These days you just can't make up your mind about which phone is best for you because of the huge variety available. You make your mind that I want this specific model but when you enter the shop you just get lost in the variety. For example, you go with a budget of $400 with a specific model in mind but you see that you are getting better functions in the other smartphone whose price is less than $350 you just can't stop yourself.

In short, buying a smartphone is not easy as it looks especially if you are the person who is more into the technology field. If you are the kind of person who just buys a new model of a brand like Apple, Samsung, OnePlus, Huawei, etc then it is not difficult for you to buy a smartphone. If your smartphone needs repairing we all have mobile phone repairs near our houses. For now, let’s move to the phone-buying guide!

What Do You Actually Need?

Before buying a smartphone always prioritize your needs that what do you actually want from your device. If you just want to pick up calls or send WhatsApp messages you should not go for phones priced over $200 for a gamer you should go for phones priced in the region of $400 to $450. But if you want complete performance from your smartphone you should be ready to splash at least $500

Mobile Carriers And Affordable Plans

Before whipping out your credit card to buy a smartphone, always check the offers presented by various mobile providers. For example AT&T, T-Mobile. They give you offers including data plans, call packages, message plans, etc.

Operating System

If you are buying a smartphone, always look at their operating system; don't buy a phone which has Nougat or Marshmellow as they are completely out of the race. Instead, buy a device that has an Android 10 version or at least Android 9 Pie.


Buying a smartphone is about your preference; how do you like your device appearance. Some people go for curvy edges while some other people go for sharp metallic edges. Also, check their design according to your needs because, in some upcoming phones, you don't get a headphone jack or SD Card slot.

Size & Type Of Display

If you are the kind of person who just wants to play games or wants to watch videos, the 6-inch screen is perfect for you. Whereas for the people who just want to send messages or scroll through social media 5.5 Inch screen is sufficient. There are two main types of screen LCD and AMOLED modern phones mostly use AMOLED displays because of the sharpness of colors they provide.

RAM, ROM, Camera

Always prefer these three characteristics. For a gamer, 6GB RAM and 128GB ROM are enough but you can go further according to your budget; whereas for normal users, 4GB RAM and at least 64GB ROM is enough. Camera quality is amazing in every upcoming phone but always buy the phone which has at least 15 Megapixel camera.


Always compare the price of different companies. For example, if you are looking for a phone around $600, many companies offer the same functions in the range of $500 or maybe even less.
