5 Tips for Choosing the Ideal Smartphone


There is certainly no industry more dynamic than mobile technology, every day we see releases, rumors, leaks, certifications and a lot of information to process interpret and compare about new terminals, all to be presented with pomp and circumstance.

This too much information and supply can get in the way of buying a new phone. With a small checklist in mind, it will be easier to evaluate the most important points before making a choice.

1- Specifications VS Needs

Manufacturers use the innovations and unique features of their devices as a banner to sell equipment. But the strengths of a terminal can differ greatly from user needs.

There are equipment that take thermal photos and allow you to see the temperature of the captured objects, this is awesome! But who needs it on a daily basis? Other devices promise to take professional-level photos, take many photos with the smartphone?

The mental exercise that should be done is: Understand the use we make of the smartphone and with this information sort the equipment that can serve us.

For example: Do you play many games? A good processor and graphics are key.

2 - Cost VS Benefit

Another absolutely fundamental aspect is to set a budget, and only consider equipment that is up to that value as options. This way we avoid comparing equipment of different ranges that will differ in features but also in price. This way we avoid wasting time analyzing equipment that is beyond our means.

3 - Online VS Physical Store

Both options have their positive and negative side, knowing them can help you make the right decision and avoid unnecessary spending and / or future regrets.

Physical Stores

Physical stores have in their favor the fact that it is possible for the consumer to move and try the equipment before making the purchase, and even after purchase there is a period when it is possible to exchange or return the equipment without too many complications. also the 2 year statutory warranty, which can be an important safeguard when we have unexpected problems. On the downside, all these additional services have a cost to the stores, and this is reflected in the final cost of the equipment. Finally, the physical stores usually have equipment of the best known brands, it is impossible to buy those pearls that come from the eastern markets at incredibly low prices. Online StoresOnline shops have a huge variety of yet uncrushed branded devices on the market at truly competitive prices. It is possible to buy equipment with top specifications for 1/3 of what it would cost in a physical store. On the other hand, it is not possible to try the equipment, and sometimes there are associated customs costs (there are stores like Gearbest that have ways around it). Finally, if you wish to activate a device warranty this will imply sending it to the origin (probably China) with all the risks that it may entail, loss, fees etc. Then we have to wait for the online store to repair or replace the equipment and ship it, and we run the risk of loss, fees, etc. It is possible to buy equipment with top specifications for 1/3 of what it would cost in a physical store.

In my experience all of my online purchases went well, and the only equipment I received defective was quickly replaced by Gearbest at no cost to the buyer.

4 - Upgrades 

When we buy new equipment we want to have security and operating system upgrades at least in the near future. Before making the decision we can see the history of brand upgrades, and thus realize how likely a piece of equipment is to come. to receive future updates. Another important aspect for the more adventurous is to evaluate if there is a strong development community for this model / brand. Often online communities can extend equipment life by providing unofficial updates for unbelievable periods. 

5 - Reviews / Reviews

There are many websites / blogs and Youtube channels where you can see reviews of the equipment you are going to buy,  If you consider the above points, surely the arduous task of choosing your new smartphone will be easier and more accurate. Who will buy a smartphone soon? Which one is chosen? Leave it in the comments.
