Buying a Smartphone: Understanding the Specs
TIP: Use our smartphone compare feature above to see the specs for different phones side by side.
Most smartphone screens today range in size from 4 to 6 inches (diagonal).
Large Screen (5.5 to 6 in) - Best for those who like to stream videos or play games - or who are near-sighted (to enlarge the smartphone screen to a larger size)
Medium Screen (4.5 to 5.5 in) - A good choice for most people
Small Screen (under 4.5 in) Perfect if you want a smartphone that's easy to carry and fits comfortably in your pocket
A screen's resolution correlates to its clarity and definition, with higher resolutions typically being the sharpest (although there are other factors that affect picture quality). A high resolution screen is especially desirable for people who watch a lot of videos or play games on their smartphone.
Common smartphone resolutions:
FWVGA: 854 x 480
qHD: 960 x 540 (¼ full HD)
HD: 1280 x 720
Full HD: 1920 x 1080
Operating System (OS)
An operating system is the software that runs a smartphone. The main phone operating systems are Android, iOS (Apple), and Windows Phone. For phone buyers, the operating system is very important because it affects the phone's core functionality and the experience offered by the phone. Also, because phone apps are created to work with specific operating system(s) -you won't be able to download an app to your phone if it has an incompatible operating system. That's something to keep in mind when choosing a smartphone.
Faster is usually better when it comes to a smartphone's processing speed, which is measured in GHz. A faster processor can help you download, stream, and use gaming features quickly and seamlessly.
If you've ever had a digital camera, you probably know that higher mega-pixels (MP) translate into higher resolution, sharper pictures. (However, other features like the lens also impact the picture; the highest MP camera doesn't always produce the best picture quality.)
In general, the higher the milliamperes per hour (mAh), the higher the battery capacity - but battery life can vary depending on usage. 3000 mAh is a higher smartphone battery capacity, potentially lasting up to 15 hrs, while a 1000 mAh is a shorter battery life.
