Smartphone Must-Have Features

Not many of us can go without our mobile phone! The days of playing snake on your Nokia are gone, and today it’s all about smartphones. There are so many available, but what should you be looking for? Here are the must-have smartphone features.

18:9 Full-Screen Display

The old screens are a thing of the past and it’s all about the full-screen display. So far companies have stuck to this, because consumers enjoy watching TV, playing games, working and doing pretty much everything on their smartphones.

Battery Life

There’s only one phone that offers a supreme battery life and that’s the Huawei Mate 10 Pro. Unfortunately, using many apps means you’ll never get a long battery life that compares to the older phones. The best phones will offer at least one day of battery, so make sure yours is capable of handling heavy usage.

Waterproof Coating

Yes, some smartphones can survive being dropped in the bath now! It’s a relieving fact for anyone that’s lost their phone due to a clumsy mistake. Samsung sells nano coated phones, and it’s likely many other manufacturers will start to soon.


It’s shocking that some of the newest phones lack quality cameras. Blurry photos aren’t acceptable in this age of technology and Android smartphones are known for their poor camera quality. Samsung, iPhone, and Huawei are all three contenders that try to give you the best quality cameras.


Companies are aiming for practicality rather than innovation, which is slightly disappointing. Look out for companies that offer new and exciting smartphone features and take a risk! Hopefully, in the future, we’ll see smartphones breaking more boundaries and companies bringing consumers niche products.
