How to choose your next mobile device

by Blog Author Telkom 3 weeks ago

Today we’re going to be guiding you into purchasing your new device. What kind of a consumer are you and what do you want out of your phone? Are you a budding photographer or are you a little clumsy with your phone around water? All these little things can come into play when getting your new phone and thinking about the smaller aspects can really benefit you in the long run when purchasing it.

Let’s take a look at what you should consider when getting a new device:

  • 3G or LTE: Does browsing the web and social media mean a lot to you? Even though 3G is a super-fast browsing technology kicking it up to a faster LTE network can be great when streaming videos or downloading content on your phone.
  • Memory capacity: Did you know a phone that has a 64GB storage capacity can hold up to 9000 photos? That’s all well, but don’t forget you need memory to hold other essentials too. Apps, Music, contacts, and emails all add up. Consider how much you use before purchasing your device.
  • Do you really need waterproof technology: Did you know that around 11% of mobile phones are trashed each year due to water damage? Luckily, device brands are recognizing this and are adding a waterproof functionality to some of their devices. If you play sports, spend a lot of time outside or even if you just have a case of butterfingers investing in a device with this tech may be beneficial to you.
  • The more megapixels the merrier: Are you a budding photographer or do you appreciate that good front facing camera? Consider for a second how you’ll be using your camera. If that overlaps with some work or a passion for your insta-feed, getting a camera that is either higher in megapixels may be beneficial to you. Make sure your camera comes with some basics like image stabilization and autofocus – you’ll be shooting like a pro in no time.
