5 clues that it's time to upgrade your phone

It’s easy to get attached to your smartphone if you’ve had it a while. It’s been with you through thick and thin, and you’ve shared some special moments together.

But nothing lasts forever, especially in the mobile world. It could be time to upgrade, especially if you recognise any of these signs…

1.You can’t read your display

If you got your phone a while ago, perhaps it's smaller than you really want.

And if your display’s dim, unclear and weak, it could be time to look for something better. If you want to upgrade to a phone with a decent display, you’ll find this Lowdown article helpful. Screen tech jargon explained.

2. Your camera’s a joke

If this is the kind of photo your phone takes on an unforgettable night out…

… and if your front-facing camera is so bad that this is how you take selfies…

… you can do better. The good news is that now, even the cheapest phones come with cameras capable of taking sharp pictures. Read this article for more details. Camera phone jargon explained.

3. Your battery life sucks

Is having enough power on your phone a constant worry? When you’re in a restaurant do you find yourself greedily scanning the room for plug sockets? If so, you need a phone that lasts a bit longer.

The latest phones not only have larger batteries, but most will have power saving features to help you keep going long into the night. And new software can make a huge difference to battery life too. Android Marshmallow almost trebles battery life.

4. You're always waiting for your phone to charge

Are you always hanging around, just waiting for your phone to charge? Well, once again you’re in luck - because charging technology has come on in leaps and bounds over the last year or so. You can now very easily find yourself with a new phone that gives you 12 hours of power from a 15-minute charge.

Read about the latest charging technology here. All about Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0.

5. Your software’s behind the times

If you’ve got an older Android phone, you’ll probably be well behind in software.

Android Marshmallow is the software update you need. It’s packed with great features, and it’s now on most good Android phones.
