Budget for choosing best android phone 2016

It is the basement for selecting your best android phone as per your requirement. It decides mainly the configuration, brand, a features of your android smartphone. If you are a passionate about android geek or tech guru who make a living out of Technology, you need to invest much on you android phone. I recommend to set the budget to above 25+K for best high-end smartphones. On the other hand, if you willing to buy a best android phone for the casual purpose with moderate gaming along with some cool features, invest around 15 – 20 K for medium end smartphone. So if you neither a tech guru nor a rich fellow, but willing buy the best value android smartphone then you need to invest  around 5 – 8 K for best value Low-end smartphone. So purchasing the android smartphone is the quite long time investment with lasts for 1-2 years, so don’t be the miser in this case!

Another great factor for deciding your best android phone stands next to your budget is the Brand. When it come for blogging “Content is the King”, the same rule applies here for android smartphones ” Brand is the King“.  Go for better-branded smartphones like Samsung, LG, HTC..etc. Even though the regionally branded smartphone manufacturers like Karbonn, Micromax, Intex, Lava..etc are performing well. When it come for customer support these smartphone companies sucks. Now days the local branded and Chinese companies running in the race for marketing their smartphones. Those Cheap branded smartphones have immense inbuilt features which lack in the branded smartphones. Always prefer Quality No Quantity.

RAM(Random Access Memory) plays a vital role in the performance of your android smartphone. No one likes an android phone which lags even for playing the casual games and for regular smartphone usage. If you need an hang-free best android phone. Then go for the higher amount of RAM Smartphone. So the minimum RAM required to run the android that is KitKat is 512 MB. Don’t go for the RAM which is less that of this requirement. Probably this is the minimum RAM for an android phone nowadays. 1 GB of RAM is recommended for the gaming and also hang-lag free Android smartphones.

The processor is considered as the brain for your smartphones, which you should choose between Single, Dual, Quad and Octa core android processors.

A good processor along with the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) makes the games run smoother, and the video performance will be up to the mark. So make you sure your smartphone has great CPU + GPU for optimum benefit out of your smartphone.
