Samsung has some of the best selling smartphones in the world, but with such a variety of models and configurations, it helps to have an idea of top features to consider before buying one. Core features such as the processor type, RAM, storage, and operating system are all top properties to note and compare amongst phones. How large and bright the screen is, and how responsive? Is it water resistant? How long will the battery last between charges? Find out how powerful the front and rear cameras are if you’re really into photographs, and consider convenient features such as wireless charging. Finally, compare prices among phones and what kind of plans are available for each.
