How to choose a smartphone: a complete guide to choosing your dreams

Suggest smartphone everyone can do: remember that now at the hearing, name the big name, and you’re the expert! But we are not looking for easy ways, and be completely honest with you guys: advised a specific device in this case is just plain wrong. How many people, so many opinions, and our preferences may not coincide.
Just read our complete guide to choosing your dreams. Think of it as map for the wilds that will have to be overcome in the search for the device like. In short, you have a nice walk on well-trodden herd edition RevolverLab path.
But first, ask yourself the most important question which will determine your choice.
Why do you need a smartphone?
If you have not used a smartphone, you may not like. Seriously. Don’t expect the compact size, duration and uptime reliability that ensure you a modern phone»dialer». The increasing diagonal screens dictate the increase in size of the devices will have to accept.
Powerful processors, bright displays and useful interesting programs — the batteries of modern smartphones «sit down» with the speed of a pensioner taking up space in the bus.
Phone vs smartphone
Better buy your «regular» phone in a couple tablet. It is practical, and will save you the nerve cells and the time — don’t have to mark on the map of the city free of the socket, and then move dashes between them, entertaining friends the question «do you have a charging microUSB?..»
We failed to convince you, right? Understand. In this case, let us select the operating system of your future smartphone.
Which is better: Android, iOS or Windows Phone
Smart phone («smart phone») is a small computer. It operates under an operating system, it is possible to install and run programs. But the same app does not work on different operating systems (Instagram for iOS, Android and Windows Phone 8 is a different programs, their code is different).
At these words, common sense, clearing his throat, immediately prompt you to choose «OS» you need one where programs are more and they are better. Who are we to argue with your common sense?
Pre-note range of accessories to your smartphone (if it is possible to buy for camera cases, docking stations and other useful and not add-on) and ask whether the manufacturer supports the device. Bitter frustration of owning a top-level smartphone with no hope of upgrade can only be the knowledge that the game «Well, pogodi!» after 999 points do not show cartoons.
However, in most cases, your choice will boil down to the three «pillars» of our modern mobile world — Android, Windows Phone and iOS.
Android
With the purchase of this startup, Google jumped in the car rushing California trains, politely forcing him to move freely situated there, Apple with its iOS. Yesterday’s partners have become competitors in the mobile market, which caused not only a patent war, but also increased healthy competition. So let them fight: you better have to choose from!
Android
Smartphones running on Android, prevail on store shelves and online storefronts. Simply call those of the «serious» companies who are not animates a soulless «piece of iron» cute green robot: this is Apple, Microsoft/Nokia and Blackberry (Yes, the list is Captain Obvious).
The strengths of Android — the openness, loyalty Google to the developers and the ensuing democratic devices. There are vehicles for every taste: the cost of «branded» smartphone starts from $100 and ends just beyond common sense. The selection of apps is good too: Android is gradually catching up to iOS and, apparently, here-here will put a heavy green hand fruit on the competitor’s shoulder.
Android
Android have is far from integration, sophistication and iridescent cloudless world of iOS, but Google employs smart guys — look at the «fresh» KitKat, new Nexus, think about the Chrome OS, Google Glass, Chromecast… More will come soon, and it is not far off.
In any case, the Android smartphone can be a working tool, means of communication and a window into a world of relaxation and entertainment. Don’t fear Android: choosing it, you will not go wrong.
Windows Phone
The eighth incarnation of Windows on smartphones will try to bribe you austere interface, smooth animation, tight integration with Microsoft services (e.g. SkyDrive, Xbox Music) and are still big names, such as «Nokia» and «Windows». Who knows: maybe you do not soak the defense, and she get it?
But the number of apps in the Windows Phone Marketplace is still less than Google Play or the App Store, their quality is often lower. Just write it down in a separate notebook in case of purchase of a smartphone with WP8. On the cover of the notebook write by hand in capital letters: «I told you so!».
