Poll: What new features make you upgrade your phone?
Let’s face it - modern smartphones look more or less the same, and they all do pretty much the same thing. If you line up half a dozen smartphones with their displays turned off, you’ll have a hard time telling which model is which.

Whether or not this is an issue, is besides today’s topic. We were wondering, what makes people upgrade their smartphones? For the past 4-5 years phones have been steadily going toward a unification of sorts.

Almost all of the upper echelon models feature decent OLED displays now, fast chipsets - in fact, much faster than you actually need them to be, good camera systems, fast charging, the whole package!

So, what makes you go “Wow, I need to get this phone!” nowadays? Is it the state-of-the-art camera system with triple-digit zoom levels? Or maybe it’s the latest chipset that’s always faster by some strange synthetic number.

Of course, as stale as it might be right now, smartphone design is still a thing, and you can have small variations in things like materials, frame radius, the camera bump, the position of the selfie snapper, the curvature of the display, colors even.

Please, vote for you TOP priority when buying a new phone! Everyone compares their existing device with the one they want to buy, or two different phones, and we always settle for the one that has the better... fill in the blank. So, go ahead! Tell us what's your TOP priority!
