Things to Consider Before Getting a New Smartphone

A smartphone is a necessity these days, in addition to communication devices they are our cameras, internet access points and our music players.  While Apple and Samsung vie for the top selling phone, they aren’t the only players in the smart phone world.  Each year there are a whole bunch of new models all promising to be the latest, greatest thing since sliced bread.  In fact most of them all have pretty much the same features so how do you choose your next phone?  These are the three things to consider before getting a new smartphone.

Storage Capacity

Since your phone can do so many things while you’re on the go, you need adequate storage for all the files, apps,  videos and music that most people use.  Even if you rarely shoot video you still want a phone with adequate storage.  Today phones come with a fair bit of built in storage all the way up to 256G.  While some models like Apple have limited storage, Samsung and other brands allow you to expand your storage.  However more storage means a bigger price tag.  Choose one that works for you.

Battery Life

The battery life is how long you can use your phone before you need to recharge it.  Most phones have decent battery life, but how you use your phone will drastically affect the battery life.  If you are watching a lot of video you will go through your battery faster.  Simply talking on the phone or listening to music uses the least amount of battery.  Choose a model based on how you use it.

The Screen

Since smart phones do so much and people use them to watch video, make video calls and so many more visual things this has led to screens getting sharper and bigger.  Some people prefer the bigger screens while others just don’t want to carry around a phone that big.  If you are using your phone for work purposes and are using tools like spreadsheets then a bigger screen can make your life much easier.  People who also use phones to take pics and shoot video may also want bigger screens to make editing easier.

When it comes to choosing a new phone there are so many options and models to choose from.  Take into consideration the must have features you will need, if the phone is for work or business and then look for the phone with the best specs.
