Find your way with the best mobile phone offers
The mobile market is constantly expanding and often the choice is really arduous: between programs and applications, more or less useful, the world of telephony offers an infinite number of services that are worth having only if they are actually used. In general, before purchasing it is a good idea to evaluate the main features of the devices in order to compare the various models. Memory technology is certainly the most important feature of hardware technology. This is divided into RAM (Random Access Memory), which indicates the ability to support applications and services in the background, and internal memory (storage) often expandable through an SD card. Nowadays, with an average use of the mobile phone, it is essential to be able to count on at least 1 GB of RAM, while the internal memory is quantified with sizes usually between 4 and 32 GB and is used to store photos, videos and others data. As a result, the greater the need to keep long-term files on your phone, the greater the amount of internal memory required. Another important assessment to make before the final mobile phone choice is battery life, especially in cases where it is not replaceable. Smartphones have a reputation for downloading very soon, but even in this case it depends a lot on the model. A quick and intuitive way to know the real capacity of the battery is to read the voice that concerns the duration of video playback, which quantifies quite accurately as far as the phone will remain on with the screen active. Other options, such as the size of the display and the megapixel of the camera, are less important depending on the intended use or individual preferences.
What are the features to consider for the first smartphone?
When choosing the first mobile phone for a child or a boy it is important to carefully evaluate some parameters. Firstly, the size of the display: the wider the screen, the more delicate it will be, without forgetting that battery consumption is also directly proportional to its size. A 4-inch screen can be a good compromise between image definition and impact resistance. A trick that can be very useful regards the operating system: the main smartphone models are equipped with Android, ioS (Apple) or Windows (Microsoft), choosing the same operating system as the parents' mobile phone - which the boy probably already had the chance to do to know - it facilitates the immediate use of the device, simplifying its use. Last, but not least, consideration is to look for models that incorporate the "parental control" function, a filter that allows you to select which content can be viewed while browsing, thus preventing the boy from inadvertently running into inappropriate images or videos for the his age.
How to choose between mobile offers?
- Consider, based on your needs, the types of hardware components as specified above (to be found on the product data sheet)
- choose the preferred operating system, remembering that when we talk about Symbian OS or Java ME we refer to the so-called "old generation mobile phones" (therefore not to a smartphone)
- evaluate both the possibility of expanding the internal memory through an SD card and that of being able to replace the existing battery
- consider any accessories according to the use for which it is intended, for example a portable battery charger is the most practical solution in the event of being away from home for the whole day
