In These Sales, most people do a huge mistake that they buy an outdated phone having huge discounts. Many brands keep on selling their outdated phones on heavy discounts to attract more customers and to clear out their stocks.
So, be assured that you don’t fall in that trap, always consider to compare on other sites, even if you are getting huge discounts on any smartphone.
Choose According to need
First of all, you should know your requirements, let me help you with this. Let’s start with asking yourself that which feature of the previous smartphone you were using more and lack of which feature is forcing you to buy a new smartphone. Because sometimes we pay for some extra features which we don’t use or rarely use and pay extra for that. Below is a list of the must-have features from which you should not compromise.
There are some Important features which you definitely have to keep on your checklist:-
- Camera- Everybody wants to capture and share the memories with friends and family, the easiest way of doing is using your smartphone’s camera. You should choose the phone which at least has a dual camera setup. It is a most common feature which you will easily get in smartphones starting around 8k.
- Processors- Phone’s processor have the major impact on how much time you are going to use the smartphone, it can make or break your experience of the new smartphone. There are many smartphone brands out there which offers outdated processors in their new smartphones. So be aware and compare the processors also, we recommend that you should always consider Qualcomm Snapdragon processors in your phones.
- Battery- Nothing will come into action if your phone will have a poor battery life nor camera runs neither you can play games or stream videos on it. You Should prefer the smartphone which is having at least 4000mah of battery, and you can easily get this in price range starting from 10k.
Above three points are very important to consider before making a buying decision, because you will not like that your phone hangs or battery is not giving backup for even a day.
Choose smartphone brands Wisely
Some of us choose our smartphones on just the brand names, but you should know that time has changed enough due to huge competition, they are not providing you with the value for your money.
Like most of the phones in Samsung’s J series will surely disappoint you as they are the overpriced phones with fewer features. If You invest 12k in Samsung’s smartphone then you will get a low-performance phone as compared to a phone of Xiaomi, Honor etc. in the same price range.
So, please compare the features of your Favorite smartphone brand with Some Other smartphone brands which are providing value for money.
