Operating system: Android, iOS or Windows- each offers a special set of features. And yes, all variants of iPhones are not as expensive as the newer versions- so you can check out the iOS features without fearing a cash crunch.

Display: The foremost thing for a smart phone to pass off as a good one is its display. A proper display obviously caters to convenient usage of your smartphone.
