It is very important to check the processor of a mobile phone. It’s the main part of a smartphone. Before looking at any other aspect, you should firstly check the processor. The processor takes care of Your phone’s speed, camera performance, battery backup, and many other things. The smaller the size of the chip, the better its performance. It is measured in nanometers. Keeping an eye on the year 2021, it is better not to take a chip of size larger than 12 nanometers. Size is right up to 8 nanometers in a mid-range phone.

RAM and Storage

The phone’s RAM is mainly used for multitasking. The more RAM there is, the more apps can run in the background. Due to low RAM, other running apps in your phone are automatically closed. 3GB to 4GB RAM can be there in a budget phone. A mid-range phone can have 6GB RAM. It’s common to have 12 GB RAM in flagship phones and 8 GB is also enough if you are not a gamer.

Let’s discuss the storage. The storage depends on your need. When checking storage, you should always check if the phone does have a memory card slot or not.


When using a smartphone, it’s really important to have a good display. There are two options for the screen, AMOLED, and LCD. LCD will have more brightness whereas AMOLED show amazing colors on the screen also saves your battery.

You can blindly trust the AMOLED screen as it’s the best one. Also, you should check the screen resolution and refresh rate. HD resolution does not worth on a 6-inch screen.

Many mid-range phones are coming with two-three camera lenses. The lenses only cover a wide range but it does not give a detailed picture. It is very common to have 48 megapixel and 64-megapixel cameras in mid-range phones. Only pixel is not important in a camera. Sensor size, aperture, shutter speed, and phone processor decide how a picture will be clicked. A big sensor phone is always a better choice.

Battery and Charging Speed

Higher battery capacity is always the right choice. Do not buy a phone with having a battery of less than 4000mah. The big-screen phone consumes more battery than the small-screen phone. Maximum phones do have to charge a speed of 10 watts, but we will suggest you buy a minimum 18-watt charging speed phone.

Most of the time we neglect the weight of a mobile phone. It’s always preferable to buy a light weighted phone as it gives comfort while using. More than 200-gram phones are considered heavy.
