***Clears throat**** it is that time of the month again when you get to buy many devices at a fraction of what they cost; Ladies and gentlemen, it’s November, and Black Friday is upon us! But before you get your crisp notes out of your wallet, pay attention lest we refer you to Proverb 21:20. Let’s start with the basics. Mobile phones are divided into three major categories: flagship, mid-range, and entry-level. Flagships are the biggest and greatest from the manufacturer, the Samsung S22 Ultras of this world, iPhone 14 Pro Max, and Xiaomi 12s Pro, among others. The mid-range, like the name suggests, sits in the middle; it has the premium features that are found in flagship devices but will also skimp on some features, the upper echelon of the Samsung A-series are the kings here (the A7x, A5X), the Redmi Note series are equally well-represented here, etc. The entry-level phone, as the name sound, is at the base of the smartphone pyramid. They are only optimal at calling, sending texts, and for light multimedia use. This distinction should not be taken as rigid. Some phones defy this logic, and the iPhone 14 is probably the best example. How can a 600k+ phone not be a flagship? Ha! The kneeling down of a mother! But the base iPhone 14 lacks the oomph, bells, and whistles of the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max or even Samsung 22 Ultra. The Black Friday fever will be at its fervent point in the coming days. Before you checkout, pay attention to the following points:
This is probably one of the few areas that you hardly pay attention to, and to be honest, as phone prices continue to get higher than
