Seeing is believing. And if that's the rule we all follow in terms of choosing a new smartphone, then the most important factor for us to consider should be the display screens on offer with the device.
But leaving aside all the puns, the screen of a smartphone is basically the one that generates most of the interest when you first hold it in your hands. Sure the build and the design qualities are also taken into consideration, but none is bigger than the screen on offer.
