These few years have been a magnificent year for the smartphone industry. We have seen a lot of new features coming into the phones, and it has really changed the way we are now using it now. The 19:9 bezel-less display, the notch display, dual primary camera, improved facial recognition for face unlock, in-screen fingerprint sensor, pop-up camera, gesture-voice commands and more. With so many devices in the market, it’s really confusing to select a phone that is according to one’s need and budget so we are here to make it easy to choose the best phone for you.
Operating System: Android and iOS are the most popular mobile operating system right now, as all the other Mobile OS are almost defunct in the market. In these two, iOS is more user friendly whereas android is more customizable.
Price: In Android you get a lot of devices to choose from according to your need and budget from low, midlevel phones to premium android phones. In iOS you only get the iPhones, so if you don’t have a big budget then iOS is not for you.
Screen Size: With 5.5 inches you get a large enough display, good grip, and easy one hand use, so 5.5 inch or less than that is a practical choice. Bigger size than that like 5.8, 6.0 or more is better for watching videos, or playing games but you will have to use both of your hands for a better control. It depends on how you want to use your phone.
Display:AMOLED and HDR is a plus for a vibrant colourful display, even outdoors. It is better than LCD. Coming to resolution, 720p is good enough for phones with less than 5.5-inch display, but if it’s a 5.5 or bigger display then 1080p is recommended to get the full high definition view.
Camera: It is one important aspect of smartphones, but people confuse megapixels with the quality of the pictures. Yes, megapixels do matter but more than it the aperture (the less the better), and features like optical image stabilization and dual lens matter. So, check if the camera has these features, the quality of the picture highly depends on these.
Processor: The mid-level recommended processors are Snapdragon 435 and Snapdragon 625. These give fast enough performance, but if you need the most powerful android processor that can run high-end games and augmented reality then Snapdragon 845 is the one. One Plus 6 is the best with that processor. Keeping android devices aside, when it comes to iOS the iPhone XS and XS Max come with the smartest next-gen A12 Bionic chip with Neural Engine inside it which is a cut above the rest.
Backup: All the phones, even the low budget phones are giving a full day back up on a single charge. It is recommended that the phone’s battery be at least 3,000 mAh, and gives a minimum of 12-hour backup on a continuous use.
Internal Storage: Minimum of 32 GB is recommended even if the phone has a SD card slot as the OS and the default apps eat almost 8 GB of the storage. Keeping the files, or installing apps could be a mess after a while on the devices with less than 32 GB of storage.
