To make it easier for you, we have come up with a guide that might help you to decide between the flagship phones.

Operating Systems -

Android

It is the most popular one the world over and the reason is it offers you more options compared to other operating systems. Be it size, specifications, customization, design and price. It allows you to have launchers, you can have a different keyboard and allows you tons of multi-tasking. Latest Android phones come with 5.0 lollipop the interface is smoother and has enhanced settings.

iOS

The biggest advantage to pick an iOS device is its selection of apps. Apple’s App Store always has the best and the most secure apps and games before Google Play Store, the reason is they have to capture a smaller set of devices with similar specs. Also offers you tons of accessories as there is barely any change in their designs.
The latest version of Apple’s operating system, which offers an improved Photos app, enhanced notifications and allows you change your keyboard.

Windows Phone

Windows Phone is not popular, but the upcoming Windows 10 update might be favourable. Windows Phone proposes some fascinating features like bold Start screen and the Cortana digital assistant, but they have not been major show stoppers.
Display
While buying a smartphone ensure your display gives you the brightness required for you to read in direct sunlight. Also it is vital to have wide viewing angles as it is comfortable when you have to share your screen with others while watching videos.

Size and Weight

The weight of a smartphone usually depends on its screen size. The 130 gms iPhone 6, for example, has a 4.7-inch display and is one of the slimmest and lightweight handsets in the market.
Whereas in the android range are big-screen phablets such as the Nexus 6, which has a 6-inch display and weighs around 184 gms. Heavy phones are too bulky to carry around. Go for phones that are below 140 gms.

Design

This is a very personal choice and if you are an aesthetic person, you should go for phones likes Galaxy S6 or iPhone 6 it has uni-body. The S6’s glass-and-metal design is particularly striking.

Galaxy Note 4 or LG G4 is a good choice if you looking for a device with removable battery. These phones do not look premium but its meets your requirements. They even allow you to upgrade your phone memory.

Battery

Lots of factors will define the battery life of your smartphone. A smartphone that function for 8 hours and more has a great battery life. Battery capacity is another specification that will determine you phone’s life. Buy a phone that has a battery of 2,600 mAh or more. But there are might be phone who are big on capacity but fail to last long. This can be due to the fact that they are not resourceful enough to meet the phone’s features.
