Friendly Suggestions for Buying New Smart Phone

1. Android or Apple smart phones?

iOS is easier to use; Android gives you more choice. If you’re torn between iOS and Android, opt for an iPhone if you want something that’s easy to use and gets both the hottest apps first and timeliest software updates. Android is better if you want more hardware choice and more affordable options.

2. Consider the Price?

Don’t pay more than you need to for a phone. While the iPhone and premium Android phones start at around $650 and can easily run you $800 or more, there are great cheap unlocked-phone options below $500 and even some solid choices for less than $300.

3. Like the Wide or Small Screen?

Get the right size screen. Buy a phone with a screen smaller than 5.5 inches if one-hand use is important to you or if you have smaller hands. (See Best Small Phones for more.) Get a bigger-screen phone if you like to watch a lot of videos, play games or want to take advantage of the multiwindow mode in Android Nougat.

4. Want the 4K Video?

For a phone’s display, color quality and brightness matter more than resolution. A 4K screen on a phone is nice to have but kind of overkill. Pay more attention to how bright the display is, so it will be easy to see outdoors, and how colorful the panel is (AMOLED is better than LCD in this regard). The very latest phones offer high dynamic range (HDR) for displaying even more colors.

5. Running Speed?

The processor matters less than it used to. Even midrange phones now offer good-enough performance for most users. But if you want the most power for games and virtual reality, buy an Android phone with a Snapdragon 821 chip or the very latest Snapdragon 835 mobile platform. A Snapdragon 600 series chip is fine for midtier Android phones. The A10 processor in the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is very speedy.
