There are a large number of Smartphone models, with different prices, functions and characteristics. The main brands and the most purchased are Apple, Samsung and Huawei honor 10.

The brands have low, medium and high-end phones; the price is different between the three and will also vary depending on the brand.
• SCREEN SIZE
There are three sizes:
A small one, less than 4.5 inches. In a matter of taste, some prefer to have a small screen that makes it easy for them to control it. Its compact design allows you to reach all buttons with one hand. Although currently the trend is the larger size.
The second is the medium screen, from 4.5 to 5.4 inches. Although larger, most models are easy to use. Here we find phones like the Huawei Y5, iPhone 6, HTC One M9 and Galaxy S6, among others.
The big screen is also called a phablet and it starts at 5.5 inches. In this category we find the iPhone models from the 6 Plus to the iPhone 11 Pro, the Huawei from P10 Plus to the P30 Pro, the Samsung Galaxy Note or Galaxy S10; among others. Users prefer larger screens to watch videos, read ebooks, etc.
• PHOTOGRAPHIC CAMERA
This aspect is also very important. Many choose their Smartphone depending on the quality of the camera. More and more smartphones have large pixel cameras, but not everything is that. In photography, image quality, aperture, speed and characteristics are also fundamental. Also the quality of the lens.
Google Pixel 3 XL, Galaxy Note 10 Plus, Huawei P30 Pro, Huawei Mate 20 Pro, Galaxy S10 Plus, Galaxy S10E, iPhone XS Max and the new iPhone 11; among others, they are just some of the teams that have an excellent camera.
The battery is usually consumed quickly as the months go by and the use we give it. That is why mobile manufacturers have begun to recognize the importance of the battery and dedicate more and more effort to extend the battery life of smartphones.
It is a key piece in any Smartphone is the processor. The computing power of the operation to perform tasks depends on it. The more capacity the phone has, the higher its performance. That is why the processor is very important. Currently, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 dominates the high-end of mobiles; Huawei bets on its Kirin 980 processors; Samsung bets on its Samsung Exynos 9820 processors and the latest Apple phones already have the A13 Bionic.
Both RAM and internal memory are important in a phone. When buying a Smartphone it is important to take into account many functionalities, one of them is RAM, since it is the main one used by the device to load applications and games. Therefore, if you want a good mobile, look for one that has 6 or 8 GB of RAM.
The internal memory of high-end phones must be at least 128 GB to save files (such as photos, videos or text files) and download applications. There are phones that do not have as much memory (or do) but have the possibility of increasing their space with a Micro SD.
• OPERATING SYSTEM
This depends on the taste of the user. Some will choose the same operating system that they had from the beginning and others will want to know the benefits of competition. In terms of options, the best known systems are:

- Windows Phone. It offers some attractive features, such as a dynamic home screen and the digital assistant, although its sales have not been successful.
- It is one of the oldest operating systems, it has a great limitation in terms of applications; In addition, the functionalities are quite limited.
Currently, phones must have Bluetooth 5.0, WiFi 6 (802.11 ax), NFC apart from GPS positioning, A-GPS, Glonass, Beidou, Galileo; to be a quality Smartphone. In addition to having the latest generation in connectivity (4G, 4.5G or 5G -when it arrives-). On the other hand, there are mobile phones with a dual SIM card to be able to have two numbers on the same mobile (it will depend on the use you want to give the device).
• EQUIPMENT WEIGHT
It seems minor, but in reality it should be one of the main points to consider before buying a computer. In fact, there are more users who value the weight of a mobile given the time of use they give it. For this reason, manufacturers currently tend to use more and more lightweight materials to minimize the weight of the mobiles they manufacture, such as polycarbonate, reinforced glass or aluminum. Of course, the larger the screen, the weight will increase.
• QUALITY AND DESIGN OF THE DEVICE
This section also varies according to the tastes of the user. Par excellence are Apple mobiles that take the cake in this regard; however, its direct competitors such as Huawei and Samsung have been working hard in this section.
