Time to change your phone? The good news: there are tons of great options on the market. The bad news: it can be hard to know which one is best for you.
To help you narrow your search, we’ve created a list of questions about your cell phone usage. Some may not seem that important at first, but don’t overlook them. Your answers can help you make the right choice.
Are you clumsy?
Ever dropped your phone in the toilet? If you have, you’ll want a phone that meets the ip68 standard, which means that the device can survive 30 minutes in a metre of water.
Many people do, and manufacturers know it. That’s why so many phones come with incredibly good lenses. Test out phones with dual or triple cameras, and let artificial intelligence enhance your pics by recognizing the type of photo and adjusting the colour, saturation, brightness, exposure, etc. You’re sure to be impressed!
If that sounds like you, make memory one of your top three criteria. You can either choose a device with lots of space or one with a microSD card slot, which is easy to use and a less expensive way of upgrading your phone’s memory.
Seriously, this is a legitimate question. Some devices stick to the good old basics with a screen that’s less than 2 inches, a compact size and unbeatable battery life. However, these simpler devices don’t offer smartphone features.
Don’t laugh! This is a very relevant question. Since many of today’s phones have screens that vary between 4 to 6.3 inches, they often slide out of small pockets. It’s a good idea to test different sizes. Bigger isn’t always better (especially if you like to wear tight jeans).
