Internal storage space to the Camera and the Battery life. Use this advice to

CAMERA

We’ve now arrived at a point in Smartphone evolution where the
camera matters more than the processor, especially since most people use their
phones as their primary shooters. More and more Smartphone’s boast cameras with
at least 12 megapixels, but don’t go by numbers alone. Instead, pay attention
to image quality, aperture, pixel size, speed and features.
  The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy
S7 Edge currently offer the best cameras on any phone. Their dual-pixel cameras
offer lightning-quick autofocus and take great pictures in low light, thanks to
the wide f/1.7 aperture (lower numbers are better). By contrast, the
12-megapixel insight cameras on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus have an aperture of
f/2.2.

 RAM

Random Access Memory, it is a common term but many do not really
understand its concept. Even for old model type of phones such as those that
ran on the Symbian OS, RAM is a thing of essential value as it has its crucial
use in a phone mostly Androids for which it is indispensable for the now and
can’t be overlooked.
I’m not about to hit you with geeky terms that will only confuse
your understanding about RAM already, but let’s put it this way: LOW RAM, SLOW MOVEMENTS.
When that Android you intend to buy comes with attractive features
but has has low ram, those features are as useless as 10kb of internet surfing
data is to instagram.

RAM is temporary memory to which every app on your phone has
access, they don’t get to reside there or save their data there permanently but
they can come have a stay there from time to time. Let’s make out some
instance. If you’re editing a picture on your phone or you are making a video
or an audio record, you are creating some data which is being handled by an
app, however the app needs a something to lean on to run effectively and that’s
where our dear RAM comes in, it will take up the responsibility of that for the
app until the app is through with the process and saves the data generated on
the phone’ ROM or Micro Storage Disk and closes.
So the more the data being handled by the app the more the RAM needed,
Get it? So RAM which helps the phone’s movement has to come in a considerably
okay quantity else movement gets hiccups easily ‘because if you buy that
‘lovely’ phone with a 512MB RAM, I put it to you that once you open up to 3
applications with moderate sizes and they get to work, you start getting slow
response from the device in no time.
If you’ve been wondering why that Alcatel One touch you own runs
only a bit faster than tortoise, I believe now you know. With low ram even if your
Smartphone runs on Android 6.0 marshmallow with 5.5″ screen, but then comes the
spoiler with 256 0r 512 MB RAM, you’ll eventually hate it. It will limit your
multitasking options unbearably, and you might be wondering how can 3 quite mid
sized app just eat up a whole 512MB RAM, answer is: If the phone is said to
come with that RAM size you’ll probably have only 256-340 at your disposal as
the rest will be taking toll of by system apps, those apps that aren’t for your
use but needed to keep the phone’s system running.

The least RAM size I’d advice you go for is 1GB, when system apps
are done taking their share, you’d be having nothing less than about 700MB at
your disposal and that’s pretty okay for multitasking though not GREAT.
The second thing one should not miss looking out for is the internal
storage space. I’m not going to be writing much like I did on RAM on this.

INTERNAL STORAGE

Given that some games can easily take up more than 1GB — not to
mention how many high-res photos and videos Smartphone owners are capturing —
we highly recommend opting for as much internal storage as possible. The
minimum on most handsets, like the iPhone 6, is 16GB, but more phones (such as
the Galaxy S7) are coming standard with 32GB. We recommend 32GB or more.
A microSD card can help expand your storage. It’s available on
phones such as the Galaxy S7, the LG G5 and the HTC 10. You can pick up a 128GB
microSD for as little as $40. Next is the battery life, in fact, this
particular feature has become the talk of the day.

BATTERY LIFE

Many factors — including the screen size, processor and operating
system — determine how long a Smartphone lasts on a charge. However, shoppers
looking for the longest endurance possible should really consider the endurance, capacity and ratting. We consider any phone that lasts longer than 8 hours of straight
4G LTE surfing to be acceptable, but greater than 9 hours is better.

ANDROID OPERATING SYSTEM

Just like iPhones have their iOS which they run on so has Android
phones. Version upgrades keep coming, and the old one is never better than the
new one, they do make sure of that. Below is the list of android versions that
has come into existence since they started getting confectionery code names;
·       
Donut
(1.6)
·       
Eclair
(2.0–2.1)
·       
Froyo
(2.2–2.2.3)
·       
Gingerbread
(2.3–2.3.7)
·       
Honeycomb
(3.0–3.2.6) [a]
·       
Ice
Cream Sandwich (4.0–4.0.4)
·       
Jelly
Bean (4.1–4.3.1)
·       
KitKat
(4.4–4.4.4, 4.4W–4.4W.2)
·       
Lollipop
(5.0–5.1.1)
·       
Marshmallow
(6.0)
The reason why I brought you the list is for you to take a very
good look at the strata, if you go for Ice Cream Sandwich don’t expect to enjoy
all those features you’ve seen that attracted you to the Android brand. The
least Version I’d advice you to go for is KitKat, when a new version comes it
comes with cool features and will be able to run the latest apps, most apps
that will be built from then hence forth will be compatible only with the
latest version and maybe the immediately preceding one or two and that’s it. So
you sure won’t want to end up with a good looking phone running a medieval OS.
I believe I’ve made things lucid on that.
However, the above point are not the only things that are important
for one to look out for, if you’ve got the legal tender, considerably much of
it, it will be better you go for that with at least 5.5inch screen size or 5 but not 4,
its processor should at least be dual core with both clocking at 1.2GHz, might
be 1GHz though. But more processors means battery drains faster. And a host of
others, with these tips we hope you make the right choice on your next Smartphone.
