Your mind can be boggled with the choices available when you go out to buy phones. There are several brands out there, and each brand has a huge range of phones with varying features; some phones have good quality mega pixel cameras while others have built in MP3 players. And that is not it; there are hundreds of other things too!
You can either purchase a new phone or buy phones which are available second hand. Consider the criteria for both types of purchases;
Buying a used phone
When buying a second hand phone, you cannot trust all sellers; it is best if you buy it from someone you know, like anyone from the family or any friend. In case, you buy phone from a random shop and it comes out to be worthless afterwards, you won’t be able to claim anything back. On the other hand, if you buy from someone of trust, you’ll be able to sort out things if something goes wrong afterwards.
Another important thing you must ask the seller is that why does he want to sell the phone. If it has some issues or if it is not worth keeping, you probably shouldn’t take it too. A very obvious sign that the phone has some problem is that the seller wants to sell it in few days of buying it. Don’t hesitate to ask if there is any problem in the phone.
When buying a used phone online, deal with those people only who have maximum positive feedback and good reviews. Moreover, never finalize the deal without meeting the person and inspecting the phone.
Whether you are buying a new phone or a used one, you want the best deal and maximum features. But, it is important that you inspect the phone properly and buy the one which has at least some warranty. Check its battery; a phone with small battery life is a headache, trust me.
Buying a new phone
Getting a new phone can be a great hassle if you don’t know what exactly you want. You must know what features are necessary for you and on what features you can compromise. Not all phones have everything, especially if it’s not that fancy or costly.
When you know what features you are looking for, you can use internet to check a couple of handsets having those features. You can get detailed specs about all handsets and price details are also given at most websites. Moreover, user reviews can be of great help too.
Usually, people look for good quality camera when buying a new handset. Sound quality, voice clarity, storage space and signal strength, are other important features which should be checked. If you ask me, I like handsets with extra-long battery life; I hate to recharge my phone every now and then.
Apart from internal features, appearance also matters. Your phone should be slim and it should be decent enough to be carried around confidently.
The mind boggling process of buying a phone can be simplified if you know what exactly you want. Whether you are buying a new phone or a used one, make sure you get the best deal.
