Interested in getting a new smartphone but don’t exactly know which one is right for you? The first thing you’ll need to decide is whether you want an iPhone or an Android phone. It’s probably a good idea to stick with using the operating system that you’ve used in the past — so if your old device is an iPhone, then stick with an iPhone, and if you’ve used Android phones in the past, another Android phone should do the job.

You’ll then need to decide on the specs you want under the hood. If you want a powerful phone that will last, it’s worth getting a phone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 or better, at least 3GB or 4GB of RAM, and enough storage for all your files — though the amount of storage you need may not be all that much if you use cloud storage and streaming services.
