Things to look after while buying a smartphone
Smartphones have infiltrated practically every aspect of our digitally enhanced existence. Smartphones are becoming more popular, and the variety of options available is expanding. Choosing a smartphone from such a large list of alternatives might be difficult, so we created a guide to assist you in selecting the ideal smartphone for your needs.
THE FIRST THING WE SHOULD LOOK FOR IS THE PROCESSOR AND RAM PERFORMANCE ON A SMARTPHONE
The smartphone processor, also known as the chipset or SoC, is the component that controls almost every aspect of your phone's operation. It is effectively the system's brain, and most of these processors also include AI capabilities, allowing your smartphone to become as smart as it is today.
A powerful CPU not only helps your gadget to run smoothly, but it can also improve other aspects. Image processing is one example. Samsung phones, for example, are available in two versions, one with the Snapdragon processor and the other with the Snapdragon 888+. The other, on the other hand, uses Samsung's own Exynos processor (the latest being Exynos 2100). Some reviews have remarked that there is a discernible difference between the two models, not just in terms of processing power (the Snapdragon is far faster), but also in terms of image processing capabilities.
Thus, while choosing a smartphone, it's critical to understand what processor you'll be obtaining because performance is directly related to it. Snapdragon, Apple M1, Exynos 2200, and HiSilicon Kirin 9010 are among the most popular.
Apple CPUs are famed for their raw computing power, whereas Snapdragon processors in the Android world are the closest comparable. Lower-powered mid-range and budget processors, such as the Snapdragon 888 and Snapdragon 865G, MediaTek Helio G95, and others, are typically found in lower-priced 2021 smartphones.
Consider buying phones with one of these Mobile processors if you're on a budget and don't mind sacrificing some power to save money. They'll save you a lot of money.
When it comes to RAM, this refers to the system memory that smartphones use to store data from running applications. The operating system consumes a portion of your smartphone’s RAM to keep it running. We won't delve into the nitty-gritty of RAM used in a phone because it would need discussing terminology like kernel-space, which would take up a lot of space in this post. Having more RAM allows you to run a larger number of apps in the background, which improves your multitasking experience dramatically. Some smartphones, on the other hand, are defying all odds by packing 12-16 GB of RAM into their devices.
That's just too much for a smartphone, especially if you're not going to be jumping between 10-20 apps at once. You can easily get by with 3-4 GB RAM if you're a light smartphone user who only uses their phone for calls, SMS, Whatsapp, and light browsing. Something in the range of 6-8 GB should plenty for power users.
AN EXCELLENT DISPLAY
Smartphone display sizes appear to be expanding all the time, stretching the limits of what we'd anticipate from a smartphone display. They've made it to the Tablet-like stage, with displays as large as 6.9 inches.
Anything larger than 5.7 inches to allow you to fully immerse yourself in games and video. LCD and AMOLED displays are the two types of displays available. AMOLED displays have higher contrast and darker blacks than OLED or Super AMOLED displays (in the case of Samsung). They also help save battery life by turning off all of the phone's black pixels to display true black.
There are also other resolutions available, such as Full HD, Full HD+ Quad HD, and so on. While QHD visuals are clearer, the difference between FHD and QHD is not overly noticeable, especially to the untrained eye. You should also check your device's screen protection. Gorilla 5 and 6 are common in today's smartphones, and they give adequate protection for your glass sandwiches. However, we still strongly urge a case.
There are only two choices: Android or iOS. The decision is much more difficult than you might think, as both operating systems have a long list of advantages and disadvantages. You're on Team Android if you enjoy messing around with your phone and customizing it to your heart's delight. You're Team iOS if you prefer a simple, powerful operating system that receives regular software updates and is supported for a longer length of time. Nonetheless, Android is almost as powerful but not quite as simple, despite the fact that the latest Android version is significantly easier to use than Gingerbread. Just keep in mind that, in some circumstances, iOS as an operating system is extremely limited.
For example, if an app isn't available on the App Store, you can't sideload it from the internet; split-screen mode isn't available on iPhones (only iPads); you can't customize your home screen (though iOS 14 may include widgets), and you can't use launchers to completely change the look of your phone. However, iOS has a slew of benefits, like iMessage, FaceTime, regular software upgrades, and, most importantly, low bloatware and no ads! Xiaomi, we're talking about you.
