Smartphones!!! What do you look for? What Features are Important to you?

By Maraphones | February 26, 2019

When it comes to picking the next smartphone, there are about a hundred questions which you need to consider before deciding which is right for you the sheer volume of options available is staggering. A consumer today can choose from an array of a thousand different types of smartphones.

Yet making a decision during the age of options has become equally hard. In order to make things easier for you, the consumer, here are some guidelines to assist you when looking for the right device. This will enable you to decipher what’s relevant to you as the user and guide you towards selecting the best device for your needs.

Battery life

The most important aspect of a phone and the most overlooked one is the battery of the device. Phones today have the capability to do multiple things, all at once. This means the phone will require a lot of juice to run smoothly. Things such as the camera, watching movies, playing intensive games or simply running multiple apps at once all drain the battery.

Phones today come with big batteries, but how long the battery lasts is dependent on the software and how well the phone optimizes its processor and ram. If you are a user that runs multiple features at once then the battery life is something that may be high on the agenda.


A good display means a great viewing experience. You can watch videos, enjoy games, read without straining, take photos and record videos, which look great on your mobile device. When looking for a smartphone with a good display, the resolution is the name of the game. The higher it is the better your phone will look. There is also the matter of LCD vs. LED and that decision purely comes down to personal preference.


Another thing you should look for in a smartphone is an unadulterated software experience. Minimal bloatware and easy skin are what you want on your smartphone. Look for phones which run clean versions of Android. Pure Android devices, which come under the Android One program, are all stellar options.


A good camera experience means you can capture your best moments as they happen. If it’s important for you to have high-quality Video calls, videos and photos then a quality camera is the way to go and can make a world of difference.

SoC and RAM

This is the piece de resistance; a phone cannot run all of the features without a sufficiently powerful chipset under the hood. This processor is called a System on Chip and along with the amount of RAM the phone comes with, determines if the phone will run smoothly or not.
