Mobile phones today are split between the high end, midrange and low depending on your specifications. Here’s a little guidance manual for each of them.

A few months ago I offered you a few tips to make the best tablet depending on your needs and your budget would. Well, today I’m going to do something similar but focusing on smartphones and according to their characteristics. And, as you know, mobile phones can be classified according to their specifications (high-end, midrange and low).

High-end devices

The high-end devices are those with the best components on the market, such as a 2 GB RAM (although there are some like the Galaxy Note 3 which has 3 GB), quad-core processor 1, 9 GHz and a minimum internal memory of 16 GB. It is equally important to note that these terminals tend to enjoy HD screen resolution or Full HD, at least 4.7 inches, while their respective chambers often have 13 megapixel sensors. And we must not forget batteries with a minimum of 2300 mAh and other innovative extra features, as might be the case of the infrared remote control.


In this area we could find terminals like the Samsung Galaxy S4, the Galaxy Note 3, the HTC One and the Sony Xperia Z. Also enter the iPhone 5 and the next 5S, because although its specs are not as high, its performance is still excellent in all areas. However , the price of these devices ranges between 500 and 800 euros.

Midrange Devices

On the other hand, devices that are located in the middle range are those which have a minimum 4-inch screen and a resolution between 640×480 and 1280×768 pixels. By the way, your RAM should be 1 GB and 8 GB internal memory , while its processor has to achieve at least two cores and run at 1.2 GHz

In turn, at this stage of the race, it is important that your camera sensor enjoy at least 8 megapixels and the battery range as some 2,100 mAh to withstand all day. It is also important to incorporate some other extra services such as NFC system or microSD card slot to increase capacity. In this segment would include phones like the Nexus 4 or the LG Optimus L9, among others. However, the prices of these handsets range between 250 and 450 euros.

Low-end Phones

And finally we come to the terminals today and enter the low-end category. These are all those with a screen of 4 inches or less, with a lower resolution than 640×480 and RAM below 1 GB . Also, also fall into this group of those terminals incorporate a 5 megapixel camera (or even less) and those with an internal memory of 4 GB or less. In this section we would like the Sony Xperia devices Miro, the LG Optimus L5 and so on. Keep in mind that the price of these terminals will be between 100 and 250 euros . That said … now you know which category you have located the terminal or you go to buy according to their characteristics.
