There are many references from smartphones available on the market? It becomes difficult to choose the one that best suit its use, depending on whether you are experienced or a beginner user, user frantic or casual, young or old, familiar with new technologies or not? This guide will attempt to guide you in the middle of this jungle.
A smartphone for what purpose?
It’s the first question that must be asked. If you are looking for a smartphone basically to call, check emails or surf the internet, do you really need the latest style Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge or iPhone 6s ? You can access all of these features – with more or less flow – on all smartphones including the Low-Cost models (less than €200). Rather than invest on the high end, so keep the amount saved to treat accessories (protections, headphones, media, etc…). Some brands specialize in models to report quality/price, at the forefront of which shines the Wikofrench. New players are trying to impose itself on this market, as Logicom or Honor, the second most affordable brand of Huawei.
If you use further with the use of features like the photo or multimedia, a mid-range smartphone will be more suitable(between 200 and 400). With best sensors and more powerful, they are a good balance between sensible budget and performance. This product category is very crowded and there are very good products at Samsung, HTC , or even Lumia.A good plan: take a look at the high-end of previous year models, there are often bargains to do and the products concerned are of excellent qua.
End with the toughest category, the users who are looking for the best of the moment. They are the ones who snapped up the last power monsters out from Samsung, Apple, Sony or even Lumia. They are intransigent on the quality of the photos, the fluidity, the power (especially for the game), the finish and the display quality. And they are willing to pay the price. We’ll put all popular mobile phones in the Pauldigo with an iPhone 6 S, a LG G4, a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, a Galaxy rating 4 or newer Samsung Galaxy S7, Huawei P9, HTC 10, LG G5 and even the Galaxy Note 7.
What are the selection criteria?
Between a phablette 6.3 inches and a smartphone 4.7 inches, this is the big gap. If you often watch videos, if you are big fan of video game or even if you use your smartphone for Office Automation or generally in a professional setting, a large screen brings more comfort both for consultation for the seizure. A smaller screen will however be easier to fit in a pocket and easier to handle. The current trend is to big screens, what upsets fans of smartphones small format. When to balance small and high-end configuration, there is little more than Sony to take the risk with his Z5 Compact.
–The screen resolution
Here again you find everything in the market, from smartphones to entry-level to the anemic resolution up to the high-end models high resolution and even now the 4 K. In addition to ultra high definition is not always justified on a screen that remains small, the inflation of the pixels induces the screens of more energy-intensive, and consequently of real autonomy that tend to Cap.
The 4 G LTE is now offered as standard on almost all ranges of smartphones, including now the entry level. For what is the wifi and Bluetooth, they are found also on all models, just like the GPS. About wifi, prefer when possible a smartphone compatible wifi ac, more stable and faster.
– The operating system
Here it is a matter of taste. Without going into details, Android is archi dominant today (more than 80% of the market) and offers a great freedom to the user. Consequence, it is also the least secure since it concentrates the vast majority of viruses and other malware on mobile. Conversely, the Apple iOS is famous for its security and ease of use, but remains a closed system, with the constraints that implies. Windows Phone, which is gaining market share, has a clear interface and a continuity with the Windows ecosystem. And with the convergence operated by Microsoft, more models will turn original on Windows 10.
In this regard, it may be coherent to stay on the same ecosystem, and to opt for an iPhone if it is already on Mac or for Windows Phone if we’re under Microsoft environment, although this is not compulsory. The synchronization will be much easier. Another aspect to take into account, the number of applications available on different stores. And this game, iOS and Android are still leading the race with hundreds of thousands of free or paid applications. Attention, Windows 10 could allow Microsoft to quickly get back into the race. Blackberry, despite the obvious qualities of its Blackberry OS 10 and the success of the great Passport, is unfortunately in decline on the telephony market.
Apart from the case of Apple and the Nexus at Google range who banish all connections on its devices, it is advisable to prefer models with memory card reader to extend the storage capacity, and with video output (Hdmi or MHL) to disseminate the image of your smartphone on a big screen. Regarding this last point, many smartphones are now overlook this type of connectivity and prefer the mirroring wireless (mirroring). A USB OTG (or Host) port to connect devices – including USB keys or external hard drives- on your smartphone. Note that we begin to see appear on the high-end smartphones new reversible USBport, brought to standardize.
–The Photo function
Become an essential use on smartphone, photo service has experienced great progress since the first sensors. Beware of huge numbers of builders, millions of pixels are not everything. Other important criteria need to be taken into account, such as zoom, function HDR (method of optimization of shooting), the Led Flash, Panorama, stabilization mode or burst mode. Editing and sharing options should not be overlooked. Lumia and Sony are renowned for the quality of the sensors of their smartphones. The latter proposes even targets dedicated to smartphones running Android or iOS.
–The technical characteristics
The faster the processor is powerful and the amount of memory to live important, more your smartphone will be fluid and comfortable especially on 3D video games. Although this isn’t always the case, a Quad Core (4 cores) processor will generally more suited to demanding applications. More and more high-end models now offer an Octo Core (8 cores) processor. 1 GB of RAM is the bare minimum on most smartphones today, but there are some high-end with 3, or even 4 GB installed. The graphics chip is also into account.
It is the subject that angry. Number of smartphones, very good in fact, fish by their reduced autonomy. An indicator is the power of the battery (measured in mAh). The number is important more autonomy is expected to be substantial. Except that other criteria are involved, such as the interface, the overcoat constructor, type of use, etc. Also hold notifications, the screen brightness selected or Bluetooth affect significantly the consumption of your smartphone. Beware of ads by builders, they are often very optimistic. In this area, user feedback can be a real gold mine.
–The additional features
Some features may be a criterion of choice. For example the presence of a NFC chip allows connection simplified by simple contact with compatible devices. The dual SIM card slots will be useful to travelers who can integrate a SIM card without removing their main card when travelling. The Miracast function allows broadcasting your content on a screen compatible wireless. Finally the high-end models are usually equipped with a fingerprint reader, for better security.
