Different sites tell you what phone is the best and when it comes to choosing one for yourself you just cannot pick among all the models available on the market. And we are going to help you to make your choice!
What is good for others is not good for you
Probably it sounds trivial but the best phone for you is not the latest model such as Samsung Galaxy S4 or iPhone 5 but rather an affordable model that has all the functions you need. So here are some details to consider before actually buying a phone.
Price and Operating System help to choose
The first thing that minimizes the variety of models is the price. We divide all phones into three price brackets: budget phones that cost around $200, mid-range phones with prices from $300 to $550 and expensive brand new phones that cost more than $750. Decide how much you can spend and lots of models will be immediately out of your consideration.
The second thing that also narrows your choice is the operating system. It is not possible to tell which of them is better; it is all about personal preference. You can choose from iOS, Android, RIM and Windows. iPhone runs iOS and Blackberry runs RIM. So if you prefer one of them you know what phone to buy! But you can hardly find those phones among the budget models. If you prefer Windows or Android you have a greater choice. Just look for the latest versions of the systems since they are more stable and secure. If it is Windows, look for 7.5 or 8. If it is Android, then 4.0, 4.1 or 4.2 is what you need.
Exclude Overrated Models
Buying a phone you want to spend your money wisely and purchase a phone with decent specs for the given price. That is why you should pay attention to the screen size, processor, RAM and built-in memory. A 3.5 inch screen, an 800 MHz processor, 512 MB of RAM and 2 GB of internal memory is what you would expect from a budget phone. A mid-range phone should have no less than a 4 inch screen, a 1 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal memory. And the most expensive phones must have at least a 4.5 inch screen, a 1.2 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory. Exclude all models that do not satisfy these requirements and you will not waste your money!
Help from the Internet
In the Internet you can study the specs of the models you are interested in and compare some models to decide which one is better. Besides, buying a phone online will save you money since the prices are lower there. Nevertheless, it is still worth seeing a phone personally and make sure it is the one you wanted. So take a walk to the nearest shop and then return home to buy the phone online.
