Hello! Friends, We are starting our new site: karanapk.com for helping our android lover fans. In this article we will share our view about most common problem; How to choose future proof best android smartphone.
Having trouble for picking a new phone? This article will help you to choose. We will share most important things to look for when buying a ‘future-proof‘ smartphone. Smartphones these days have become an essential part of our lives. We use them for communication, taking pictures, saving documents on the cloud, internet browsing etc.
Some people think if they choose 4GB/6GB RAM phone then it will be future proof. It is totally wrong decisions. Also real truth is no smartphone is really future proof. Now you guys ask me, so why i writing this article? Actually motto is that helping you choose a phone which can be future proof for some year like 2-3 years. Because technology never stop each and every day creating now innovation in technology world. Example: Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor was good for gaming but now Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 better and stable processor for gaming in mid range android phone. Hope you can understand what i want to saying. Here’s everything you need to know before buying your next android smartphone.
1. Build quality:
Build is all about durability of a smartphone. Smartphone have two types of builds — metal and plastic. There are some that even have glass-coated panels, but those are very limited. You can choose metal body, it is trend now.
Now smartphone display ranging from 5.2-inch to 5.5-inch, Full-HD or QHD resolution should be good enough for you. I personally don’t like 6-inch or larger display phone. It not just makes the handset extra bulky, but also difficult to carry around. In my view Bezelsless and Super Amoled display/Retina Display are true future proof display.
If you are a heavy user then smartphones with Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 or Snapdragon 820/821 should make multitasking fluid for you. If you are medium user and love to gaming then Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 will be ok. Light users will be happy with handsets that come with MediaTek processors.
A 16MP camera does not necessarily be better than a 13MP camera. Just having higher number of megapixels does not mean that the smartphone camera is better. Several specifications such as Optical Image Stabilization or an Optical Zoom, camera aperture, ISO levels, pixel size, autofocus and more are essential as well. Phone manufactures have also bumped up the front-facing cameras these days so that you get good quality photo.
Higher number of pixels mean that the size of the image is bigger, which becomes more sharper when seen on a small screen. A photographer enthusiast might want a camera with 12 or 16MP sensor under f/2.0 or lower aperture for speedy shots even in low lights. A casual shooter can go by even with an 8MP 0r 12MP camera with f/2.0-f/2.2 aperture. f/1.7 aperture also good for low light photography.
Now on going camera trend is dual rear camera and single/dual front camera for Depth Effect like Bokeh Effect or Portrait Mode. You should go for it. Also 4K, 1080p, slow motion video recording option make your phone future proof.
If you are an average or light user, a handset with 3000mAh battery would be good enough to run for a full day. If you are a heavy user and work on apps, play games, stream videos and more then go for a smartphone with at least 3500mAh battery or above. Fast or turbo charging system will make it future proof.
6. User interface/OS version:
User interface and the OS version too are key factors to consider while choosing a good smartphone. For the most basic and pure Android experience you can buy Motorola handsets, Nexus/Pixel smartphones or even Android One devices. Always choose pure Android before you pick one.
64GB or 128GB storage variants will be good. You can also buy a 16GB model that supports dedicated microSD card as well.
Most smartphones these days have started coming with extra security features such as fingerprint sensor or face recognition system. These are not just to lock/unlock a handset but as a password to access certain files, documents or apps.
If you like entertainment-on-the-go, buy a handset that has front-facing speakers. This gives clear sound even while holding the smartphone in landscape mode. If you don’t indulge in video streaming or video conferencing much, then a regular handset with bottom-firing speakers should be just fine. Those with speakers placed at the back are also fine.
If you are heavy music lover then choose dolby/boom/dts sound audio system phone but it is not a main issue.
10. Headphone jack/USB port:
Both micro-USB and USB Type-C ports are available in smartphones these days, it is preferable to switch to USB Type-C not just because it is easy to plug in but also it is future-proof.
