# 1: How much can I spend?

# 3: Do I care about the quality of the photo?
With the growing popularity of social media and various photo and video devices, one of the most important features of the phone has become a good camcorder. Today, phones usually have several types of cameras: a universal camera with wide angle and optical zoom.
However, experts point out that the number of megapixels does not necessarily mean better quality photos. Its quality is also determined by the width of the opening, which is denoted by the letter “f”: the smaller the number of openings, the better. So, if a good camera was considered to have an aperture width f / 2.0 a few years ago, the aperture of modern phones was also f / 1.6.
And for those who want to take good quality photos in low light conditions, choose a phone with an optical image stabilizer.
# 4: What size phone is most comfortable to use?
Today phones are bigger than ever. But a big screen doesn’t mean it’s the right solution for everyone. A screen that is too large can cause discomfort when used with one hand or in a pocket. A screen that is too small can be annoying and less comfortable for watching videos, movies, or reading. Therefore, the right size is a very important aspect when using a smart device.

# 5: Do I use my phone intensively?

However, video content enthusiasts will not be confused by choosing a phone with a 5,000 mAh battery that is not discharged to the most interesting place in the movie.
# 6: Is fast phone operation important to me?
Typically, the speed of a phone is determined by the processor, which is measured by two indicators: the number of cores (can be 1 to 8) and the operating frequency (1-3.1 Ghz). The higher these numbers, the faster the phone. However, it is important to note that technology is constantly evolving, so these indicators are constantly improving and changing. Also with RAM: the higher it is, the faster the phone will be.

If you like shooting, taking photos, downloading videos or even movies, experts suggest you think of a more capable phone. Even better by phone you can insert a memory card to save even more information to your phone.
# 8: Which phone case do I prioritize?

The aluminum case gives the impression of a more durable and better quality phone, but it is quite slippery and can be scratched easily. And more expensive phones usually use a glass body, the latest models are protected from scratches, but fingerprints are clearly visible on the glass and are more sensitive to shocks.
# 9: Do I care about the latest technology?
