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 device

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 entire time.


2.     Storage

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.


4.     Connectivity

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.
