5 things to check out before upgrading your smartphone

With all new kinds of smartphones flooding the market, choosing your next device can be a little overwhelming. Make sure you get the most out of your money by reading through these must-check phone specs:

Choose the perfect screen size for your needs

Choosing the best screen depends on how you use your phone. Do you like taking photos or videos with it? Is streaming videos online your thing? If so, then choose a screen size not smaller than 5.5 to 6 inches to avoid eyestrain when watching videos. Having a bigger screen helps a lot when taking photos and editing them on your phone. A bigger screen size is also great even for simply browsing your favorite websites.

Check out how good the screen display is

Other than the screen size of the phone, you have to check the quality of the screen display. Go for a screen display not lower than 1920 x 1080 full high definition (FHD) resolution to really bring out the display. OLED, or organic light emitting diodes, are among the latest technology developed for smartphones which makes the screen brighter, thinner, and overall more efficient.

Pick a camera that matches your interests

Are you a photography enthusiast who loves taking pictures with phones? Then you might want to look for a phone with a higher megapixel count. A megapixel (MP) simply means a million pixels. A higher MP gives you higher accuracy and resolution in your photos. More than the megapixels, check out the phone’s aperture. Having an f/1.6 aperture can help you take good photos even under low light conditions.


Don't settle for battery life that won't last a day

It won't matter if your new phone has all the latest technology packed in its hardware if the battery life performs dismally low. Nowadays, great phones must come with superb battery life, one that has quick-charge technology and lasts for more than a day. This way, you never have to miss capturing important moments of your life because of a drained battery.

Look for storage that fits your lifestyle

If apps are an important part of your phone life, then your newest device must pack at least 64gb or more of storage. Plus, media like photos and videos take up much space on devices and you don't want to miss out on any important moments simply because your phone is out of storage space.
