Black Friday Phone Deals Buying Guide
BLACK FRIDAY PHONE DEALS BUYING GUIDE 2017
When buying a new Black Friday smartphone, it is the perfect time to figure out which service provider works best where you live and which one offers the best deal for you. The four major providers offer different pricing plans based on voice text and data use. But you may want to consider some smaller upstarts that could offer better deals. One key thing you will need to know when picking a new phone plan is, how much data you actually use. You will find it by checking in your phone settings on your account on your carrier’s website. Or your monthly bill, average a few months to get a good monthly estimate so you don’t get hit with charges for additional data use.
The two most popular operating systems are Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS. Android offers more phones across different brands including Samsung. You can customize the screen on Android using widgets to quickly access settings like Wi-Fi or Bluetooth and see the latest news and info from your apps without opening them. Apple’s operating system is consistent across phones on different carriers, so if you know how to use one, you know how to use them all.
Now Apple offers phones in different sizes. It may be confusing to try to decide between a phone and a phablet. Many phones are getting bigger and bigger, so now you have a lot more options when it comes to size. Most models we looked at have displays in the 4.5 to 6-inch range. Models with really big screens are great for viewing webpages, maps and videos, but may be hard to handle. Consider picking one you can use comfortably with one hand.
The latest trend in smartphone screen displays is ultra-high definition, which should mean sharper pictures in more detail, but we found most users won’t notice the benefits of UHD on their smartphone. This is partly because even the largest phones have relatively small screens. You will likely notice a difference however, if you buy a phone whose display is not at least HD. Stick with resolutions of the 720p and higher, or more than 300 pixels per inch.
BLACK FRIDAY CAMERAS
Cameras on smartphones are getting better and better, with their built-in network and wireless connections. There are plenty of quick and easy ways to share photos and video via Facebook, YouTube, email, text and cloud-based services. If your photos are not up to par after you initially take them, there are plenty of apps out there that will help you improve the quality.
People care about battery life a lot, because who wants to be stuck with a dead phone. You want one that will at least last you the day.
When it comes to insurance and extended warranties, just say no. A recent survey found only one in five people had to replace a lost, broken or stolen phone. Here’s a cheaper solution, hold on to your old phone and use it if your new phone breaks.