Windows Phone 8
Windows Phone 8 has a number of unique features. It is on this system released phone with camera of 41 megapixel and for the longest time there was no Instagram client, the interface has «tiles», but no «Windows» (except in name). And, most importantly, this system is installed on the smartphone, Steve Ballmer.
Smartphone Windows Phone 8, can certainly become a reliable assistant to a business person, and for entertainment… And it’s time for the first time to read an entry in the notebook that we a couple of paragraphs above was asked to do.
iOS
Even the «old» iPnone like a five-star hotel resort: everyone is smiling, you have all that your heart has not even had time to wish, and in the box is always good. Most importantly, time to pay.
Every Apple device knows its place in a clever and harmonious «ecosystem» — here everything is clear, beautiful and very cozy. At first glance, from heaven it differs only in the fact that for bitten apples you are not facing expulsion.
The number and quality of applications for iOS — out of competition. But the main argument in favor of buying the Apple smartphone invitingly located on the surface: the iPhone and «OSes» to him developing the same company. The level of support for even «old» devices — simply the best among the competitors. Apple iPhone 4 is currently three and a half years, but the company supports software component of the smartphone to date — in the autumn, the owners received an offer to upgrade to iOS7. Checkmate!
iOS 7
Range of accessories for Apple technology is simply an unattainable level. Covers, stereos, controllers, toys — what is there just no! To iPhone/iPod/iPad is perhaps not screwed except the coffee maker. Although we are not sure.
As you can see, iPhone is the choice of a practical man. Enter the world of Apple in our area is not cheap, but also to change the device as a pick up artist girls don’t have to.
Others (Bada, Tizen, QNX/Blackberry, etc.)
If you are willing to experiment — can experiment. But remember! — you’re looking for the smartphone of your dreams. Of course, we all have different dreams. But not so!
Devices on these little platforms (Blackberry), they are obsolete (Bada) or not at all (Tizen, Jolla). You also get the idea that all these «platforms» exist only in order to their background looked Windows Phone?
If you can’t decide operating system…
Do not worry. Can buy the smartphone on Android and him in a couple iPad. Or iPod. Or buy a Windows Phone and then give it on February 23, the Pope, and select something new. If again mistaken — next March 8, feel free to pack a «mistake» in a beautiful box for mom. The main thing is not to hide in shame my eyes during the presentation of gifts.
First and foremost don’t choose a brand and «ecosystem». Not mechites between Apple and HTC, Nokia and LG, Sony and Samsung. Quietly ply between Android, iOS or Windows Phone — you will surely stick to the right Bank.
Already noted favorite? Do not rush to put on it — let’s first talk about garden equipment. After all, the theme of «shovels» will not be able to bypass the guide to choosing your dreams.
How to determine the type, resolution and diagonal screen smartphone
We first called big phones «shovels». Let’s dig (forgive the pun) deep into the history of mobile technology.
Note the first widely known «lobation» — HTC HD2.
HTC HD2
The front part of this legendary for geeks apparatus is a glass… quite small by today’s standards display diagonal of 4.3″.
And here is the second of the once sensational «shovels» — Samsung Galaxy S.
Samsung Galaxy S
The diagonal of this «huge» screen… a modest 4″.
The displays of these «Oldies» will not blow the spot like a size four in a plunging neckline does not force you to give up for six months from Friday’s revelry and take out a second mortgage. There was a time!..
So whether you need a large screen smartphone?

Here’s our advice: go to a store with a good range of phones, select vending and at least just hold it in your hand. As long as you feel comfortable. If you have other considerations, and you firmly believe that you need a bigger screen, at the expense of convenience, then go straight to the counter with the «ceiling» of diagonal screens which protrude over 5.5″ of common sense.
But no need to rush from one extreme to another, and to buy very tiny apparatus. Smartphone, the screen is not up to 4″, are simply not very convenient to use. Stand apart from the others iPhone 4/4s, but they and the aspect ratio is not usual for Android smartphones (3:2).
