Things to Consider Before Buying a Smartphone

Have you ever played with tin can telephones as a child? I have. And I remember I had so much fun staying up, talking to my bestfriend until the wee hours of the morning. Now, we send text messages from our smartphones. Smartphones have become so ubiquitous these days that phone makers seem to be releasing newer, faster, and more powerful devices everyday. Listen to me go on and on about smartphones, but what are they exactly? A smartphone, or smart phone, and I quote this from Wikipedia is "a mobile phone with more advanced computing capability and connectivity than basic feature phones". A smartphone will not only let you make calls and send text messages but it can also be used to send emails, take photos, listen to music, watch videos, play games, and a myriad of other things. Deciding to buy or upgrade your smartphone is easy, making that one choice out of thousands however, is a totally different ball game. Here are a few things to consider when picking the smartphone that's just right for you.

Platform
Do you prefer Android over iOS? Or Android over Windows Phone?

Aesthetics
Does size matter to you? Are you leaning towards a specific style or design?

Camera
In this day and age of the ever-present selfie, would you really choose a low-quality camera?

Battery Life
With all the amazing things you can do with your smartphone, you might want to get one with a long battery life.

Specs
Consider the speed and storage capacities.

Features
Most devices now are equipped with Bluetooth as well as various other features like health and fitness app, barcode and QR reader, business card scanner, e-book reader and more.

Carrier and budget
Most major mobile carriers now offer smartphone plans that fit every budget. There are several contract and no-contract plans to choose from.

I myself rely on my smartphone for a lot of things. Smartphones are practically new-age computers that you can carry everywhere. They don't come cheap though, so make sure you take the time to research and consider all your options before making your decision.
