iOS is the operating system used solely for Apple iPhones. Apple interfaces and operating systems are renowned for their ease of use, meaning newbies to the setup will find it relatively easy to pick up.
Unlike iOS, where there is one version for all iPhones, Android phones have a variety of different operating systems which are dependent on what phone you choose. One of Android OS’s major advantages is the high level of customisation available, allowing users to truly personalise their phones.
The most common size of smartphone, this size is easy to operate with one hand for the majority of phone users, and generally fits comfortably in most pockets. Phones like the Samsung Galaxy S8 and iPhone 7 and 8 are perfect examples of medium-sized phone screens.
Phones with smaller screen sizes are perfect for basic functions such as text messaging, web browsing and making calls.
An efficient processor will help your phone to multitask without lag. With the wide array of tasks that the modern mobile phone is used for, a decent processor is required to cope with these functions.
If you’re going to run your smartphone through the motions, you’ll want a handset with the most recent processors. The iPhone Xs uses Apple’s latest processor, the A12 Bionic, which is rated as one of the fastest mobile chips available.
Phones have come a long way since the days of having to delete texts to free up your inbox. Phones available to buy at Officeworks offer storage of up to 512GB.
High storage phones such as the Oppo R11, iPhone Xs or Samsung Galaxy Note9 are ideal for those who like to store music, videos and photos in sizeable amounts. Bear in mind that apps tend to consume a great deal of storage, so if you like to have plenty of apps on your phone, high storage capabilities are a must.
The majority of people use their phone to double as a camera, so this is another important consideration when choosing a new phone.
Most smartphones feature a front and back camera, with the front camera being particularly ideal for video calls and taking selfies. Whilst the megapixel count gives a good indication of the camera’s quality, you should also pay heed to other camera features, such as stabilisation and performance under low light, to gauge what camera is best suited to your needs.
