Simply Point, Shoot and Tell your story.

In today’s world, a snapshot of every moment in and around life has become so effortless with the advent of camera in phones. This special inbuilt feature in the phone, means a lot,  it means we always have it with ourselves and we won’t miss a single opportunity to smile bright.

Now what are the basic specs you have to go through to become a pro?

  • Is it megapixels??? Or a flash???

What if I choose a phone that is camera first and phone second.

Pixels:- Pixel  is digital imaging, it is the smallest controllable element of a picture represented on the screen.

One million pixels =one megapixel.

The number of megapixels relates to the quality of a picture a camera is capable of producing. The higher the number of pixels the clearer the image will be. In the early days of digital photography, when you got less than one megapixel, photos had little to no detail, often appearing “blocky” and “pixilated.” But anything above 5 megapixels is worth it. All you have to do is just point-and-shoot.

Flash:- Well there are two types of flashes one is led flash and other is xenon flash . Almost all of us want a camera phone that does a decent job at home. You can’t fit studio lights and an expensive lens into your pocket, so you need a flash that does the same thing. The answer is GO for xenon flash lights. They are 10,000 times brighter than an led flash, and if you want to capture the minute details then it is always better to prefer xenon light flash.

Now coming back to the question

Is it megapixels??

Is it Flash Light??

Well guys the more the better! higher the megapixels combined with xenon flash light, then you have hit a jackpot.

Mobile Phone Buying Guide – Screen Size

Share this at

India has now become the world’s third largest smart phone market after China and the United States.  Although the popular players in the field of smart phones are the Apple and Samsung families, in the last year we have seen the birth of many indigenous smart phones as well. Irrespective of your budget, it is important to understand the meanings of the specifications listed on online shopping websites.  This way you are sure why your choice of mobile phone was the best.   We take you through the main features of smart phones to help you buy.

# Screen Size/Display

The screen size that you see in inches say 2.4 inch, 4 inch, 5.5 inch etc. is the measurement of the diagonal length of the screen.

  • With a screen size of 3 inch or lesser, it is better to go for it only if it has a keypad else it would be a bit difficult to use the touch screen.
  • A screen size of greater than 3 and upto 4 inch is good for a touch screen but browsing or watching movies may not be that enjoyable.
  • If you want to do more with your smart phone like browsing, playing games, drawing pictures or using apps efficiently,  you should go in for a more than 4-6 inch screen.
  •  Smart phones above 6 inches display are called phablets which are a mix of phone and tablet.  They have a huge screen  and give you a wonderful experience but are difficult to hold as a phone.

#  Screen Size or Resolution by pixels:

Screen size is also sometimes given in terms of pixels say 720 x 1080.  This is called resolution. Pixel is the measurement of the digital image. A resolution simply means the ratio of pixel measurement of the width of the screen to the height of the screen when the screen is held vertically. In determining the quality of a picture the PPI Pixel Density is crucial.  The PPI density shows how close the pixels are packed together on the phone screen.  PPI means Pixels per inch.  It is calculated by dividing the pixels of the width or length by the corresponding screen size.  A PPI of 300 to 400 ppi is good enough for images. But a higher PPI can give you some superb experience with resolutions but would draw more energy.  The Super Amoled Screens are a recent solution which use less power and are  also cost efficient.

Given below is a list of comparative screen size and resolution for some picked top smart phones.
