Many might be interested in how a smartphone looks but I pay more attention to its battery, how long it can last even when heavily used is my concern because you will never enjoy that phone that makes you go from one place tp the other looking for where to charge your phone no matter the worth of such phone

If you play game a lots or use your phone heavily without allowing it to rest then you need a smartphone that has long lasting battery between 3500mAh to 5500mAh or more.

4. Display/ Screen size

Random Access Memory (RAM) helps you phone do more simultaneously while the storage memory helps in keep all your files such as videos, mp3, games and other related files.

If you normally do lots of multitasking or downloads heavy apps and games then consider buying a smartphone that has between 2GB – 4GB RAM and 16GB – 64GB internal sterage memory you will be ok with whatever you want to do with your phone.

6. Processor/OS
With no doubt even with the same specs some smartphones performs more better than others with the help of great processors and stable operating systoms.

Most of Android OS are stable but it will be better to go for newier verions to have access to wide rage of new apps thats supports only the recent android OS and i suggest you go for a smartphone that comes with Android 5.1 Lollipop or high one’s.

7. Camera
Do you have a desire to take a superb pictures with your smartphone if yes, the good news is that there are many smartphone in the market design to take great pictures and most of them are not that expensive.
