Operating System

This really comes down to, if you want the easiest phone, with regular updates and the latest apps, coupled with less risk of malware or viruses. In which case the Apple iPhone, with the iOS, is the choice for you.

However, if you want a bit more freedom to change and personalise your smartphone experience, then Android is the OS for you. You will have a greater choice of phones, and many manufacturers. The openness of the OS allows developers to bring widgets, apps, keyboards and more to increase your pleasure. Blackberry; have moved into Android territory, now with their new phones.

Size

This matters a great deal, if you just want something to slide into your top pocket, or fill your jeans back pocket, then you will be looking at a phone screen size of 5.4 inches or less. These little phones also have the advantage of only needing one hand to reach the whole screen.  If you want, screen real estate to work on, then a supersized six plus-inches, is going to satisfy you.

Battery

If you require a phone to last longer, then make sure you get one with a battery greater than 3,000maH.

Camera

These days, you take pictures more than ever, to share on social media, to email a client with ideas or just documenting your day. Look at the number of pixels, the higher the number of microns the better, and the aperture, this should be as low as possible. Ignore the mega pixels.

Storage

Unless you store everything on clouds, then you will want more than 16 GB of internal storage, we are expecting phones this year to be 32GB and more. Consider external storage, with SanDisk announcing the new 256 GB SD card  there will be plenty of room on your phone.

Other points to consider:

A few other questions to ask yourself could include ‘Do you need your phone to be waterproof? ‘Does the phone need dual front speakers, for watching video or gaming?’ Would wireless charging be useful?’
