Seven Things You Should Consider Before Buying Any Android Phone
In Nigeria, many people just go into the phone store and buy any android phone that they lay their eyes on without knowing anything about the merits and demerits of such phone. Later when the phone starts misbehaving, they lay the blames on their Village People.
Before you buy any android phone, you should first go and research online for the specifications and to know if the phone fits into your budget. The best place to carry out this research is on YOUTUBE and GOOGLE.
On these 2 platforms, you will see both the specifications and the price the phones are being sold in the market.
Now Let's Look At The 7 Important Factors You Should Consider
RAM is Random Access Memory. This is your phone's short-term data storage; it stores the information your android phones is actively using so that it can be accessed quickly. The more programs your system is running, the more memory you will need.
Most times, one of the reasons your phone usually hangs and get stuck is because of the low RAM. You should consider buying phones with 3GB RAM and up
2. ROM/INTERNAL STORAGE
ROM is Read Only Memory. In layman's terms, it can be called your inbuilt memory. It is the memory that is already inbuilt in your phone where you can store and save files.
One of the reasons your phone hangs and get stuck is when you have a very low ROM/INTERNAL STORAGE. you should consider getting an android phone with nothing less than 32GB ROM and Above.
3. ANDROID VERSION
Android version is one of the most important things to consider while buying an android phone. Latest Android version will ensure you get the latest apps on Google play store and all other online app stores.
If you have an old android version, you will be limited to old applications/softwares and old features.
This is Nigeria, you do not want to buy an android phone that will not take you throughout the day on a single full charge.
You should consider android phones with 4000mAh battery and Above
5. SCREEN RESOLUTION
You should try and get Android phone with 1080p screen resolution and above. It's not that important but it is optionally necessary.
It will guarantee much better viewing experience, especially on YouTube and playing games.
This determines how powerful a smartphone is – and how fast/smooth it will run. The newer the processor and the higher the clock speed, the more powerful the smartphone is for heavy duty
Today's fastest mobile processors have clock speeds ranging from 1.8 GHz to 2.2 GHz, though anything above 1.3 GHz should be acceptable
Camera is another factor you should consider. Everybody wants to be a mini photographer with their android phones these days. So it is important you get a phone with nice camera specs.
You should try and get phones with good Megapixels both front and back. Even though they don't matter much but it guarantees your photos come out with enough details.
Before you buy, just go on YouTube and search for samples of pictures taking with the android phone you want to purchase.
PHONE SIZE AND DESIGN
Well, as far as I am concerned, they do not matter much. What matters is actually what is inside the phones. But if you are the glamour type, you can include that.
You can always make adjustments to all these factors if you a very low budget. It depends on what you want to use your phone for.
Pictures, Gaming, running heavy apps, Internet e.t.c It All Depends On You
