10 things not to do while buying a smartphone    

You are excited as you are soon going to acquire a new smartphone. There are many things to keep in mind while buying a smartphone. Here are a few tips on what to avoid:


  1. Don’t get carried away by the brand name. Lesser known brands may also give the same performance (sometimes even better) at a lower price.
  2. Don’t go for the most expensive phone. Buying expensive phones does not guarantee great performance. Check out lower price range phones and see if they have the same features.
  3. Don’t buy from the first place you visit. Different places may offer different discounts. This applies to buying online too.
  4. Don’t buy without research. Always do a background check on the internet for the phone before buying. You may find better options and you will also get to read the reviews.
  5. Don’t ignore older versions. If older models meet your requirements, go for them. They will be cheaper and you will get what you want.
  6. Don’t get influenced by sales people. Sales people are given a particular quota for a specific brand which they will try selling to you. Decide for yourself what is best for you.
  7. Don’t ignore the battery. Anything below 2500 mAh will not be good. Higher the number, better the battery life.
  8. Don’t buy a phone for its camera. If you are a professional photographer, invest in a professional camera but never buy a phone for its camera.
  9. Don’t get lured by advts. Advertisements are meant to entice people. Choose a phone for its quality and not because of its advt.
  10. Don’t buy without setting your priorities. Figure out what matters most to you. If you spend the day away from home, having a weak battery will cause stress. If you like games, a small screen or poor performance will be problematic. Make a list of your requirements. Once you’ve done that, you’ll have a good idea of what you’re looking for.
