Smart phones are powerful pocket computers. In addition to calling and texting, they allow you to surf the Internet, play games, take photos, install useful applications, and many other activities. There is a wide range of options available, and individual models differ according to screen size, operating system, design, features and functionalities. So how do I select the right smartphone?

What Can a Smartphone Do That a Classic Mobile Cannot?

  • Have full access to the Internet, similarly to a PC.
  • Conveniently manage Internet banking, emails and social networks.
  • Replace traditional digital cameras and take photos with a front-facing camera.
  • Use GPS to locate, navigate, or search for nearby locations.
  • Track fitness activity.

Do you feel that your mobile is worn out? Then it's time to replace it with a new smartphone. In our article "How to know that your mobile is getting old" you will learn more.

Smartphones by Operating System

When choosing a smartphone, the most important factor is the operating system. Android and iOS have the largest market share.

iOSAndroidWindows
Dependable and reliable Supports external memory cards Unpretentious for performance
✓  wide range of applications thousands of free apps Available on cheaper phones
Updates for older devices highly customisable Easy to operate
available only for Apple iPhones and iPads compared to iOS and Windows, requires more powerful phones only available for a few devices
✕ can not extend storage with a memory card longer wait times for updates few applications available

Smartphone Display Size

The display size is given in inches and is one of the most important parameters when selecting a smart mobile phone.

  • 4" to 4.4" - a very compact smartphone, ideal for one-handed operation.
  • 4.5" to 5.4" - a compromise between making calls, internet work, watching videos and playing games.
  • 5.5" or more - The device on the border of being a phone and a tablet is called a phablet, which is ideal for working with the Internet and multimedia, unsuitable for frequent calling or carrying in your pocket.

How Much RAM Do Smartphones Have?

  • 1 to 2GB of RAM is enough for common use, convenient surfing on the internet and playing less demanding games.
  • 3 to 4GB of RAM is designed for smooth running without lag even with many applications open. 
  • 4GB of RAM and more ensures smooth running of the smartphone even while running many applications and playing the most demanding games.

The Smartphone is Now the Foundation

The resolution of the camera is given in megapixels and usually ranges from 3.2 to 20MPx. Simplified, the higher the value, the better the picture. What else should be taken into account?

  • Front-facing camera - the smartphone has a front camera that takes photos, filming videos and taking selfies.
  • Dual Back Camera - The phone uses two lenses, offering a wider shot, higher luminosity, and faster focus.
  • Optical stabilisation - ensures sharp images even while moving.
  • Face detection - detects faces and focuses on them when shooting.
  • Luminance (f) - determines how much light a lens can use for drawing a captured object. The lower the luminance number, the better it can capture the camera at night and dark.
  • LED - Helps shoot in poor lighting conditions and in darkness.

Do you want a smartphone primarily for taking photos or filming videos? Look at the selection of the best camera phones.

Smartphone and Storage Size

The size of the storage is absolutely vital for a smartphone, especially if it can not be expanded by a memory card.

  • Up to 16GB - only enough for a few applications and a minimal amount of music.
  • 32GB - for not very demanding users. This can hold dozens of apps and several music albums.
  • 64GB - smartphone with this amount of space can hold dozens of apps, albums and other data.
  • 128GB or more - store hundreds of apps, games and dozens of movies. Suitable for intensive use.

Is a Dual SIM Dmartphone Worth the Cost?

For normal use, a classic smartphone with one SIM card is sufficient. If you need a lot of data, consider buying a dual SIM smartphone where the second SIM card is purely data.

!

The simultaneous use of two SIM cards with a voice tariff is not recommended due to possible network registration problems.

How Do I Select the Battery Size?

Since many factors influence power consumption, such as display size and usage, the so-called standby time is also indicated. It is a laboratory value that offers an objective comparison of battery life of smartphones of different configurations. However, the actual operating time per charge is several times lower.

Battery capacity is given in milliampere hours (mAh) and the higher the value, the higher the capacity, the longer you phone will last throughout the day.

Technology and Other Features Smartphones

  • Waterproof - waterproof phones are designed to be used in rain or water.
  • Shock resistance - with a reinforced design, selected phones are shock-resistant.
  • Fingerprint Reader and Face Recognition - Fingerprint reading  and face recognition phones allow you to quickly unlock your phone.
  • Wireless charging - Qi standard smartphones can be charged via charging pads.
  • Fast charging - Fast-charging phones charge 50% in a few tens of minutes.
  • Memory card support - Allows you to expand the storage capacity of your smartphone's internal storage.
  • LTE - smart phone without 4G network support is now hardly usable.
  • NFC - enables fast pairing of wireless devices such as wireless speakers, earphones, and more. It also allows mobile payments.
