We all spend hours and hours browsing or playing games on our smartphone, and since gazing at an impressive screen is important for an immersive experience, it is highly recommended to pick out a smartphone that comes with a decent screen powered with a high resolution display. We strongly advise you to choose a smartphone that has at least FULL HD display, which should be around 1920 x 1080 pixels or even 2160 x 1080 pixels if the smartphone features a modern aspect ratio of 18:9.
Any specification that is 1080p or higher than that will provide you stellar and sharp display, and if you want to explore innovation of the underlying technology that powers the screen, OLED screens tend to have much more superior contrast and much more deeper blacks as compared to LCD screens. OLED screens are preferred over all other technologies, and the latest Samsung Galaxy series and the new Apple iPhone x feature OLED screens. Keep in mind that OLED screen won’t be available with a budget-friendly price tag.
The performance of a smartphone tends to depend on two vital aspects: the RAM and the processor. The processor is undoubtedly much more essential and integral, and the latest versions are naturally much more innovative based on their power efficiency and speed. Currently, Apple is dominating the processor market with its remarkably outperforming A series chipset.
If you’re planning to invest in an Android smartphone, keep in mind that Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 is the hottest trending specification to look for. In order to determine the amount of RAM you need in your smartphone, you need to take into account your own needs and budget, and we strongly advise you to seek a smartphone that provides at least 4GB RAM.
However, this is not the case with iPhones, because their design is built to provide strikingly different memory management capacities and they do not need a lot of RAM. It is best to do your own research by reading various reviews, and later, trying out some smartphones at your local gadgets store.
