consider buying new phone

Want to buy a new phone? You are at the right place. The temptation to buy a flagship is real and can lead to hell if you don’t need it. Just get something you need and thank us later. But how do you know what you need? Don’t worry. We are here to help. We have sampled the basic things you should consider when buying a new phone.


Smartphones come with a lot of functions that affect their batteries. However, most smartphone producers have done their best to ensure that their batteries last longer. So if you are an average smartphone user, you can go for a phone that has at least 3000mAH. But if you like to go heavy with your usage, don’t go for a phone that has less than 4000mAH. This will help you go the whole day with a single charge.

Consider buying a phone that has the quick charging feature too. This comes in handy when you are in a hurry and still need that phone charged to a manageable percentage.


A phone that can help you perform more functions at the same time without having to freeze is always better. Go for a phone that has at least 2GB RAM. If you like gaming with your phone and performing a lot of graphic functions, go for 3GB RAM and above.


Several specifications such as camera aperture, ISO levels, pixel size, autofocus and more are essential and not just the pixels. So check the other features when going for a phone because of its camera, and not just the number of pixels.

Memory Capacity

Most phones now do not come below 16GB. However, I’ll advise that you go for a phone that has 32GB memory if you love to save a lot of stuff on your phone. Majority of the phone space in 16GB smartphones are used to save the device’s settings and OS. Therefore, going for 32GB means more space for your pictures and many more. For flagships, the new standard is 64 GB.

Even if the phone doesn’t have enough memory, check if the device has an SD slot to help you expand its memory with an SD card instantly.


What are people saying about the phone you want to buy? It may not be as perfect as you think, after all. You can read from our various reviews on smartphones or check out consumer reviews online. Make sure you read well before you make that move.

Don’t just go for any phone because it looks fashionable. Know what you are buying and why you are making that choice. That is what defines true value.
