That being said, some users often get misguided by some fake advertisement or publicity either by digital information or print media related to phones. As a result of these, they go ahead to purchase them without looking for the reviews or complete details of the device.

The most significant problems come when few users get perceptive to the lucrative TV commercials. These kinds of TV ads represent some celebrities making the promotion of specific devices. The irony is that, most users who are loyal fans of such renowned personalities immediately rush to the stores to purchase the advertised device.

However, the ads only show the highlighted features and the ones that are the best. You do not get to see the other features such as how the phone runs with your favourite games, or how much battery does it consume, and more.

Another problem comes when you purchase the device from a store. The staff there will keep pushing you or messing with your mind towards a particular device that sells more just for their selfish benefits. Hence, most people with little knowledge of technology get into the trap and go straight ahead to purchase the device.

Likewise, other mistakes will be mentioned below. These things will undoubtedly open your eyes before you might commit an error while buying a smartphone. As we all know, November is fast approaching, and it comes with the biggest deals of the year “BLACK FRIDAY”. I know you have your desired smartphone already in mind, but i will advise you to read through this article so you can make a great choice during the season of great deals.

1. TV commercials may not tell you everything

It is well known that TV commercials are the most significant disguise in the name of a phone. These ads with their high-quality videos only address the highlighted features. These commercials sometimes represent some celebrities talking about a particular function of the device.

The users often get carried away by the charms of the personalities and purchase the device without actually knowing the other detailed features with the commercials never show. So, it’s advisable to avoid such things and have the best information before you by a smartphone.

2. The company could overhype build quality

Only a few mobile manufacturing companies talk about their particular feature that had aided the biggest advantage in the purchasing power of phones. The issue with some people is that they follow brands blindly without looking out for another device. Hence, before deciding on buying any device go for the detailed reviews and opt according.

3. Don’t go by words of the salesperson in the store

This problem always comes when you go to the store for the purchasing of a smartphone. The staffs there will keep the pressure on you on a particular device that sells more just for their benefits. Therefore, several people with little knowledge of technology come under the trap of these salesmen, and they go ahead to purchase the device. Hence, it is always advisable to move with a person who tech savvy whenever you need to get a smartphone from the store.


4. Don’t always cling to the famous brands

This is one of the significant issues smartphone users face; they blindly follow the famous brands. When you can have featured packed phones at a lower price, but they will insist on the brand they love most with a high price tag. So it is advisable to consider other brands with related features and in the same price range.

5. Be open to buy last year’s model

It’s always not correct that the new releases of every device are still good or they outshine their predecessors. The users sometimes get bluffed by the showcases of these new devices with only new things. To avoid such mistakes, you can consider looking into used smartphone which in good condition and for a reasonable price, which can offer much more than a new and less powerful device.

6. Don’t buy without knowing your requirements

A consumer who buys a smartphone or device without understanding their requirements will most likely pick a wrong device and later regret the purchase, which then can be proved as expensive. Like for example, if you are a big fan of games, you know that a small screen phone and poor performance will ruin your vibe.

Similarly, choice of phone with weak battery backup can put you in a difficult situation, especially when you are far away from home. So, whenever you buy a new device, first of all, figure out what suits you the most before purchasing.

7. Don’t consider the camera as the first factor

A camera will never make your phone faster without any lag. It can never assist you in storing large data or even help you when your device starts to discharge quickly. So before considering any device make sure that the phone offers satisfactory features.

8. Don’t take display size alone into consideration

The outward beauty is not all that sufficient to define the qualities of a person. Also, bigger immersive display size should not be highly prioritised than other important features when purchasing a smartphone. Suppose, if you want to play your favourite games, then you have to make sure the processor is strong enough or not. Likewise, other factors should also be considered.

9. Don’t consider RAM and ROM as the only priorities

If you decide to pick a device just on the basis of better storage and better RAM, then you are likely to waste money twice in purchasing another device. So, understand your requirement profoundly and thoroughly either by reviews or by a technocrat in your group or through some else’s influence and then go ahead and buy.

10. Give priority to the processor

Every activity of the phone solely depends on the type of processor. If you have a high-speed processor, your every single multitasking becomes much fun while operating the device. Therefore, if you want to purchase a phone, you must check for the faster and powerful processor.

11. It is advisable to check the OS version

If you love to explore some of the best camera features amazingly, you must make sure that the “operating system” in your phone works clean and problem free. Also, the good OS also enables other activities smoother and more comfortable in your device.

12. Give an option to the audio quality

Although your phone is a powerhouse of great quality features, it might not generate much effective audio quality. The problem starts when you are in a troublesome situation and are unable to catch the sound. Or, if there is an emergency call and you fail to receive. As such you might suffer a significant loss. The poor audio quality can and might increase your frustration as well, and you might smash it on the floor. So give it extra importance.


13. Understand if you need a USB port/headphone jack

Like so many other great features, a headphone jack is also essential. Sometimes, the poorly shaped jack can lead to adjustment of a headphone, and hence your hindrance increases by not letting you tuned to favourite songs.

Also, the same situation comes with USB port, which might not charge your battery due to improper cable tuning. So it’s advisable to make sure that these connectivity aspects are also in perfect working order.
