Buying a smartphone has become a daunting task these days. A few years ago, you had the iPhone and not much other choice. Now, with Android dominating, there’s too much choice in the market. Even Windows is trying to get a piece of the pie, although not really succeeding.
The first thing you need to decide when buying a new smartphone is the ecosystem. If you have a lot of Apple products in your home, it is probably a better idea to buy an iPhone. After all, this allows you to connect your various devices together and keep everything in order. Similarly, go with Android if, for example, you have the Google Chromecast or an Android tablet. The point is, you’re not just buying a smartphone, but rather into the whole ecosystem.
The next aspect to consider is the capability of the phone. One thing to bear in mind is, if you’re buying a flagship device, such as the iPhone 6, the Galaxy S6 or the HTC One M9, they’re just as good as each other in terms of features. They’re all extremely fluid and lightning fast. If you’re looking for a smartphone with the best sound, the HTC One M9 crushes the other 2. Heck, according to LUXSound, even its predecessor, the HTC One M8 is better than these 2.
Apart from that, look at the design. This one really depends on the person. I personally prefer the look of the M9 because of its aluminium unibody, but some people prefer the iPhone 6. Samsung has also upped its game with a full metal construction on the S6. Either way, this one is really up to you.
