Looking for a new smartphone this Black Friday? Choosing one can be hard, and there are so many things to consider. Which operating system are you going for (Android or iOS)? what are you going to use it for? This is just the tip of the iceberg. Here are some tips and guidelines to help you make your decision with Vodacom.
What’s your price range?
First things first, you need to decide how much you’re going to spend on your new smartphone. Are you going to get it on a contract plan or prepaid? If it’s on contract, is it going to be on a 24-month or 36-month plan?
24-month vs. 36-month contract plan
The 24-month contract is still the go-to choice for people who are used to the two-year phone upgrade cycle. The monthly cost is higher, but you can still get the latest smartphone at an affordable price.
The 36-month contract has grown in popularity, especially for people who want the latest smartphones without breaking the bank. However, you must be prepared to have the same phone for three years.
What features Are You Looking For?
The other thing you really need to think about is what you are going to use your smartphone for. Is it for personal use, work, or both? You also need to consider the size and shape of your phone. Do you need a phone with a large screen, or is an average one fine? Also, how much time do you spend on your phone, this is where battery life comes in, you don’t want it dying in the middle of your stream.
You also need to consider camera quality if you’re a content creator, plus storage is a big deal as well as data speed (is there 5G in your area). These are just some of the things you need to consider when choosing a new smartphone.
