How should you decide your next cellphone?
05 Sep 2017
  • We don't live in the times of Nokia 1110 anymore. There's a reason why I brought it up.
  • For a generation that was the ideal phone.
  • It had great battery life, excellent call reception, was built like a brick, something that'd last several years. Now, phones have a shelf life that stretches, at its best, up to two years.
  • So, what should we buy?

  • Let's start with the exterior
    Body
  • You should pick up something with a display-size of 4.7-5.7 inch. This makes sure that you are able to operate your phone with one hand. Anything smaller than this range will tax your eyes and anything bigger would require two hands.
  • Always buy something that has scratch- and impact-resistant glass on the display and a solid body, so the device doesn't break easily.

  • Make the smart choice
    Battery
  • The battery of a phone is important. However, "the bigger, the better" approach is not always right.
  • Battery requirement depends on your daily usage. Do you use your phone all the time or just once in a while scroll through the notifications? Typically, a 3000mAh battery, bundled with tweaks to save the power usage, is good enough to last you for 8-9 hours.

  • Repeat after me
    Camera
  • More megapixels don't necessarily mean better pictures. Every time a company launches a phone, they pull this stunt. There are a lot of things at play.
  • The most discerning factor is the sensor, then image processing and so on. However, the easiest way to choose is simple - use a phone's camera before you buy it. Proof of the pudding is in eating. Amen!

  • These are non-negotiable
    RAM
  • Now it's time to look under its hood. The phone, you buy, should have a minimum of 2GB RAM, fast processor, and enough inbuilt memory. Don't compromise on these things.
  • Prefer a handset that allows expandable memory, gets stable updates regularly and the firm has a reputation for good aftercare service. It should be waterproof or, at least, water-resistant to a certain degree.

  • There is nothing called the ultimate phone
    Phone
  • It's, perhaps, fair that you buy a phone knowing that this will be obsolete after some time. However, while you are using it, you should enjoy the phone and it should meet your requirements.
  • It's very easy to get lured into the trap of jazzy promotions and loud promises. Avoid them and always make sure you get your money's worth.
  • That's all that matters.
