability to enhance other features. One example is image processing. Samsung phones, for example, come in two variants – one holds a Snapdragon chipset (the latest being the Snapdragon 865+). In contrast, one uses Samsung’s house Exynos processor (the latest being the Exynos 990). Some reviewers explicitly state that there are significant differences not only in the two-dimensional processing power, Spapdragon is a great hitter, but also in image processing capabilities. Therefore, when choosing your smartphone, it is important to know which processor you get with it because the functionality is directly related to it. Popular ones include Snapdragon, Apple A13 Bionic, Exynos 990, and Kirin 990. Apple processors are known for their computing power, and Snapdragon processors are the most compatible in the Android realm. It also has low-power processors for mid-range and budgeted devices like Snapdragon 730 and 730G, Snapdragon 675, MediaTek Helio G90T and G85, and more, which are widely available on low-priced smartphones by 2020. If you are on a budget and don’t worry about sacrificing some energy saving, consider buying phones with one of these analysts because they drive down the cost less. Coming to RAM, this refers to the system memory used by smartphones to capture data using running applications. The RAM part of your smart phone is always used by the app, to keep it running. We will not go into the nitty-gritty of RAM usage on the phone because it involves defining words like kernel-space that will eventually take up a large space in this article. Having enough RAM can allow you to have a larger number of apps running in the background, which greatly affects your experience of multiple tasks. However, some Smartphones break all the barriers and install whopping 12-16 GB of RAM on their smartphones. That’s a great addition to smartphones, especially if you don’t plan on switching between 10-20 apps at a time. If you are a light smartphone user, someone who only uses their phones, texts, What-sApp and easy browsing, you can easily get out of 3-4 GB RAM. For power users, something around the 6-8 GB ballpark is perfect.
Boiling two options – Android or iOS. The choice is actually more complicated than you think because both of these operating systems have a huge list of advantages and disadvantages. If you’re a person who likes to navigate your device and customize your heart’s content, you’re an Android Team. If you like a simple, powerful OS that gets regular software updates and is supported for more time, you are the iOS Team. However, Android is also almost as powerful but not as simple, although the current version of Android has been much easier to use than Gingerbread days. Just know that iOS, like the OS, is very limited, in some cases. For example, you can’t download apps from the Internet if they aren’t available in the App Store, screen split mode is not something for iPhones (iPads only), you can’t customize your home screen (although iOS 14 can include widgets), and you will not be able to use launchers to completely change the look of your phone. However, iOS comes with a host of benefits, such as iMessage, FaceTime, standard software updates, and most importantly, minimal bloatware, and no adware! We look forward to you, Xiaomi!
Also, you should keep in mind that most smartphones come with their own skin or UI (user interface) installed on top of Android. OnePlus has OxygenOS, the purest skin closest to Android stock, Samsung comes with the One UI 2, which has improved by connecting with parameters since its TouchWiz, MIUI to Xiaomi phones, which is an ad-fest but well-designed, ColorOS on Oppo and Realme smartphones, heavily inspired by iOS. Remember to try to hear the UI before buying the device to see if it works for you.
The size of the mobile phone display seems to be constantly growing and continuing to comfort the boundary of what we would expect the smartphone’s display size to be. They have reached the ‘phablet’ realm with displays of up to 6.9 inches! However, at a time when content is heavily used in our pocket devices (it’s hard to call them that now), this may not be a bad thing. We suggest anything more than 5.7 inches so you can immerse yourself in games and media. Depending on the types of moving displays, you have LCD and AMOLED displays. AMOLED displays have variations such as OLED or Super AMOLED (in the case of Sam- sung) and have better contrast with darker shades. They also help save battery as they turn off all the black pixels on the phone to show ‘dark black’. Next, you have various resolutions such as Full HD, Full HD + Quad HD. While QHD provides sharp images, the differences between FHD and QHD are not very consistent, especially the untrained eye. You should also check the screen protection on your device. Gorilla 5 and 6 are commonly used with current-generation smartphones, and offer proper protection for your glass sandwiches. Nevertheless, we still strongly recommend the case.
The current standard is 64GB for low-end models and 128GB to 512GB for flats. With fast sharing and technology apps, almost all of us import every single GB of data from our previous phones to the latest ones. Therefore, adequate storage is essential. We recommend that you do not go below 128GB as it will give you enough room to store your data and download applications to your heart’s content. Also, look for phones with expandable memory storage.
The gold standard of battery life on leading smartphones with 6+ hours of screen time. Anything with the highest potential can also allow black users to use their power. Flagship phones, as well as other mid-range phones, can also access up to 8-10 hours of screen time, which is great. The goal is to find a phone that can last at least a whole day for active use. Therefore, be sure to check the battery test online before purchasing the device. Also, try and find out if the phone you are planning to buy has a good power saving mode.
By 2020, more cameras with a single rear camera are more common now. You usually find a main lens that plays a high MP number, a portrait lens, and a wide-angle shooter. And of course, it also has a few additional features that other manufacturers add, such as the ToF (Time of Flight) sensor, macro lens, and color filter lens. I am a fan of the wide lens because of the size of the photos you can now take on phones. Shooting scenes is not a problem! A portrait lens, if properly designed, can produce beautiful bokeh shots. However, if this trend is not yours and the camera bumps are annoying, it may be best to buy older phones with one main lens or newer ones such as the iPhone SE 2020. Also, do not hunt for MP, higher megapixel counts do not always mean better images because you are very much involved in producing beautiful images. Smartphones also used pixel-binning, which converts four or more pixels into one large pixel, adding clarity and detail to an image. And, for now, try to deviate away from the 108MP sensors because they are extremely good at the edges currently plagued by photography problems and autofocus problems.
