With the prices of electronic devices skyrocketing these
days, one really must consider some essential things before spending so much money
on them. Because if these things are not considered, then all your money goes
to waste. Often times people get lured into the marketing trap of electronic
item stores and companies that coax them into buying a smartphone or tablet
that they don’t need.
The opposite of this scenario would be people not investing
in a good handheld electronic screen device and using cheap products that don’t
last long. This causes them to buy those products again and waste their money
in the long run.
So before you to head to the store and buy yourself a new Smartphone
or tablet, here are some of the things you should consider:
1. Size of the
Everybody has different needs when it comes
to the phone or tablet. Some prefer a small sized phone that they can easily
fit in their pockets, while others prefer big screens because they want to
watch videos on it. You need to go to a store and try the different sizes that
fit perfectly in your hands. Generally, a phone that covers 70% of a person’s
entire hand is the perfect fit. When it comes to tablets some people like mini
versions better because it’s easier to travel with them. While students prefer
them a bit bigger, because they can take them to school and have their
textbooks on them, and take notes. If you have eyesight problems then it is important
to take a device that is a tad bit big because you don’t want to be squinting the
Storage is a crucial element in phones,
because all the pictures you take and the videos you make are going to need
storage. If you are only looking for a phone for the basics such as making
calls, texting, and e-mailing then you don’t need lots of storage space. But if
you are going to be downloading apps, storing videos and games, then you need a
device with lots of storage. Generally 8 GB is a good starting point, but you will quickly
run out of it. The same is true for tablets.
3. Battery life
Again, it depends on how much you are going
to be using the device. Some devices have all the specifications that one
requires but they have a weak battery life. So you have to do your research on
what works best for you. It is never a bad idea to get the maximum amount of
battery life that you can get. Anything below 3000 mAh will barely last you a
full 24 hours.
No Smartphone and tablet is complete
without good connectivity options. Although all of them have wifi compatibility
but some smartphones have different network connectivity options. Always make
sure that your phone will work with the type of network your provider uses.
5. Apps compatibility
Some apps are only compatible with iOS, some
for Android and others are available for both phones.
