The smartphone market across the world is growing at an astronomical speed. There are different types of phones today from different makers. These numerous types of smartphones in the market come with different levels of features, which, to a great extent, determines the price such phones are offered.

Owing to these different types of phones today, all begging for your attention, choosing the right smartphone in the midst of many has been a daunting task. Some people resort to internet searching endlessly in a bid to help them make the right decision.

If you are in that category, this article is written to help you as much as possible to decide which smartphone is suitable for you. 

Below are 8 Essential Factors you need to consider when you decide to buy a smartphone:

The Battery:

The battery capacity of any smartphone is a necessary factor to consider when buying a phone. It becomes even more important if you are a heavy internet user. For example, suppose you multi-task frequently by opening multiple apps simultaneously, or downloading heavy files with your smartphone. In that case, a smartphone with a 4000mAh battery and above is recommended. The reason is that the internet requires more energy to perform queries sent to it. Again, those multiple apps, because they are internet-based, require more power to carry out the expected functions. The energy required to do the job comes solely from the battery.


The Memory

Two memory types exist in every smartphone- the Random Access Memory (RAM) and the Read-Only Memory  (ROM).
Both the RAM  and ROM are essential. The RAM represents the location that houses the apps. as we shall see shortly, the RAM and the processor, determine the download speed and how smooth the User Interface (UI) of such a smartphone.
The ROM, on the other hand, is what many call the storage memory. This location on the phone stores your photos, videos, documents, and partly apps. 
The above scenario implies if you are a heavy user, a 3GB  to 6GB RAM and 64GB to  512GB ROM smartphone is recommended. Otherwise, 1GB - 2GB RAM and 16GB to 32Gb ROM are best for a regular user.
Please note you can always increase the ROM with the use of an external microSD card. The RAM is constant.

The Processor:
As earlier identified, the RAM and processor a play vital role in the speed of any smartphone. Today, several tech coys incorporate either the Snapdragon, Quad-Core, Octa-Core, MediaTech, etc. processors on the smartphones they make. However, to quickly view any smartphone processor, kindly look out for such, usually expressed in gigahertz (GHz). 
A 2.0GHz and above is recommended for a heavy internet user. The higher the processor, the better the speed of such a smartphone.

The Camera:
The camera on any smartphone is as essential as the phone itself. Today, many people place a lot of emphasis on the camera of any smartphone they intend to buy; having said that, please do not be deceived with the offering of higher MegaPixels (MP) by different tech coys, a view they put forward to outdo one another in the market. A higher megapixel does not translate to a quality photoshoot. What does is the aperture, as well as the speed of autofocus. An aperture of f/2.0 or lower is recommended if you desire to have good quality photos, even in low light situations. This is always reflected in a phone with a 12MP or 16MP. However, for regular use, an aperture of f/2.2, reflected in an 8MP to 12 MP, suffice.

The Operating System (OS):
The OS represents the user interface upon which such a smartphone is working on. There is two unique OS available in the market today- iOS and Android. 
iPhone Operating System (iOS) is domiciled with Apple smartphones. Therefore, if you settle for iOS, it means you are in for iPhones, iPads, etc. Usually, Apple updates its OS from time-to-time with the latest being iOS14.1. Nevertheless, an Apple device with iOS 7 and above is a good buy.
On the other hand, The Android OS, owned by Google, is more ubiquitous, with many phone manufacturers settling for it. The reason being its openness and "free" as it were. Android version 11.0 is the latest update as of the time of this article. However, Android version 6.0 and above is suitable for a good smartphone.

The Display:
The display represents the screen size of the phone. Your preference notwithstanding, a display size of 5.5- inch and above will make a good choice.

The Design:
The design built around any smartphone is an essential factor to consider, especially if aesthetics and beauty matter to you. Tech firms are in a race to outwit one another with the array of designs churned out in the market regularly

Price:
Besides the factors mentioned above, any smartphone's cost is hinged on the premium a manufacturer has imbued into such a device. The higher the memory, the camera, the screen display, etc., the higher the phone's cost.
