I’m a guy who had dozens of phones, tons of form factors and companies you haven’t even heard of, I’ve owned it, blogged about it and eventually sold it on OpenSooq for the highest bidder, with that being said, here are my requirements for the next smartphone.
1. Screen size
2. Battery power
3. Operating system

4. OTG support
This goes without saying for many modern day phones, but it’s good to check because this feature expands the capabilities of your phone with all sorts of peripherals, you can even connect a joystick and play games! If your battery is big enough you can turn it into a battery bank and help a friend in need.
Some companies like Huawei likes to skim on this feature on the mid-range smartphones, so you might want to double check if OTG is a selling point for you.

These are my top requirements in a Smartphone, there are some optional ones which I will list down below
Having the ability to flash a custom ROM is a great idea – if done correctly – and it really expands options and gives a new refresh for the Smartphone, if not, don’t do it as it will ruin your Smartphone.
In case you got tired of your smartphone, sell it and get a new one, someone will think it’s good and make their lives a little better!
