#2 – Specs
When you are looking at specs, you need to pay attention to two main things – processor and system memory (RAM). A fast processor will enable you to open apps easily and play games smoothly. Today’s high-end smartphones usually feature quad-core processors; however, some models like the latest iPhone run on a dual-core processor. If you want a device that is more future-proof, opt for a smartphone with a quad-core processor.
Most mid-range and high-end smartphones today come with anywhere between 1-3 GB of RAM. More RAM will help you use multiple applications at once, and switch between them faster.
