the practical guide to choosing a smartphone
Choosing the right phone is a very personal decision and an answer may not be for everyone
Even for those who are not interested in minor differences in technical specifications.
No matter who you are, the first thing to figure out is what features your priority is.
While we all want phones to have it all, the right decision requires you to rank some attributes.
Based on my frequently asked questions about new phones, here are four common ways you can build a smartphone search
Ideas on how to use them apply them to the most popular smartphones this fall.
Camera: The camera has become the top priority for many smartphone buyers.
Think about what kind of photos you take and your own skill level may help you.
The good news is that most phones on the market have very good cameras, so it\'s hard to have bad options.
If you\'re primarily a pointand-
Samsung Galaxy S8 and Apple iPhone 8 will work for you.
But they do lack the photo features of some of the more advanced models.
Do you shake often when you take pictures?
Go and buy a phone with image stabilization, which helps when shooting from a mobile location (like a car)or for zoomed-in shots.
Note 8 makes this a selling point.
Apple has remained stable on both the iPhone X camera and the iPhone 8 Plus telephoto lens.
If you take pictures of a lot of people, the iPhone may be a better choice for you.
The IPhone X and iPhone 8 Plus are expanded on the apple \'spopular portrait mode settings, allowing you to take eye-catching photos of people.
With features such as \"stage lights\" or \"Contour Light\", they can make sure that faces pop up can be seen in almost any case ---
You can apply these effects before or after shooting.
LG\'s new V30 also has an impressive rearfacing wide-
Angle lens, which may be particularly attractive to those who always capture the vision. The trade-
The one in front is off-
It\'s not that good to face the camera, so your selfie won\'t be as good as other photos.
If selfies are all your stuff, the iPhone X promises to offer great selfies thanks to cutting-edge facial recognition technologyfacing camera.
Battery life: battery life is a good factor to consider, especially if you go out a lot and can\'t stay powered all day. Phone makers —
No longer give a specific hourly estimate of battery life, perhaps because the mileage varies depending on how you use your phone.
When I test my phone, I\'m mainly looking for a practical standard: see if they can make me spend the whole day with top phonesup.
While the most expensive phones tend to have the best battery life, this is not necessarily the case this year.
For example, the battery life of Samsung\'s most expensive mobile phone Galaxy Note 8 is not much better than S8.
For Apple, the iPhone X has the longest battery life, with a clear commitment to adding two hours of battery life to the iPhone 7
You can extend it to the iPhone 8. Cutting-
If you want cutting-edge technology
Then you have to pay for it.
Note 8 and iPhone X are your phones because they are blocked --
Features such as facial recognition on IPhone X or stylus productivity on Note 8.
If you really like to try new things, there\'s an interesting option on the table this fall: a must-have phone.
The basic phone, made by Andy Rubin, the creator of Android, is essentially an experiment.
It has modular accessories such as a removable camera that will allow you to use add-ons.
The downside to having an experimental phone is that it\'s experimental.
The basic phone calls became blurred in early reviews because they did not deliver on their promises.
The deeper you know about the unknown, the more likely things will not go well --
This is worth remembering for all devices.
Another thing to note: If you want to use the new software right away, then a)
You might be a fan of Android.
You might want a pixel.
Pixel is Google\'s phone and the first phone to get an Android update and all the new features that come with it.
Pixels should be updated later this fall.
Price: In general, this is the most needed attribute in terms of trade --offs.
But it makes sense to pay attention to the price, especially now that the price of smartphones has reached $1,000.
Price is often the reason why people insist on the basic taste of smart phones;
For most, this fall, it will be the iPhone 8 or Galaxy S8, which works for those who only want aphone that works well. The price-
Conscious people may also want to consider last year\'s phones, such as the iPhone 7 or the Galaxy S7, whose prices will drop as new technologies roll out.
If your main goal is to get a very low price then the area will actually become more crowded.
You can take a look at the top of some of the more \"budget\"or mid-
First-line phones that cost less than $500 can do the job well even if they are unlikely to shake your world.
Huawei Honor 8 and Moto G series and other devices provide beautiful-
Very good features and performance.
The same is true for IPhone SE, Apple\'s iPhone SE is getting smaller and less complete
Featured smartphones for $350.
