Points to keep in mind while buying smartphones

  • Know your requirements: Smartphone users fail to understand what features he/she is looking for in the phone. Thus, it is important to jot down the features that the smartphone must possess, matching one’s needs, before buying the phone.
  • Good cameras: Good cameras are pretty much a hygiene factor when it comes to smartphones and one of the biggest evolutions in a smartphones anatomy has been how camera setups have gone from a single camera to multiple ones. Taking the camera game up a notch are the OnePlus 7 and the OnePlus 7 Pro in the smartphone world. The OnePlus 7 comes with a dual camera setup on the back which consists of a massive 48 megapixel sony IMX586 main sensor with a large f/1.7 aperture, and a second 5 megapixel depth sensor, which adds bokeh effect to your portrait pictures.
  • Look for the experience and not brand: No matter what the brand is claiming, always focus on your personal experience or check reviews of people. Besides, it must be kept in mind that high-end phones don’t necessarily satisfy everyone.
  • Processing Speed: With the smartphone becoming a versatile device that doubles up as our camera, gaming device and even computer at times, it is absolutely essential that it is fast and does not freeze when we push it. This means you need a strong processor to help you get through your day to day tasks. Whether it is taking pictures, checking mails, browsing social media, playing a high end game or doing these things all at once, a smartphone needs to be on top all the tasks we bring its way.
  • Longevity of smartphone: Before buying a smartphone, look for battery backup, battery life, the frequent update rates amongst others.
  • RAM and Storage: Having a high-end processor is great but what makes a great processor turn in legendary performance is lots of RAM and storage. More RAM means you can run multiple applications on your device without your phone lagging.
  • Sound: Sound is one of the aspects which is often overlooked when people buy a smartphone but you do not want to invest in a device only to find out later that it does not come with a great audio output.
  • Software: Software is the soul of any smartphone which is why it needs to be clean, uncomplicated and clutter free, plus always updated. If you are looking to buy a smartphone, make sure you go for something which not only comes with the latest version of Android but something that also keep getting updates so that your phone does not get old and slow.
  • Battery: Today, brands are focusing more and more on strong processors, panoramic displays and multiple cameras. But to keep all of this going, you need to have a battery that can last at least a day of heavy usage and one that comes with support for fast charging, so that even when your phone dies, you can charge it fast and get it going.
