3. Choose Right Screen Size
Get a phone with screen size smaller than 5.5 inches if you have small
hands or single-hand use is important to you. Get bigger screen size
when you want to play games, watch lots of videos, or you need to take
advantages of Android’s Multi-Windows Mode. Yet, phone-manufacturers are
making bigger screen phones, like Galaxy S8 with 5.8-inch screen, which

like most augmented reality and power to play games, buy Android with
Snapdragon 835 processor. A11 bionic is iPhone 8, 8+ and iPhone X is
fastest processor yet.
7. Do not settle for battery that lasts less than
Even budget phones offer long-lasting batteries now. So watch for the
list of the longest running mobiles to get one that can get you across
the day on single charge.
