Compare specs for items like smartphones.

Black Friday may be a great time to buy TVs, gaming consoles, and other cool tech, but it’s an especially great time to buy a new smartphone. Keep these questions in mind when shopping for your new device:

  1. Apple or Android? It’s an age-old debate, but it truly depends on your personal preferences.
  2. How long is the battery life?
  3. How good is the camera?
  4. Is it important for you to have the latest model, or are you willing to save more on an older model?
  5. How long do you plan to keep your phone?

Remember to factor in important accessories like a protective case, chargers, headphones or speakers, etc., when you calculate how much you’re willing to spend. You’ll want to get the most out of your new phone!