You should also keep in mind that many devices have their own skin or UI (user interface) on top of Android. OnePlus has OxygenOS, a clean skin that is very close to vanilla Android, Samsung has One UI 2, which has gone a long way from its TouchWiz days, Xiaomi has MIUI, which is an ad-fest but well-optimized, and Oppo and Realme have ColorOS, which is heavily inspired by iOS. Remember to try out the UI before purchasing the device to see whether it suits your needs.
BATTERY LIFE THAT MEETS YOUR REQUIREMENTS ON A DAILY BASIS
The gold standard for flagship smartphone battery life is 6+ hours of screen on time. Even heavy users should be able to get by with anything with a larger capacity. Flagship phones, as well as some mid-range phones, can achieve screen time of 8-10 hours, which is fantastic. The goal is to find a phone that can last at least one full day of heavy usage. So, before you buy a smartphone, make sure to look up battery testing online. Also, see if the phone you're thinking about buying has a good power-saving mode.
Lower-end devices have 64GB of storage, whereas flagships have 128GB to 512GB. Almost all of us import every single GB of data from our prior phones to our new ones using quick sharing apps and technologies. As a result, appropriate storage is critical. We recommend that you don't go smaller than 128GB, since this will offer you plenty of storage to store your data and download programs to your heart's delight. Also, look for phones that have expandable memory storage.
THE QUALITY OF THE CAMERA JUSTIFIES THE PRICE
Multi-camera phones will be the standard in 2021, while phones with just one rear camera will be extremely unusual. A primary lens with the largest MP count, a portrait lens, and a wide-angle shooter are commonly included. Then there are the optional additions like the ToF (Time of Flight) sensor, macro lens, and color filter lens that some manufacturers include. Because of the vast amount of photographs that can now be captured on phones, we at the Digit Labs are big admirers of wide-angle lenses.
Taking pictures of large areas is no longer a problem! When used correctly, the portrait lens may also produce stunning bokeh. If this trend isn't for you and the rising camera bumps irritate you, older phones with one primary lens or newer phones like the iPhone SE 2020 are better options. Also, don't go megapixel-hunting; a greater megapixel count doesn't always imply better shots, as the sensor size is far more important in capturing good images.
Pixel-binning, which effectively combines four or more pixels into one large pixel, has also been used on smartphones to improve visual clarity and detail. Also, stay clear from the 108MP sensors for the time being, as they're currently plagued with image fringing and focussing difficulties.

The Edge 20 Fusion comes with Android 11 and Motorola's thinly skinned MyUX interface on top. The UI is similar to stock Android and may be further customized.
The Infinix Note 10 Pro stands out from the competition thanks to its large 6.95-inch 90Hz display and dual speakers. The phone is physically larger than some of its competitors due to its enormous display. Infinix has chosen the MediaTek Helio G95 processor, which is a competent SoC designed specifically for gaming. It is only available with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, but it is a decent gaming gadget.
Realme's Narzo 30 5G has some fantastic hardware, but it does so by cutting shortcuts in other areas. The smartphone has a Full-HD+ display with a 90Hz refresh rate that is vivid and sharp. The display also has a maximum touch sampling rate of 180Hz, which, when combined with the MediaTek Dimensity 700 processor, results in a good gaming smartphone. Realme UI 2.0 is easy to use in everyday situations, although it comes with a number of pre-installed third-party apps.
Day by day the smartphone industry is evolving and many smartphones are emerging at affordable prices, we can call its Smartphone evolution, there are many things we are able to do on the smartphones that were impossible for us a few years back, and with the latest smartphones, we are enjoying smooth life, and it becomes a part of our life.
Also, I would recommend something from my side which is not going for foldable devices as they have less life than these normal phones, and we are getting 5G ready smartphones and 5G is the future so whenever you chose to buy Smartphone try to consider 5G phones.Note: Make Sure you follow these steps, and at the end but the right accessory for your smartphone by visiting our website -> www.armilo.in ;-)
