Where can you start looking for your perfect phone?
The world seems to have changed. The new norm has set in and people are being forced to adjust. In the current world, one either shape in or shape out.
Governments around the world, including Kenya, are calling on citizens to try as much as possible to stay and work from home. The traditional office is slowly being faced out, coupled with lockdowns and curfews.
If there is something that this pandemic has changed is how people do business; buying and selling. People are increasingly turning to online platforms to buy and sell their products and services, including phones.
The best place to start looking for your phone, therefore, is through online platforms. Online, you will get reviews of different phones, feedback, and experiences of those who have used whatever model you might be looking for.
What should you focus on when looking for your dream phone?
Storage: A good phone is about space. In the current world, people no longer talk about MBs while looking for a phone in terms of space but about GBs. How much can your phone store? You don’t want to buy something that will tell you running low on memory as soon as your phone receives a message.
Camera: Camera is everything on a phone in the current world. Look for a phone that will take some of your best pictures and selfies, giving you the real feel of the surrounding without you having to struggle to identify an object.
Color: A good phone is about its beauty, its appearance. Get a phone that matches the colors you like and love. The majority of people looking for phones often prefer the color black.
The weight and size: Your phone should be big enough to fit in your hand and small enough to feet in your pocket. It should also be light to enable you to move around with it without feeling it.
