9 Basic Things you should consider before Buying a Smartphone

Below is a guide before buying your dream smartphone

6.Operating Frequency


Quality of the cores is important than the number of cores.  Is 8 cores better than 4 cores? Not necessarily. Unless you are an avid gamer (or even then), you don’t need 8 cores.  Below are some options  Budget – Snapdragon 410, MT6732, MT6735  Mid-range – MT6752, Snapdragon 615, MT6795T  High-end – Snapdragon 810 (2nd Gen), Snapdragon 808  Snapdragon 800, 801, 805 are also good option for mid-range buyers.


More RAM Might Not Improve Performance. RAM in phones work a little different than in PC.  Your recent apps are cached in RAM so more RAM will allow you to switch between apps faster.  If you are into experimenting and keeping several apps on your phone, you should opt for more RAM.


High Megapixels Count doesn’t mean better camera performance. It just adds more details to the picture.  The camera quality depends on a number of hardware and software factors.  The size of the camera sensor makes most difference than MP, just to mention one factor.  A 3.2 MP with Carl Zeiss Optics can shoot a better picture than a 8 MP normal optics.


Internal storage or NAND flash storage is very critical to your smartphone performance. More of it is always a good thing.  A phone with 64 GB internal memory will perform better than a phone with 8 GB internal and 64 GB Micro SD.  Choose for a phone which has more than 16GB internal memory for a better performance.

Display Resolution

Not all HD displays are equal. Despite high resolution and high pixel per inch value, you might have a bland LCD.  Color reproduction, brightness and sunlight visibility are the factors which you should consider. AMOLED or LCD?
AMOLED LCD • Deep Contrasts • Awesome Black • Bit Oversaturated Colors • Predominant Blue Tinge • Brighter • Better Viewing angles • Better Sunlight visibility

Operating frequency

Now it’s the 4G era. Make your phone future proof by opting a phone that supports 4G. 4G will give you faster data transfer rates.  A LTE enabled phone is backward compatible, so it will support 3G and 2G networks too.
2G GSM 850, GSM 1900 3G UMTS 850, UMTS 1900, UMTS 1700, UMTS 2100 4G LTE 700, LTE 800, LTE 1700, LTE 1900, LTE 2100, LTE WCS 2300 (30), LTE 2500


High mAh rating in no way means better battery life.  Software optimization and Hardware contributes to the Battery life.  New generation processors gives better battery life than old generation processor with thousands of mAH.  Your mileage may vary depending on how you use your phone,  how much power hungry the display is  how long you have LTE enabled on the phone  how efficiently your software handles CPU cores


Latest the better.  Buy a most updated software to be future proof and bug proof.  The latest software means you have the latest hardware to handle the new features.  Buy the phone with latest updated software preinstalled or the one with promised upgrade for the software.


Design of the phone attributes to the first impression of the phone  Uni-body aluminum design looks more premium than a plastic phone. Edge to Edge display design will give you a bigger display without increasing overall size of the phone.
