Buying a smartphone? 7 things to remember
Smartphones are new-age computers. Almost. With more features and technology crammed into them, they’re not used only to make calls and send text messages but to e-mail, for video-conferencing, for social networking, take pictures, shoot videos, play video games and watch high-definition videos on the move.
Smartphones are getting more complex and increasingly mimic computers, but what’s inside them matters more than design or looks. Here’s what to look out for when buying
Buy a smartphone with Super AMOLED Display to get the best quality resolution even in sunlight. Super AMOLED has light of 4% as compared to 13% in TFT Displays that improves viewing experience. Super AMOLED Displays also produce a high contrast ratio that reproduces natural colours as seen by the eye, and provides best brightness while consuming less power.
Purchase a smartphone with a Dual Core Processor to increase computing power, fast videos buffering, smooth HD movie playback, seamless shuffling through apps and faster web browsing. The Dual Core Processor also provides a smoother experience when gaming and multitasking . It also leads to faster processing, resulting in longer battery life.
Make sure that your Smartphone has Wi-Fi Direct that connects and allows you to send data files to multiple WiFi enabled devices such as other mobile phones, printers, cameras, etc. wirelessly. Having a Smartphone with Bluetooth 3.0 allows the user to transfer data with other BT 3.0 devices @ 24 Mbps,that is, 8 times faster than normal BT.
Make sure you have a dual camera in your smartphone in order to enjoy a full 3G experience with telephony.
Having a voice command function on your mobile makes your life easier. Buy a phone that has accurate and powerful voice functions allowing for Speech To Text and Text To Speech features to read out and reply to your messages and make calls using voice functions giving absolute freedom to your hands
Keep in touch
Chatting with friends is always fun. Buy a phone with enhanced messenger services that allow you text, audio, video, group and animation chats within large groups of 40-50 members. The Chat service should let you connect with all your friends across all OS platforms irrespective of the phones they use.
Always buy a phone with expandable memory, so you can store your favourite music, photos, videos, games and apps that you can carry with you everywhere.
