If you are looking for a smartphone that is not slow this three-step guide will help you choose one of these without problems
Whether due to ignorance or lack of budget, there are people who end up choosing a phone that with time and the download of applications become slow. Sometimes these devices are frozen in full use, which generates a stressful experience. However, getting a fast smartphone goes beyond the money that is available or the brand. When buying, follow these 3 aspects.

1. Internal memory
According to Android FAQs, internal memory is the space that the mobile phone has to store applications and other multimedia content. However, when the internal memory of a smartphone is close to being filled, it is not possible to update some applications, having to use old versions that are becoming slower. Likewise, when the internal memory is full, it generates errors in the phones.
For this reason, when choosing a smartphone, you must consider that it has a minimum of 32 gigabytes. In addition, it is necessary to have a space for external memory -which will allow adding more space to the phone- since currently, a photo can occupy up to 13 megabytes and a song 6 MB, without adding the applications and constant updates.
Likewise, the Tecno web portal recommends downloading some cache cleaner application -like Clean Master, for example-, which helps eliminate unnecessary data created by applications, however, this is only a slight help to the problem of internal memory.

This part of the phone is responsible for processing information and everything we do on the smartphone, from opening applications to load a page on the Internet. The speed of these depends on the frequency (identified with the letters GHz) and the cores, which is the number of blocks that have a processor which work separately, according to Unocero.
The more cores there are, the more information can be processed separately so the performance will be higher, and the more GHz the faster the cores will work. So, when choosing a fast cell phone, it must be considered that it has a processor of at least four cores (Quad-core) with a minimum frequency of 1.6 GHz, with this you ensure a fast performance in the use of the cell phone.
Another important aspect that Unocero explains is the processor's trademark since there are companies specialized in manufacturing efficient and modern processors, the three main ones are Apple Bionic, Exynos of the Samsung company, and the most popular among the Android is the Snapdragon of the Qualcomm company.
3. RAM memory
Unlike internal memory, RAM only stores data temporarily. When you open an application, such as Instagram, and then close it, minutes later when you sign in again, the application will open faster and stay in the same place you left it, this is because the RAM memory was already preloaded.
Now, this memory has the task of temporarily storing the information of all the applications that you use in a certain period, and if it does not have enough capacity it collapses, causing the cell phone to hang momentarily, according to ABC.
For this reason, RAM is crucial for the fluidity of a smartphone and prevent it from locking, so if you are one of those who usually uses different applications, you should consider that the phone’s RAM has at least 3 GB of space, in this way you can enjoy a system without obstacles.
To fulfill these three factors, it is not necessary to spend a large amount of money. The Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus has 64GB of internal memory, eight-core Snapdragon processor at 2GHz and 4GB of RAM, for $ 200.
The Samsung Galaxy A6 is also a good choice, it has 32GB of storage, eight-core Snapdragon processor at 1.8 GHz and 3 GB of RAM for $ 254. There are also other options up to cheaper brands such as Huawei, Sony, Motorola and more, according to Engadget.
